Event Details

Data Governance is rapidly becoming a ‘must have’ for any organisation wanting to manage its data, improve its quality, and control its security, access and uses. An average organisation’s data is doubling every 15 months. Propelled by Big Data, Cloud Computing and other innovations, this rapid increase in volumes is compounded by the increasing speed and complexity with which data is created and stored.

Organisations are also under increasing customer, regulatory and legal pressures to get data right. Data Governance is seen as a keystone in any solution to address these challenges. Many organisations have already recognised the potential value of Data Governance and have started governance initiatives. Though some have succeeded, many are faltering or have failed. Attending this 2-day seminar & workshop will ensure that you set off on the right path to successful and sustainable Data Governance.
