While most practitioners agree that Information Quality is extremely important for successful Enterprise Information Management, many are unsure how to overcome the numerous barriers encountered while trying to develop or improve their Data Quality or Data Governance program.

This half-day tutorial is designed for practitioners already familiar with fundamental Information Quality methodologies. Capitalizing on those fundamental concepts and principles, this tutorial provides advanced level discussion on Barriers, Critical Success Factors, and Key Components necessary for developing and sustaining an effective IQ program.

Some of the topics discussed in this tutorial include:
  • IQ Program Life-cycle Framework & Meta-methodology
  • Program Management vs. Project Management
  • Human Factors critical to the success or failure of IQ Programs
  • Strategies to help Govern the Human while you improve the Information
  • Important Change Management concepts
  • Using metrics to help identify and communicate program needs and progress
