Nicola Askham and Conrad Chuang to present at the MDM & Data Governance Summit Europe on May 17, 2016

Automating Data Governance Policy: How Organizations are Automating DG Policy implementation in Data Management Software

We are pleased to announce that Nicola Askham, the Data Governance Coach, and Conrad Chuang, Director Product Marketing at Orchestra Networks  will present at the upcoming MDM & Data Governance Summit Europe in London on May 17, 2016.

As more organizations develop their data governance competencies one question lingers—How should organizations track/audit/automate the implementation of these policies in data management?

In this talk, Nicola and Conrad, posit one approach. They describe how organizations are using cross-cutting workflows, feedback loops and integration between traditional data governance tools (e.g. business glossaries) and master data management software to bridge the gap between data governance and data management.

This session will include case studies and lessons learned from multiple industries.

When: Tuesday, May 17, 2016 - 15:15–16:00 (DG Track 2)
