BEST PRACTICES: CIRQUE DU SOLEIL—WHEN DATA QUALITY DRIVES THE SHOW

Mario Cantin, Co-Founder and Chief Data Strategist, PRODAGO

Cirque du Soleil employs approximately 4,000 people from over 40 countries and generates an estimated annual revenue exceeding CD$1B. How do you govern data when (a) your data is about Artists, Shows, Runs, Castings and Performances, (b) your business success factors are creativity, agility and innovation, and (c) data policies, structures and boundaries might be perceived as restrictive and non-productive? How do you bring coherence in data management without impacting organizational performance? The answer for Cirque du Soleil was “value-driven data governance.” This session will provide an actionable approach to data quality management as presented through the context of an organization that thrives on excellence. This approach to data governance and the implementation context (Cirque du Soleil) is uniquely interesting and colorful. More importantly, it is a superb example on how to successfully drive the data governance business case in an organization that is not natively data-driven. In this presentation, data quality strategist Mario Cantin will discuss:

  • Executing a pragmatic, quick payback, value-based framework to data governance
  • Defining what's needed to make IT projects and key stakeholders accountable of data quality
  • Determing how the data governance business case can be self-sustained when driven by data quality requirements
