Data Management: Golden rules for enabling data self-service
Data democratisation. Data literacy. Analytics self-service.
Each of these buzzwords brings with it a fundamental challenge for data management - how to ensure that hands-on tools being used by non-technical colleagues are providing one version of the truth everywhere, with built-in standards and governance, while still maintaining the speed and access which is at their heart.
A domain expert who has driven this kind of datafication project will share insights as part of a facilitated conversation aimed at data practitioners in organisations that are asking themselves, how do we become more data-driven? To achieve that goal requires addressing some fundamental data challenges as well as trying to build out a new internal culture.
So what does the data office or data management function need to ensure is taking into account before and during the introduction of self-service?
Will visibility of data assets finally win support for data quality as a continuous improvement programme, rather than just a project carried out at intervals?
How does the data function ensure it remains at the heart of a self-service environment with due recognition, support and budget to avoid post-implementation disengagement?
Through knowledge sharing and a facilitated examination of the issue, led by David Reed, knowledge and strategy director at DataIQ, this event will surface the links between data, technology and practice, while highlighting the gains and risks to be made.
