NOTE: This 2-day Seminar continues to Friday.
Metadata is foundational to all data work and should be a top priority of a data governance program. Without an understanding of what data means, where it comes from, or how it’s classified, it’s virtually impossible to extract data’s full value. Data catalogs provide an innovative solution for powering data intelligence and metadata management with governance at the core.
But investing in a catalog tool is only a first step. Optimized value can only be fulfilled when it's embedded into "business-as-usual" processes of how users work on a daily basis, creating a sustainable need and trust in the catalog as opposed to just knowing it is one of many tools available.
In this two-day seminar, instructors Becky Lyons and Gretchen Burnham provide an in-depth exploration of the critical key elements that organizations need to implement data catalogs and business glossaries. The seminar is intended for business and IT professionals at all levels who have been tasked with investigating or implementing a data catalog or business glossary on behalf of their organization. It does assume general business knowledge but not specific technical knowledge or experience. It is appropriate for executives, departmental and/or project managers, data and enterprise architects, consultants, and technical staff. The course is not designed for any specific business domain and, as such, is applicable to any business function that is in need of more reliable information, such as finance, manufacturing, human resources, analytics, operations, and more.
