Upcoming Webinar: Enabling data democratisation with trusted and well governed data

7 June 2022

Date: 7 June 2022
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET
Duration: 50 minutes

Data democratisation enables users across an organisation to access and analyse data in a digital format. Its benefits are many and include allowing employees to make informed business decisions without recourse to IT, gaining a better understanding of customers, improving operational efficiency, and achieving a greater return on investment in data. It is also key to digital transformation programmes.

While the potential benefits of data democratisation are huge, there are also significant challenges to getting it right. These include issues around data quality, data governance, data security, and data privacy, as well as challenges of cultural change.

This webinar will review the challenges and opportunities of data democratisation, and discuss how to build a successful solution based on trusted and well governed data.

Register for the webinar to find out more about:

  • The imperatives of data democratisation
  • Challenges to successful implementation
  • Best practice approaches to development
  • The role of trusted and well governed data
  • How to sustain successful data democratisation
