Be a Better Data Leader, How to Use Lessons from Black Hawk Down
Matt Eversmann, VP, Leadership Development
Monday 5th: 6:00-6:30 pm I Tuesday 6th: 1:15-1:45 pm
Leading analyst firms often cite the success rate of data projects at less than 50%. The problem requires a human solution, not a technical one. Strong leadership at every level is the key to beating the odds. In this session, an authentic American hero, First Sergeant Matt Eversmann recounts the events of Black Hawk Down which powerfully demonstrate the horrors of war, and the leadership qualities that are essential to survive it. This session will inspire you to become a better leader and to create a lasting atmosphere of success in the data governance battleground.

Added bonus: Attendees of this session will receive a free autographed copy of Sgt. Eversmann's book "The Battle of Mogadishu" (the basis of the film Black Hawk Down).

Monday 5th: 5:20-5:50 pm I Tuesday 6th: 6:50-7:20 pm
In today’s environment, it’s easy to spend more time looking for your data than analyzing it.  The need to discover what data is available, know where to find it, and understand if it can be trusted is critical to your organization.  So what is the solution?  A data catalog makes it easier for all users at your organization to find data, access that data and gain insights from multiple data sources and connect that data to business value – all without creating overly complicated processes.  In this session, learn how you can leverage a data catalog to push your overall data governance initiatives forward. See how DATUM’s Information Value Management® data asset catalog finds mission critical data, leverages Google-like search to serve up relevant results,  and easily connects that data to business goals and objectives.
