I am honoured to have been asked by Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIMPA) to run a session at their Information On Demand conference to be held in Sydney on 31st May.

My topic for this interactive workshop will be "Data Governance: who's who in the data zoo?" (a session I previously ran at the Ark Group Data Quality Congress) and will cover the following questions:
  • What is Data Governance?
  • Who needs to be involved?
  • Should I centralize or federate Data Governance?
  • How do I get Data Governance on the business agenda?
Effective Data Governance is all about ensuring that your business is deriving maximum value from its information assets, while minimizing risk to the organisation. This requires that organisations successfully execute a number of key processes to support control, risk management, auditability and benchmarking for their data.

However, it also is necessary to ensure that the human factors at play in the organisation are successfully negotiated, and that all necessary participants are engaged to participate in the Data Governance process. 

The workshop will equip participants with the understanding of key human factors associated with a successful organisational approach to Data Governance, and focuses on practical methods and processes of building an information community that collaborates effectively to achieve better business value.
