ATTENTION ALL BI/DW AND ANALYTICS PROFESSIONALS
Dear Vancouver BI/DW and Analytics Professionals,
We are pleased to announce that we were able to reschedule Gwen Thomas for our upcoming Chapter meeting on Friday, November 14, 2014. Come hear Gwen Thomas, Founder of the Data Governance Institute present on:
 “10 Ways to Align Information Governance & Management in Complicated Environments”
It's easy to lose sight of how data provides value to an organization if you're mapping your efforts and accountabilities to the paradigm of "Business + IT”, especially if your enterprise environment is complicated.  Now, decision-making becomes complex for funding, requirements alignment, architecture, and other areas. This session provides a framework, tips, and stories from the trenches on how to approach "B+I+T" alignment in a way that demonstrates your commitment to providing transparency and value to the Business.
