Data, and being a data-driven company, is a top priority for business leaders worldwide. Data unlocks a world of possibilities, from groundbreaking innovation and competitive edge to business transformation and market disruption. But what too many organizations who believe they are “data-driven” are starting to realize is that they actually are not.

Join Stan Christiaens, co-founder and CTO at Collibra, as he shares the secrets to transforming your organization to a data-driven business. In this session, Stan will cover:

  • Why old-school data management doesn’t lead to data-driven business
  • How to prevent meetings from dissolving into data brawls
  • Why duct-taped data governance doesn’t work
  • How to help all data citizens find, understand, and trust their data
  • Why true data governance leads to data nirvana

Stan Christiaens is the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Collibra. He leads the global product organization and is responsible for product management, product design, and user experience. He also leads Collibra University, delivering education and training in data governance. His passion for data comes from his experience as a researcher at the Vrije Universiteit of Brussels, where he focused on the application of semantics. When not speaking to customers and to audiences around the globe, Stan can be found in New York City.
