“Making It Real” – Establishing the Interdependence of Data Governance and Your Data Models #mdmdg

“Data governance is at the heart of all data management activities and is heavily reliant on effective data modelling. This is a two-way interdependency. Neither can work effectively without the other.”

In May 2018, Chris Bradley (@inforacer) and I will be running a full-day seminar on this topic at “Data Governance Conference Europe” in London. If you want to find out more, click on this link – https://irmuk.co.uk/events/data-governance-conference-europe – and we’ll see you there.

In the workshop, we describe real-world data governance processes, based upon years of experience with major clients, and the accompanying data modelling practices and additional information required to manage change effectively, including data lineage. Then it will be time for you to put those processes to the test, pushing proposed changes through the data governance pipeline, in which you are a key participant. Will our apparently perfect processes and data modelling practices hold up?

“Making It Real” – Establishing the Interdependence of Data Governance and Your Data Models #edw2018

“Data governance is at the heart of all data management activities and is heavily reliant on effective data modelling. This is a two-way interdependency. Neither can work effectively without the other.”

In April 2018, Chris Bradley (@inforacer) and I will be running a half-day seminar on this topic at Enterprise Data World in San Diego. If you want to find out more, click on this link – https://edw2018.dataversity.net/sessionPop.cfm?confid=121&proposalid=9515 – and we’ll see you there.

#PowerDesigner users- save $$, pre-register for ISUG-TECH 2015, and tell them what you want to see presented

I attended ISUG-TECH in Atlanta for the first time last year, and I think it was the first time they’d had a dedicated track for PowerDesigner. All of the PowerDesigner sessions were well attended, and I know there were some conference attendees (like me) who were only really interested in PowerDesigner. Most of the PowerDesigner speakers (like me, again) and some of the attendees weren’t from the USA, so there was a great international atmosphere.

It would be fantastic if we could expand that experience to more sessions and more people – where else will you find a whole week of PowerDesigner sessions, where else can you meet people facing the same issues as you do, whatever the type of modelling you do in PowerDesigner?

For 2015, they’ve decided to allow people to pre-register for the conference, which gives you $200 discount if you decide to actually attend the conference; you’ll also be able to have your say about what you’d like to see. Here’s what Mike Harrold, Executive Director of ISUG-TECH says about it:

“Pre-registration gives us an opportunity to solicit input from the community about which topics they want to see covered during the technical break-out sessions at the conference, which is important to both ISUG-TECH and the community to ensure the best possible content at the conference. There is absolutely no cost to pre-register and in return we’re extending a $200 discount to all those that do pre-register which can be applied to their actual registration fee later this year.”

Death by Spreadsheet at #EDW13

Did you read my “Death by Spreadsheet” posts on TDAN? Want to contribute to the discussion? Attending EDW 2013 in San Diego?

I’m running a participatory session at EDW this year, called “‘Death By Spreadsheet’ – What Is It, and What Can Be Done About It?“, at 10:30 on Wednesday, May 1st. I don’t aim to do all the talking, so come prepared. See http://edw2013.dataversity.net/sessionPop.cfm?confid=72&proposalid=5180.
