Session Description

In order to support speed to market product offerings, drive reporting efficiency, and ensure regulatory compliance, an increasing number of companies are leveraging a Master Data Management (MDM) technology suite to automate manual data-related controls, thereby establishing repeatable and simplified global processes to support business critical MDM.

Deploying successful MDM initiatives and data governance programs are often tightly integrated with other needs of the data citizens such as data quality, data profiling, meta data management, data lineage and governance solutions, all of which enable shared decision-making (planning, monitoring and enforcement) over the management of data assets.

Topics to be discussed include:

• Defining and executing a data transformation initiative to improve data quality, as well as, provide information access & traceability that enables greater business agility

• Understanding how technology is used to drive the federation of data governance practices & solutions, resulting in seamless access to information across the enterprise

• Discovering how a federated approach to tool selection can enable data citizens to spend less time looking for data, and more time solving critical business challenges while managing the bottom line (TCO)
