Jill Dyché

There you are! What took you so long? This is my blog and it's about YOU.

Yes, you. Or at least it's about your company. Or people you work with in your company. Or people at other companies that are a lot like you. Or people at other companies that you'd rather not resemble at all. Or it's about your competitors and what they're doing, and whether you're doing it better. You get the idea. There's a swarm of swamis, shrinks, and gurus out there already, but I'm just a consultant who works with lots of clients, and the dirty little secret - shhh! - is my clients share a lot of the same challenges around data management, data governance, and data integration. Many of their stories are universal, and that's where you come in.

I'm hoping you'll pour a cup of tea (if this were another Web site, it would be a tumbler of single-malt, but never mind), open the blog, read a little bit and go, "Jeez, that sounds just like me." Or not. Either way, welcome on in. It really is all about you.

September 2009 Archives


In which Jill outlines her fall speaking schedule, and racks up the airline miles. (As if she needs more of those.)

I'm speaking at some exciting industry events this fall and recommend all of them highly. Consider attending one of these--you're bound to meet some cool people and learn something new. And if you decide to come, send me an e-mail and we'll have a cocktail. Or--to keep to a theme--a lovely glass of Sancerre.

 

SAS Canada: Once again I'm reprising my annual pilgrimage to the birthplace of my mother, Canada. Oh, Canada. You love your data governance and data quality, don't you? (Thee?) In addition to meeting with key SAS clients, I'll be speaking in the following cities on the following dates:

 

  • September 22, Toronto: Data Quality with Teeth: The Role of the Data Steward
  • September 24, Montreal: Making Data Quality Stick
  • September 30, Regina: Your Data Governance Checklist for Success

 

DataFlux IDEAS. DataFlux has a great group of customers and prospects and this year the conference is on Amelia Island. I'll be co-presenting with my colleague, Kimberly Nevala, on Data Governance from the Bottom Up. Baseline's Evan Levy will be an expert panelist on the closing panel. Amelia Island, October 5-7.

 

Teradata Partners. I'm embarrassed to say I've been to almost every one of these conferences since their inception in the 1980s. The title of my supersession this year is "Launching Data Governance Through Your BI Program"--a particularly apt topic for Teradata customers and prospects! Washington D.C., October 18-22.

 

Midwest Healthcare BI Summit. This new conference is a promising one, not only because of the topic, but because of the energy around data integration and analytics in the age of healthcare reform. My keynote presentation is titled, "BI Strategy in Healthcare: Building Your Roadmap." Minneapolis, October 27.

 

TDWI World Conference Fall 2009: Although a good time was had by all last year in New Orleans, the Fall TDWI conference is once again back in Orlando. I'll be teaching BI from Both Sides, and Kimberly Nevala and I have revamped our full-day workshop, Data Governance for BI Professionals, for Tuesday. Baseline's Evan Levy is one busy management consultant, delivering MDM for BI Professionals and Gathering MDM Requirements: A Different Formula. Orlando, November 1-6.

 

I'll be blogging from most of these events, which will take me right up to Thanksgiving at which point I'll probably stick a pot-pie (or my head) in the oven and call it a great Fall 2009. Looking forward to seeing you at one or more of the above events!
