Is poor reference data management costing your organization?

The growing importance of data to enterprises is leading to the fast growing importance of data governance. Reference data management (RDM) is a critical area of data governance – reference data is found in practically every enterprise application including back-end systems, front-end commerce applications, and the data warehouse. It impacts everything from the integrity of business intelligence reports to system integration efforts.

Are you a Data Steward that is looking to learn more about how to kick off your data governance program? If so, managing your reference data is a great first step to data governance success.

Who Should Attend: Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects, Data Architects, Chief Data Officers and Chief Information Officers, Data Governance Project and Program Managers, Data Stewards, Data Quality Managers, IT Implementers, Business Intelligence Program Managers and Data Warehousing Program Managers

Join our webinar to learn:

  • Key challenges and essential steps and capabilities for implementing an RDM solution
  • How you can get started by identifying and cataloging where your reference data is located
  • How bringing reference datasets into a multi-user RDM solution lets you take control of the meanings and use of reference data and enables collaboration among all stakeholders
  • What you can gain by identifying and using canonical reference datasets and industry standards
  • How to connect reference data management to broader data governance initiatives and goals such as metadata management or data lineage tracking
