This session will include a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the live audience.
Much of the effort in IT policy and compliance to date has gone into data governance. This is a good place to start, but it only covers a limited surface area of risk and offers a narrow range of advantages for a well-governed enterprise.
In this session, Donald Farmer will explore another aspect of IT policy—why and how we should govern the use of data downstream from data sources. Especially, he will look at the governance of analytics, from embedded reports to dashboards to data science.
Farmer will review some of the regulatory, technical, and organizational issues that must be addressed, and he will look at some of the tools and platforms that make analytics governance practical.
Farmer will also make the case that analytics governance is not restrictive, but rather an enabling policy that can improve collaboration, insight, and decision-making across the enterprise.
