Successful Implementation of a Master Data Management Programme

Malcolm Chisholm Malcolm Chisholm

This workshop focuses on the key elements of an MDM programme that are needed for overall success.  It gives practical recommendations while at the same time providing a conceptual understanding of what is involved in these recommendations.  Both governance and management are covered, and emphasis is placed in how MDM fits into a larger business strategy and architectural setting.   The business needs of master data are described, including strategies for meeting manual and procedural needs.  The more technical details are fitted into this framework.  MDM programmes are rapidly evolving as new data possibilities emerge and enterprises demand more from MDM than they have previously.  These emerging challenges of MDM are addressed in detail, including how MDM supports data scientists and the relationship between Big Data and MDM.   Attendees will learn:

  • What Master Data is, how it differs from other classes of data, and what its special needs and challenges are
  • The structure of an MDM programme, including how the business needs to be aligned to data governance and data management within an MDM programme
  • How to deal with integration, semantic, history, quality, and other requirements in an MDM programme
  • MDM architectures, including what tooling can offer, and how these vary with different master data entities
  • The relationship of master data with reference data, and emerging areas of MDM

Sustaining your Data Governance Program

Sue Geuens Sue Geuens
Head: Data Standards & Best Practice Adoption
Barclays & President DAMA International

There is a lot of talk about starting a program for data governance, but not a lot has been discussed about keeping it going. This workshop is designed to provide you with practical insight on how to make Data Governance live in your organisation

Data Governance programs take a lot of time, money and effort to get going. Very often companies fail again and again to keep going. And they go back to basics and start all over again - different people, different sponsors, maybe even a different methodology - but starting again. And of course, the rest of the business is frustrated waiting for Data Governance to work. This workshop is designed to help you to take the next steps. We will focus on the following areas:

  • Identify where we are in the maturity curve
  • Prioritise the work to be done
  • Get people involved
  • Refine our communication strategy
  • Get HR involved in building the right KPI's
  • Report our Quick Wins

Join Sue and find out how Data Governance can be sustained and become self-supporting.

GDPR One Day DPO Intensive: Key Skills for the Data Protection Officer

Daragh O Brien Daragh O Brien
Castlebridge

The role of the Data Protection Officer (or Chief Privacy Officer for our North American cousins) will increasingly be a critical one in organisations processing personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, coming into force on 25th May 2018) makes it a mandatory role in certain circumstances, but it is generally recognised as a good idea in organisations to have someone with responsibility for the oversight and governance of Data Privacy issues and obligations.

This workshop will take you through a detailed overview of the DPO as a Data Governance role. It will look at the key skills and knowledge a DPO must have. Combining a whistle-stop tour of the Data Protection law principles, the workshop will then:

  • Examine Article 29 Working Party guidance on the role of the DPO and how that maps to good practice in Data Governance
  • Look at the role of the disciplines of the DMBOK wheel in effective Data Privacy Compliance
  • Demonstrate how Data Quality principles, practices, and methods can be applied by a DPO to support Privacy Impact Assessments and demonstrate effectiveness of compliance
  • Provide an overview of how effective data governance and stewardship practices are key to ensuring alignment of day to day information management with the requirements of data privacy compliance
  • Examine how Agile approaches to Governance and Master Data Management can help ensure a responsive and proactive data privacy governance environment for the DPO in your organisation.
