The Schedule

2023 Agenda



Trends in Data Governance

Presented by: Laura Madsen - CEO at Moxy Analytics

Data Governance hype is increasing. Driving a lot of this hype are the big legislative changes happening across the globe, marketing budgets, software vendors, and company-driven data literacy efforts that create demand for Data Governance. A recent article predicted that Data Governance will grow to be a $5.1 billion industry by 2025, but it won’t get there without hype, and hype drives trends.

Not all trends are bad – some are even built to stay. But without some forethought, you might find yourself with a closet full of the Data Governance version of parachute pants. In this session, Laura Madsen will break down the trends that drive growth and the ones that will be a distraction, and how you can tell the difference.

  • What we will likely see as Data Governance grows
  • What will be the Data Governance version of leopard print
  • What should we see and how can we influence it


Using Data Governance to Tackle Tough Data Problems

Presented By: Gretchen Burnham - Principal Data Management Consultant, First San Francisco Partners

Many Data Governance initiatives start with great intentions around data definition but falter when faced with large and complex data problems and related business conflicts, such as multiple versions of an enterprise KPI, legacy data definitions built into critical business processes, data misalignment across business units, and so on. These data problems feel too complex, too political, and too structural to be solved. And yet our organizations are asking us to do just that.

As data professionals, we must identify when a given problem is about the fundamental definition of the data and guide our stakeholders through resolving the issue. This session will share a repeatable and structured approach to identifying and analyzing these kinds of data definition problems and a proven method for facilitating alignment on resolutions.

Following this session, attendees will be prepared to:
• Identify common data definition misalignments and conflicts
• Use a repeatable process to drive data definition alignment


Measuring Business Value for Data Governance

Presented by: Kim Wienzierl - Director of Data, Radio Systems Corporation

In order to sell or sustain your Data Governance program, it is important to measure and report on the business value of it. In this session, you will see some ideas and examples of how to measure the business value of Data Governance beyond the benefits from associated projects.



We will resume at 11:30am

Ben Fox, Head of Data Governance for Electronic Arts (EA)

The most common question the DATAVERSITY community asks in webinars and events is, “How do I convince executive management that Data Governance is important?” Join well-known DATAVERSITY speaker Bob Seiner as he interviews a panel of chief data officers to discuss why Data Governance is an essential component to any business to increase revenue and operational efficiencies.


How to Build a Roadmap for Data Governance

Presented by: Theresa Ancick - Data Governance Strategist, Accura Business Services LLC

I believe Data Governance fully applied to data is what debit and credit is to the financial world. The road to fully functioning Data Governance is customizable, but some features are essential. This presentation will outline the four stages of Data Governance development, how to identify your current state, and what strategies will bring your Data Governance to new heights. We will look at Data Governance in the following four stages:

  • Grass Roots
  • Passive
  • Progressive
  • Fully Functioning


Whose Quality Is It Anyway?

Presented by: Diamond Nwankwo - Senior Data Engineer at Slalom _build

Whose Quality Is It Anyway is a workshop focused on the importance of data quality ownership to mitigate the pitfalls of data quality issues. However, before we can address ownership, employees must first be empowered with the mindset and tools to ensure your organization has a “quality first” culture.
