Organizations globally are looking at their processes in order to improve and align performance. They're also looking at data and information in order to “steer the ship,” maintain compliance, and mitigate risk. These initiatives work a whole lot better when done in an integrated fashion, and they're also made easier thanks to synergies between data and process modeling.

Alec Sharp and Chris Bradley have been working extensively together on practical techniques for integrating data and process modeling. They'll be sharing their insights on how to get the best results, and the value of business process modeling/management for data management professionals.

Alec Sharp has managed his consulting and education business, Clariteq Systems Consulting Ltd., for close to 30 years. Serving clients from Ireland to India, and Washington to Wellington, Alec’s expertise includes facilitation, business analysis, business process improvement, and, of course, data management. In addition to his consulting practice, he conducts top-rated workshops and conference presentations on these topics globally. Alec is the author of “Workflow Modeling, second edition” (Artech House, 2008) which is widely used as a consulting guide and university text, and is a best-seller in the field.

His first degree was in Chemical Engineering & later he obtained his MBA. In addition to his academic qualifications he holds a number of Professional ones including; BCS level 1 & 2; APM; ISEB; CDMP and Prince 2.

His career included Volvo as lead data base architect, Thorn EMI as Head of Data Management, Readers Digest Inc as European CIO, and Coopers and Lybrand’s Management Consultancy where he established and ran the international Data Management specialist practice.

Currently, Mr. Bradley heads the Information Management practice at IPL, a UK based consultancy and has been working exclusively for the last 3 years with a British HQ’d super major energy company. Within their Enterprise Architecture group, he has established Data Modelling as a Service & has been developing a group-wide Data Management strategy to ensure that common business practices and use of master data and models are promoted throughout the group. These have involved establishing a data management framework, evangelising the message to management world wide, developing governance and new business processes for Data Management and developing and delivering training. Chris is a member of the Meta Data Professionals Organisation (MPO) and the Data Management Association (DAMA). Chris’s interests are motor racing, where he competes in a UK championship & youth work at his local Church. He lists the major reason why he entered the Data Management field rather than Chemical Engineering as being the Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran – you’ll have to ask him over a beer to explain that
