What Really Works – Determining Data Governance Organization Structures Panel Discussion/Teleconference
April 13, 2012
2 p.m. ET – 3 p.m. ET
A panel of practitioners will discuss the following topics:
- How did you decide/determine what your Data Governance (DG) organization would be like?
- What DG organizational bodies were created and how do they interact with existing teams?
- Has that changed as DG evolved at your company?
- What does your organization look like (for example, size of each team, reporting structures, etc.)?
- Lessons learned – Would you pick a different structure if you knew then what you know now?
David Bartholomew, Information Management Strategy, Southern California Edison
Pablo Riboldi, Solution Manager for Information Governance and Quality LDS Church
So What is a Data Governance Tool?
Because there are so many questions on data governance tools, an industry survey and comparative analysis of data governance tool functionality is being developed and sponsored by DebTech International and TDAN.com. If you have any questions you would like to see this survey address or if you are a vendor of a data governance tool and would like to provide information about your product, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing TDAN.com readers in June in San Diego.
