Why take this Course?

Many organisations are struggling to manage ever-increasing data volumes and complexity. The need to manage this, and reduce the resulting financial, legal and regulatory risks of not doing so, is becoming a paramount concern. Data governance is seen by the Data Management Association (DAMA) and other eminent data management organisations as a ‘must have’ core capability, without which all other investments in data management, including data quality, data analytics, business intelligence et al, can never fully realise their potential. This course will show you how data governance does this by ensuring that data is valued as an asset by the business, and so ensures the collaboration needed between the business and IT to maximise the value of data, and so truly enabling data-driven decision making.

Is there an Exam

The course does not include an exam but contains several exercises to enable attendees to practise some of the techniques taught. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion from IRM UK.
