Strategies for Aligning Governance with Self-Service Analytics
Webinar Speaker: David Stodder, Senior Director of Research for BI, TDWI

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
Governance could not be more essential to realizing value from data, protecting data assets, and enabling personnel to work effectively with the right data at the right time. Yet, as organizations move fast to democratize data access and encourage self-service analytics, traditional models of data governance do not hold up.
It’s tough to find the right balance. If governance is too top-down and rigid, users find ways around it. If governance is too weak, organizations do not have enough knowledge about how data flows through the organization, who’s using it, and why. Sensitive data goes unprotected; expensive regulatory problems crop up. Perhaps worst of all, users start to lose trust and confidence in the data.
Join this TDWI Webinar and learn how your organization can meet governance requirements in the modern world of democratized, self-service analytics. Governance is more than just rules and policies for protecting data. It’s about ensuring data quality, consistency, and relevance so that users have a steady supply of trusted data and are not worried whether they have good raw material for their analytics and visualizations. In this webinar, we will focus on how you can align governance with your organization’s objectives for empowering users with data.
Topics to be covered in this webinar include:
- How to define and address governance priorities and responsibilities
- Using personas to clarify governance use cases
- Making governance fit with democratized, self-service analytics trends
- Best practices for empowering users with trusted, well-governed data
