BEST PRACTICES: LIFE AFTER A FAILED DATA GOVERNANCE AND MDM IMPLEMENTATION

Justin Glatz, Sr. Director—Information Services, CONDE NAST

Necessity is the mother of invention—not the mother of a Data Governance implementation. Just because your organization is struggling to rationalize data across ten different BI systems, five separate customer data warehouses, four CRM applications and two different finance systems, by no means implies adoption, acceptance, or even acquiescence to a program that would proactively quell the data-source-based discrepancies that plague it.
With a vantage of 20/20 hindsight, this informal conversation will touch upon some of the revelations that can be only gleaned through the failure of a Data Governance project that had all the promise of clear business necessity, strong executive commitment, and plenty of budget. The conversation will conclude with a quick summary of the next steps being taken amidst the rubble of the Information Management Project to get back on track toward a coherent data future.

  • Understanding how consumerization of IT increases importance of a strong Data Governance practice, but simultaneously increases cultural resistance to enterprise Data Governance
  • Communicating an honest assessment of the enterprise’s existing maturity and changeability with regards to data democratization as a must-do first step
  • Rationalizing whether there can be MDM without Data Governance
