About the Webconference
The first installment of a three-part series highlighting research from the 2014-2015 IT Forum national meeting, this session focuses on how to develop a sustainable data governance initiative and improve data quality.
Data management, including data governance and data quality, is often overlooked or undervalued by campus members in the effort to be data-driven. However, fundamentals of data management are critical for developing actionable analytics. Without suitable data management practices, institutions suffer from non-standard data definitions and ultimately data denial from end users.
Watch the presentation to learn how to:
- Understand the importance of institutional ownership of data rather than siloed departmental or individual ownership
- Determine which campus members should have primary roles in data governance groups
- Run more effective and efficient data governance committee meetings
- Understand consequences of poor data quality
- Establish accountability across the institution for data stewardship responsibilities
- Create mechanisms for identifying—and fixing—poor quality data
- Please note that this is an encore presentation of material presented during our May and August webconferences.
