Managing Data as an Actual Asset

Increasingly, business professionals (not just data and IT professionals) speak about “data as an asset.”

In this keynote, Douglas Laney will emphasize the need for organizations to adopt a structured and strategic approach to managing data with the same rigor applied to other corporate assets. In this way organizations can maximize the value of their data by mitigating risks, improving operational efficiency, and driving more reliable decision-making.

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "Have valuable information to bring back to help inform decisions that are being made."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "The half-day and full-day classes lead to so much more learning than the usual conference agenda."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "Long learning sessions as opposed to short vendor pitches."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "Leaving the office and being able to think about the things we're experiencing in the context of other businesses."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "One of the biggest benefits I gained from this conference was the knowledge (and templates) from industry experts to start building my organization's road maps. I can actually apply what I learned to my work. I hate going to a conference and only learning hypothetical or conceptual ideas; here I learned things that I can put into practice immediately."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "I found myself very inspired throughout the entire conference. Each day I thought the next couldn’t possibly be as good as the current or previous, and every day I was pleasantly surprised. There was small amounts of overlap of information, but overall I was blown away with how much new information I was able to gain from each course."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "The learning aspect, I love that it is not a typical conference with 1 hour sessions, but has the 4-8 hour sessions. This allows us to get in depth and ask questions related to where we are in our company and careers."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "The content of the classes was by far the best content I've ever interacted with at any conference. I felt like I was back in college and with the amount I was learning."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "In a short time and in a joint and integrated way we were able to acquire knowledge, relevant information of new trends, use tools in practice and meet people from different areas who have the same problems and the same expectations for the course and the information for use in different issues."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "Attending the TDWI conference validated that we are on the right course, developing data products to meet specific business needs."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
  • "Watching live instructors and being able to ask them questions in real time is very beneficial. I can become distracted during virtual training sessions, so in-person training is the way to go for me."

    – TDWI Conference Attendee
