Can your organisation turn it's data into revenue and can you sustain the required accuracy and trust levels to maintain compliance and get effective operations?  Most companies are emerging from the age of automation and face the non-trivial task of creating a data driven mind-set that favours fact based decision taken and that uses information centricity to break the organisational silo's.  Assigning a Chief Data or Analytics Officer next to the Data Protection Officer is not going deliver the value if you don't have a clearly defined roadmap, strategy, roles and activities to sustain the initiative. Too often innovation neglects the basic fact that being information centric is about the entire organisation and not just an elite group that has the keys to the kingdom.   This 3 day workshop, encompassing three one day workshops on Defining Information Strategy, Information Governance and Master and Reference Data Management will teach you how you can turn your organisation around and make it information centric delivering on the promise of accurate and trusted business information that supports compliance and boosts innovation.

Course Outline

Day 1
Establishing a Sustainable (BIG) Information Strategy

Many studies have indicated that we have evolved from the age of automation to the information age. Proper information management and insights have become a linchpin that act as a catalyst for the execution of your business strategies. Information can be supporting or defining your business model. Having the data in your organisation is not enough as the true value comes from your ability to turn the data into operational information and insights that allow you to create business value and make strategic and tactical decisions. Aligning your information requirements with strategic business objectives is critical.

Every day organisations make business decisions assuming the information in their system is accurate, but for many it can be costly if the data is flawed, out-dated or unchecked. In a market where everyone is striving for more insights through data, the accuracy and trust of your data can make the difference between competitive advantage and bad decisions.

Aligning your information requirements with strategic business objectives is critical. Organisational, procedural and technical capabilities and policies need to be put in place to provide information management capabilities.

The industry has recognised the potential of information and we’ve witnessed an exponential growth in related tools, database solutions, BIG Data platforms, appliances, Data Refineries, Data Lakes, analytics, algorithms … However many companies are struggling to deploy these concepts in a sustainable and effective way. The number of data breaches and data related incidents are rising at the same, if not higher rate. For that reason the approach this seminar takes is to embrace the innovation and disruptive ability of insight but to embed it in the organisation in a sustainable way.

Do you recognise that information is a valuable asset but do you struggle to deliver on that value?

This workshop teaches you how you can turn your organisation around and make it information centric delivering on the promise of accurate and trusted business information.

Day 2
Information Governance: From Definition to Execution

 

“System fails when people with ability don’t have authority and people with authority don’t have ability?”  Amit Kalantri

Your information strategy may have set the direction but the route is long and winding.  Information governance assures the shared meaning, attitudes and capabilities are consistent with the information and insight risk and value.

Increasing operational complexity and data volumes in today’s organisations often result in unacceptable data quality, escalating costs and redundant development efforts.

You need to establish processes, policies and controls to manage information on all media in such a way that it supports your organisation’s immediate and future regulatory, legal, risk, environmental and operational requirements. The end result will be valued data assets, while lowering the cost of keeping the information consistent.

There are many opinions and books in the market that define operating models for executing information governance but the many years of working with customers has taught the presenter that the key to success is the understanding of the level of maturity of your organisation and the target objectives. This seminar focuses on a consistent role framework that you can adapt to your own organisation.

Do you recognise that information is a business asset but do you struggle to set up the proper roles, processes and architectural principles to manage the information asset?

This workshop teaches you how you can establish and sustain shared meaning and understanding of information and setup the proper tasks, roles and organisational structures that are fit for your level of maturity.

Day 3
Master – and Reference Data Management: From Architectural Patterns to Delivering Continued Accuracy and Trust

In the age of automation, these types of information that are supporting the business processes were stored in the automation solution, ERP had customers, CRM contained the customer relation information. The result is a scattered data landscape with inadequate quality and ineffective information management.

Organisations need to invest in a corporate master data platform allowing them to take a strategic approach to master data management by embedding the processes that ensure the on-going integrity of master data. The master data platform will need to evolve over time as the information strategy forces organisations to increase the accuracy and trust of a broader set of information types. The industry recognises this evolution with the increasing focus on multi-domain MDM over PIM, CDI and Reference Data Management. Often the MDM/RDM solution on it’s own doesn’t unlock the full potential which is why this seminar focuses on several use cases in their broader context.

The promises BIG data sometimes bypass is a result of the fact the lot’s of BIG Data won’t be effective unless you have trusted LITTLE data to understand the context and to get truly the right insights.

Do you recognise that little data matters but struggle to keep it consistent?

This course teaches you how can keep your master – and reference data accurate and trusted.
