Recorded Webinar: How to optimise the business value of your data using agile data governance

10 March 2022

Data governance is transforming from a risk management and compliance tool with limited and prescriptive controls, to a solution that can help you optimise the business value of your data. In this role, data governance must scale to manage rising volumes of data, more and different data types, and changing user requirements, while continuing to ensure data control and compliance. Agility and automation are also key.

The webinar will discuss how agile data governance can optimise the business value of your data and the underlying importance of issues such as best practice implementation, data quality, and integration with existing systems and data stores. It will also consider the business and operational benefits of agile data governance, and the extent of value that can be extracted from organisations’ ever-changing data landscapes.

Register for the webinar to find out more about:

  • The potential of agile data governance to deliver value from data
  • How to automate and implement agile data governance
  • How to ensure sustainable and compliant solutions
  • Technologies, skills and resources for successful projects
  • The business and operational benefits of agile data governance
