Level:  Intermediate

Data and information are critical assets of any organization and should be considered as valuable a resource as buildings, employees and products. For a company to gain a significant competitive advantage, it must focus on managing and using its data effectively. Data stewardship and the governance of information assets are essential parts of any relevant information systems strategy for the 21st century.

Moreover, without a successful data stewardship and governance program, it is impossible to properly implement an enterprise master data management effort or any enterprise-spanning activity.

This intensive course will deliver a road map for creating and implementing a data governance and stewardship program, based upon successful real-world implementations at several leading edge companies. The attendees will gain an understanding of the importance of data governance, the various types of information management approaches and the data steward’s function in the data-information-knowledge continuum, and it will provide proven approaches to the implementation of a data stewardship and governance program.
