SIM St. Louis proudly presents Jay Weaver, former Centene VP Pharmacy Operations for a discussion on the how to Establish Successful Data Governance and Data Stewardship within Established Organizations.
Jay Weaver has extensive experience partnering with key business owners within organizations to understand their data needs through documenting use-cases, currently available data, establishing definitions and translating these observations to business requirements.
Big Data Initiatives are withing the top 3 key CIO initiatives within most organizations, but without an effective way to access the right data in the right way with a data governance strategy, no organization will be effective. The key business problems are multiple stakeholders using different information platforms, saving data to disparate databases, few of which are mastered across the enterprise towards a common goal and common viewpoint of the organization. Additionally, their KPI's and data may be calculated in different ways even if the data resides with the same owner. So, reconciling definitions between data sets in common and coordinating metric calculation is key to data governance success.
Jay will offer a mini-workshop for resolving these and other key problems around Data Governance so that the attendee will:
1) Understand the purpose and role of data governance and data stewardship committees and projects
2) Evaluate successes and pitfalls involved in establishing enterprise level data governance initiatives
3) Participate in a real-world example of creating a data use-case from a business owner's perspective and the downstream activities that flow from the learnings
4) Discuss resources and approaches to help kick-start data governance and data stewardship initiatives
Join us Thursday, October 15, 2015 at Webster University with Jay Weaver for this workshop which will help you drive a better understanding of successful Data Governance within your organization.
