What would you do if you walked into a business that was committed to doing Data Governance, but everything had to be built from the ground up? Where would you start? What approach would you take?
This presentation details just such a journey at a major membership and insurance provider. The business is totally committed to Data Governance, and looked to the presenter to tell them what to do, from laying out the plan to determining what tools they have and what they need. And the presenter had to live with the results!
You will learn how to:
- Set realistic expectations
- Get the message out
- Figure out an approach
- Adjust project methodology to include metadata, data quality, and governance
- Starting up a metadata and data quality practice and integrating it into the organization
- Stand up a Data Governance organization
