Data Governance Skills for the 21st Century

Duration: Three Day Workshop

Prerequisite: None

Course Outline

Traditional data governance practices were capable of managing data as an asset until recently. However, technology trends such as big data, cloud, self-service, and agile now challenge traditional data governance practices. At the same time, increasing regulation of data and concerns about data privacy and security raise the stakes for governance. With new pressures, new technologies, and more data, it is time to learn and implement new governance techniques.

Data quality management is an integral part of data governance and one of the most vexing of governance issues. Most organizations have persistent and long-standing data quality problems that they correct reactively. A proactive data quality management program shifts the focus from correction to prevention and makes remarkable changes in the quality and value of your data.

The Data Governance Skills for the 21st Century workshop will cover essential techniques and best practices for data governance over three days of in-depth, interactive training.
