Dear Friends & Colleagues,

TDAN.com and KIK Consulting & Educational Services, LLC are proud to announce our next public course on Data Governance & Data Stewardship. The course titled “How to Build & Implement “Non-Invasive Data Governance”© & Data Stewardship Programs: Delivery of a Proven Framework of Roles, Tools, Processes and Templates” will be offered on January 24th & 25th at the Sheraton Station Square in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The course always receives very positive reviews and has sold out often in the past.

Public and Private companies, Government entities and institutions of learning are finding it necessary to implement “Non-Invasive” (and Non-Threatening) Data Governance and Data Stewardship programs to improve and achieve discipline around the management of the enterprise’s most critical and valuable data. Many of these organizations are focusing on maximizing the value of data integration efforts (CDI, MDM, EDW, ERP, …), improving data infrastructure, securing classified data, satisfying regulators, and improving data architecture as drivers behind implementing “Non-Invasive”© Data Governance programs that are molded to fit their existing organization, culture and behavior.

Visit http://www.kikconsulting.com for more information.

Data Governance and Stewardship programs, applied to the existing organizations, roles and the information resources of your organization (including Data, Master Data & Meta-Data) are implemented to improve the value you gain from your data assets. Governance and Data Stewardship programs focus on improving data quality, reducing data duplication, formalizing accountability for data, and improving business and IT productivity. A “Non-Invasive Data Governance”© Program will rapidly improve the ROI from data architecture, data quality, data warehousing and business intelligence efforts, application integration efforts, ERP, CRM, content and knowledge management, and EAI efforts. [If you are not familiar with the “Non-Invasive Approach to Data Governance”©, please send me a quick email requesting more information.]

Students of this class will learn how to implement effective Data Governance & Data Stewardship programs and how to immediately formulate a strategy & plan that will deliver measurable results with minimal investment.

Please visit http://www.kikconsulting.com for more information.

The instructor, Robert S. Seiner of KIK Consulting & Educational Services, LLC (yours truly) has been implementing successful data governance and data stewardship programs for more than twelve years and has been transferring “how-to” knowledge to corporate, government and education entities via consulting, consultative mentoring & education for more than ten years. A significant amount of the Seminar relates to Mr. Seiner’s experiences with many notable companies, government organizations and institutions of higher learning.

Mr. Seiner has offered this Seminar for corporate, government and education entities on site at their locations for many years and began providing the course in a public setting a few years ago due to overwhelming interest. By providing public classes, Mr. Seiner hopes to reach a broader audience and those companies that are interested in learning about successful stewardship & governance implementations but that don’t have the numbers of interested individuals to bring the Seminar on-site.
