"Operational Data Governance"

John Ferraioli
VP, Data Solutions & Sales

October 6, 1:15 - 2:00


An enterprise Data Governance strategy is a futile exercise unless it is operationalized—or to be more direct “strategy is useless without execution.” In this track kickoff session, hear a first-hand account from a market leading manufacturer / CPG organization who applied a process-centric approach in establishing their Operating Model for Data Governance. This presentation will focus on best practices and economic arguments for building a business case for data—which has an impact on business process improvement and analytical integrity. Historically, the sustainment of Data Governance has been very challenging. Through alignment with business process owners, data policies and processes can be consistently enforced to help an enterprise make the leap from a single-project success to a successful program aligned to continuous improvement." By sharing lessons learned from the essential Data Governance tenant of “rules before tools,” this session will cover the following topics:

    • Codifying Data Governance as relevant set of practices that bring participation with a degree of ownership from the business
    • Establishing business rules and standards to support consistency in data quality
    • Measuring and sustaining the operating model for the long haul
