Level:  Business / Non-Technical

This session will talk about how Data Governance (DG) best practices can be applied to get a DG program up and running, and also manage it over time and measure success. The presentation will cover:
  • Making the case for why DG is important, its challenges, value and benefits
  • Choosing the best operating model for your organization
  • Developing a DG strategy that adds long term value
  • Measuring, monitoring and communicating success
Through a case study, attendees will learn how to implement data governance best practices and how to embed DG into the fiber of a company to create a culture that values data. We will discuss common pitfalls and obstacles and how to overcome them and create a sustainable program.

Having worked with the software and systems providers key to the formulation of Master Data Management (MDM), Kelle O'Neal has played important roles in many of the groundbreaking initiatives that confirm the value of MDM to the enterprise. Recognizing an unmet need for clear guidance on the intricacies of implementing data solutions, she founded First San Francisco Partners. Under her leadership, FSFP immediately established a reputation as the first-call resource for companies looking to tap the value of Enterprise Information Management (EIM), MDM, and Data Governance (DG).

Kelle developed her ability to work through organizational complexity, build consensus, and drive results in senior roles at companies such as Siperian, GoldenGate Software, Siebel Systems, and Oracle. Kelle's strong background enables her to provide expert counsel to organizations seeking to execute an EIM, MDM, or DG project. Kelle holds degrees from Duke University and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
