Description Course Outline Exam Details

Very few organizations, large or small, have a well-defined data strategy. In most organizations, the value of data is not well understood. Data is considered the province of the department that creates it and this data is often jealously guarded by that department.

Data is usually addressed on a piecemeal basis. Rarely do organizations work from the big picture and as a result suboptimize solutions, introduce programs which may have an deleterious effect on the overall enterprise, and cause inconsistencies that result in major efforts for interfacing or develop systems that can not be easily integrated

Not having a data strategy is analogous to a company allowing each department and each person within each department to develop their own chart of accounts. The chaos without a data strategy is not as obvious, but the indicators abound: dirty data, redundant data, inconsistent data, and users who are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the performance of IT. Without a data strategy, the people within the organization have no guidelines for making the decisions that are absolutely crucial to the success of the IT organization.

Data is a key asset for most organizations. This online training course teaches how to create and implement a solid data strategy and make effective use of this asset.

You will learn how to:
  • Capitalize on your data asset
  • Get control of your data
  • Determine which data is important
  • Provide an appropriate organization to support the data
  • Sell the data strategy to your management
  • Plan and implement a data strategy in your organization.
This course is geared towards:
  • Data stewards
  • Data owners
  • DBA managers
  • Application developers
  • CTOs

Reviewer: Steve Lutter  
Sid's style works well. The content is well organized, the pace is quick, but not too quick, the slides are informative, Sid's stories are told well, and last but not least his voice is easy to listen to.  I found myself listening very carefully, and that helped.
