While many studies point out a common reason for project failure being data quality problems in business applications, much fewer discussions take place on why so many projects fail to get data right. We see root causes for this latter point being:

  • Not clearly defining the business objective, success criteria, and how to assess it
  • Lift and shift in data modeling or data migration, perpetuating historical challenges
  • Insufficient or too-late-in-the-game data activities in project methodologies

    In this “take back to your organization” presentation, we will present two simple and broadly applicable frameworks:

  • How to define, plan for, and measure success of a project
  • How and when to incorporate key data activities into your projects to minimize risk and maximize results

    This presentation is intended for business and IT owners, project and program managers, or other stakeholders in application development and delivery.
