Presentation:  Real world management of data assets – Mastering life cycles and supply chains
John Ladley
President, First San Francisco Partners

 

The good news is, “data is being recognized as a powerful asset!” There are many “points of light” that show the value of data. Now the recognition is setting in that organizations simply need to do better at handling their data. Many organizations desire to be “data driven” but are simply not at all capable of fulfilling the vision. How do they get there? They have to position themselves to manage their data life cycles. 

The management of data as an asset, or any other asset, means understanding and directing the entire life cycle of that asset within your organization. John will kick off the TDWI chapter year by defining the critical aspects of managing data life cycles, and how this approach creates a consistent and sustainable framework for data asset management.

9:50 – 10:15
