William McKnight

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I will periodically be sharing my thoughts and observations on information management here in the blog. I am passionate about the effective creation, management and distribution of information for the benefit of company goals, and I'm thrilled to be a part of my clients' growth plans and connect what the industry provides to those goals. I have played many roles, but the perspective I come from is benefit to the end client. I hope the entries can be of some modest benefit to that goal. Please share your thoughts and input to the topics.

It is increasingly apparent that information management is an essential competitive arena at which the company must excel. Business participation comes in the form of data governance. Many have taken strides to forge data governance over one system, but heterogeneous,disparate applications with overlapping data focus is a reality that governance must address. Get pragmatic, explicit advice to forge effective governance that transcends the pitfalls in positioning information as a competitive asset as well as determining the contributions of each level of the business to data governance, aligning governance with business strategy and building a business case for data governance.
