Developing and implementing an effective Data Strategy is an essential step for any organisation looking to innovate. However, even though management may be committed to making progress, it can be difficult to know where to begin.
Data Governance is the foundation that enables organisations to manage their data as a strategic asset. Solid governance will provide a springboard for opportunities. We were joined by Microsoft UK on 30th March to hear insights from them on how this can be put into practise.
This theme, aimed at both management and technical staff, will form a starting point from which to consider the importance of a data strategy and how to implement that strategy across an organisation.
