PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS – GROUP A: SELLING DATA GOVERNANCE TO THE BUSINESS: BEST PRACTICES BY INDUSTRY AND JOB FUNCTION

Sunil Soares, Founder & Managing Partner, INFORMATION ASSET LLC.

One of the major challenges with any information governance program is explaining the value to the business. Most information governance programs deal with certain themes that are common across every enterprise including poor data quality, inconsistent business terms, fragmented data, high storage costs, regulatory compliance, and security and privacy issues. However, these themes present themselves differently across different industries and job functions.

This session discusses the best practices to sell the value of information governance in four parts:

  1. Best practices by industry that deal with the application of information governance principles within banking and financial markets, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, travel and transportation, government, oil and gas, telecommunications, and utilities.
  2. Best practices by job function that deal with the application of information governance principles within critical job functions such as sales and marketing, finance, information technology, information security and privacy, human resources, legal and compliance, operations, product management, and supply chain.
  3. Cross-industry best practices that deal with horizontal topics such as roles and responsibilities, metrics, metadata, and maturity assessments. These themes appear consistently within information governance programs across job functions, industries, and geographies.
  4. Information governance software tools that deal with the applications that benefit from information governance and the actual software tools that facilitate information governance.
