About the Webinar

Data has become the new black gold, and whichever industry your company is in, if you have not yet adopted data science techniques as part of your business framework this event will change your mind.

The art of uncovering the insights and trends in data has been around since the Egyptians, who used census data to increase efficiency in tax collection and accurately predicted the flooding of the Nile river every year. Just imagine the success that awaits your business if you could extract clear patterns and predictions from data and base all your decisions on the most recent information available to you! Most probably you are already collecting a lot of valuable data via analytics tools on your website and social media channels – this event is going to be your guide on how to make the most of that data to propel your business even further.

Dataversity
Registration

About the Webinar

Data Management and Data Governance are the same thing! Aren’t they? Most people would say that this line of thinking is absurd – or even worse. There is NO WAY that they are the same thing. Or are they?

Join Bob Seiner and Anthony Algmin for a lively, interactive, and entertaining discussion targeted at providing attendees ways to consider relating these two disciplines. You’ve never attended a session like this.

In this session, Bob and Anthony will discuss:

  • The similarities between Data Management and Data Governance
  • The differences between the two
  • How to use Data Management to sell Data Governance … and the other way around
  • Deciding if the two disciplines are the same … or different

About the Webinar

Master Data Management (MDM) provides organizations with an accurate and comprehensive view of their business-critical data such as customers, products, vendors, and more. While mastering these key data areas can be a complex task, the value of doing so can be tremendous – from real-time operational integration to data warehousing and analytic reporting. This webinar will provide practical strategies for gaining value from your MDM initiative, while at the same time assuring a solid architectural and governance foundation that will ensure long-term, enterprise-wide success.

Sponsor:

Dataversity
Registration

About the Webinar

The definition of Data Governance can vary depending on the audience. To many, Data Governance consists of committees and stewardship roles. To others, it focuses on technical Data Management and controls. Holistic Data Governance combines both aspects, and a robust Data Architecture can be the “glue” that binds business and IT governance together. Join this webinar for practical tips and hands-on exercises for aligning Data Architecture and Data Governance for business and IT success.

DataEd Webinar: Key Elements of a Successful Data Governance Program

May 10, 2022
2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific

Sponsor:

Dataversity
Registration

About the Webinar

At its core, Data Governance (DG) is all about managing data with guidance. This immediately provokes the question: Would you tolerate any of your assets to be managed without guidance? (In all likelihood, your organization has been managing data without adequate guidance and this accounts for its current, less-than-optimal state.) This program provides a practical guide to implementing DG or recharging your existing program. It provides an understanding of what Data Governance functions are required and how they fit with other Data Management disciplines. Understanding these aspects is a prerequisite to eliminate the ambiguity that often surrounds initial discussions and implement effective Data Governance/Stewardship programs that manage data in support of organizational strategy. Delegates will understand why Data Governance can be tricky for organizations due to data’s confounding characteristics. This webinar will focus on four key DG elements:

  • Keeping DG practically focused
  • DG must exist at the same level as HR
  • Gradually add ingredients (practicing and getting better)
  • Data Governance in action: storytelling

About the Webinar

The actuarial focus has changed significantly over the last couple of years. Computational power is increasing with exponential growth, in addition more and more data is available. This combination puts the actuarial profession into a position where a new understanding has to be developed on today‘s possibilities of actuarial science and its ethical implications. The new role of actuaries within big data and ongoing digitalisation is not yet fully defined. Best practice experience sharing and exchange of ideas is needed. The EAA is delighted to offer all interested actuaries and other experts a forum for knowledge exchange:

On 12 May 2022, the third EAA e-Conference on "Data Science & Data Ethics" will take place live and virtually. The programme will combine keynote speeches with food for thought from well-known experts and selected talks from professionals through a CALL FOR PAPERS (https://actuarial-academy.com/seminars/conference).
