Better Data Governance through Better Reference Data

Reference data management (RDM) provides a data governance capability similar to the general ledger for financial management. You can live without it, but it’s hard to balance the books. It provides a means to govern how we classify, differentiate, reference, and analyze “things” represented by our data. Bringing together reference data into a single environment for governance and stewardship improves consistent use of the data, improves the quality of regulatory data, improves the results of analytics, improves interactions with our clients, and reduces the costs of data management. Reference master data can also provide a social hub to share classification schemes that result from, or lead to, innovation in the way we see our businesses.

In this session, the speakers share concrete patterns for creating and managing mastered reference data, covering the following topics:

– Understanding & leveraging the codependent relationship between Data Governance & RDM
– Focusing on single trusted source of reference data, vs. application integration, as a priority for maximum business value
– Bringing reference data & business glossaries together

Automating Data Governance Policy

As more organizations develop their data governance competencies one question lingers—How should organizations track/audit/automate the implementation of these policies in data management?

In this webinar, Nicola and Conrad, posit one approach. They describe how organizations are using cross-cutting workflows, feedback loops and integration between traditional data governance tools (e.g. business glossaries) and master data management software to bridge the gap between data governance and data management.

This session will include case studies and lessons learned from multiple industries.
