Join MDM and find out what every data governance expert needs to know

Oct 11th, 2017

Gary Allemann, MD at Master Data Management

Experts have been working with data for years and have also watched as the business of data has changed. The term “data governance” has moved from a technical term brought up in IT meetings, to a phrase discussed during all business-wide meetings involving data. In addition, business trends have also been moving data governance from something that is “nice to have” to something that is essential for the organisation. These trends include:

  1. The rise of the Chief Data Officer (CDO).
  2. Regulatory oversight.
  3. Business intelligence that delivers.

As a result, Master Data Management invites you to join the Collibra hosted webinar at 17:30 South African time on the 12th of October 2017. Kash Mehdi, Customer Advisory Manager & Collibra University Instructor, would like to share the four essential facts every data citizen needs to know in order to be considered a data governance expert. The webinar will also discuss how to put them into practice, so the organisation’s new (or refreshed) expertise can immediately start making an impact.

Gary Alleman, MD at Master Data management states that in today’s digitally-driven world, data is arguably the most valuable asset of the business and effective management of this data is critical. Without proper data management, organisations open themselves up to risk. Data governance forms an essential part of any overall corporate governance programme, and ensures that data management and data use are aligned with the business and its policies.

“Organisations must start considering if they need a CDO’s help in order to manage their data, find out how to mitigate risk therefore avoiding steep penalties and start to consider if it is time to stop talking about being ‘data driven’ and actually do it,” concludes Alleman.
