Is your data governance solving the right problems or only causing more trouble?
It is widely acknowledged that data governance is now more important than ever as companies aim to become increasingly data-driven in a tightening regulatory environment. However, organizations’ data governance capabilities are often stagnant, regressing, or even missing altogether. In this session Jeremias will discuss why Data Governance determines your success in data management and how to build governance practices that demonstrate business value and actually work.

How to win people over in your data transformation
When building new data capabilities, you always need to involve people. Whether it is the person you are building a service for or the specialist you need to get the right data product developed. When it comes to data transformation, technology is almost never your biggest challenge (nor the solution, though). However, technology feels difficult and that actually blindsights us from seeing that we are not investing enough effort in what is truly difficult; changing people’s behavior. We either make the wrong assumptions about people or are not able to get them onboard.
