Data Governance Conference – San Francisco, CA
Sorry for the long delay in posts. Its been quite busy the past month or so and I haven’t been able to get on here as much as I’d like. But, rest assured, I’ll be posting more often so check back frequently!
I just returned from the Data Governance Conference in San Francisco, CA. It was a great conference with many great speakers, both consultants and practitioners. One of the keynotes was from Larry English, the man for Data Quality. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend checking out his book: Improving Data Warehouse and Business Information Quality: Methods for Reducing Costs and Increasing Profits. His presentation was both funny and well thought out; appropriately enough, he was the keynote speaker Wednesday evening.
Other presenters included the head of the Data Governance Institute (a consulting firm), the consultant from IBM’s Data Governance program Steve Adler, and a very cool (though non-DG related) ‘hacker’ named Johnny Long.
I’ll write more about this, but I’d encourage anyone who didn’t attend to seriously consider attending the Orlando Conference in December. It’ll be great, and if nothing else, its a good excuse to go to FL in the winter.
