Mastering your Cloud MDM Implementation click here to view a recording
There are few challenges as daunting as consolidating, cleansing and synchronizing your data across multiple domains and data sources. And as organizations like yours manage more information from even more cloud and on-premise sources, it’s becoming increasingly important to keep the information consistent and accurate without adding strain to already-limited resources. Understand how cloud master data management (MDM) can help your organization ensure data accuracy and consistency, as well as improve performance and reduce costs.

Learn how you can:

  • Adopt cloud MDM deployment in a hybrid IT environment
  • Model, match, synchronize, cleanse and enrich master data across domains
  • Scale your MDM to accommodate growth in data varieties, business applications and user demands
  • Implement comprehensive data-governance controls

Embrace the Chaos – click here to view a recording

The one constant in the modern business is change. With a variety of pressures - performance, efficiency, innovation, M&A, regulation - the firm is a collection of moving parts working flat out to meet the changing demands of the organisation. Adding more change or bureaucracy to this environment will meet with great resistance. But there is great opportunity in this maelstrom of change!

In this session Diaku discusses how its data governance approach can help orchestrate the universe of change.

What you will learn:

  • How breaking out of the data governance silo and going beyond data definitions  supports organisational change
  • How a facilitation based approach makes DG a dynamic tool that helps projects deliver the right solutions in harmony with other change efforts
  • How DG can leverage the huge amount of change underway today to meet the DG objectives of the business
  • How DG demonstrates its value to the organisation through the engine of change

Application Integration Demystified: How to use Integration for Competitive Advantage using iPaaS click here to view a recording

Your business depends on the ability to get information where it’s needed, whether interacting with your customers, partners or inside your organisation. But too often, your business applications are disconnected information silos that result in manual processes and inconsistent data, hindering your organisation’s ability to meet market demand and stay ahead of your competition. 

iPaaS is a comprehensive solution for moving, managing and governing information across your applications and data repositories, whether cloud-based or on-premises. 

Hear how a cloud based integration platform enables organisations of all sizes to move, manage and govern data between cloud and on-premises applications. 

Learn how organizations have achieved significant cost savings by eliminating the need for traditional middleware, appliances or custom code using iPaaS.

Facilitate, don’t police click here to view a recording

A key objective of any data governance effort is to embed a culture of reuse and alignment, which is challenging. In practice that means people considering data in their day to day, complying with policies, and working within the data governance framework that the organisation has set.

In this session Diaku discusses how to meet this challenge through partnership, facilitation and enablement.

What you will learn:

  • Why policing doesn’t work at scale
  • How to apply the carrot vs the stick
  • How facilitation enables the community to self-regulate in a modern, agile way
  • How a facilitation approach unlocks value by focussing on outcomes, not procedures
  • Setting up data governance to support a facilitation approach
