Democratizing the use, management and governance of data in the new digital era

Sign Up for Our Data Governance Training Course

Why Attend?

Data is no longer generated only by the organisation’s transactions it is also being purchased, borrowed, scraped from social media, shared, and then mined. The traditional approaches to managing and governing the organisation’s vast data troves no longer scales. Data management and governance is no longer the sole provenance of a data focused group in the Information Technology (IT) department. It is now seen as the responsibility of the entire business organisation. This highly interactive course provides delegates with an in-depth understanding of all the aspects of data governance, covering both traditional and the new approaches.  

Benefits Of Attending

  • Gain familiarity with the overall data regulatory environment, including the GDPR
  • Increase the organisation's overall involvement with data management
  • Prepare for the massive increase in data use and application predicted for the next decade
  • Make the maximum use of the data available to the organisation for accurate and timely predictions and decision making

Learning Objectives

This course answers the following questions:

  • What is data governance and how does it differ from data management?
  • Why is data governance important to me and to my organisation?
  • Who is responsible for data governance in an organisation?
  • What are the components of data governance and how are they managed?
  • What are the activities involved in a data governance programme?
  • Does traditional data governance scale to include Big Data, data analytics, and the data intensive Artificial Intelligence applications?
  • Are there any best practices that can be applied to help implement a data governance programme in my organisation?

Is this course for you?
