A Webinar by Robert S. Seiner - KIK Consulting & TDAN.com

To register for the FREE webinar please click here.



Successful Master Data Management (MDM) and Meta-Data Management (MD) practices require a strong foundation of roles & responsibilities that address definition, production and usage of the data and meta-data.  In many organizations, a significant number of these roles are already being utilized, albeit in a very informal and undisciplined manner.  Clear identification, communications and coordination of these practical roles will greatly influence the success or failure of your MDM and MD initiatives.


In the first part of a two-part webinar series, Robert S. Seiner will speak about how to leverage existing roles & responsibilities as part of a proven data governance framework to best prepare you for successful implementations of your MDM and MD programs.  The second part of the series will address the question, "We have identified practical roles.  How do we activate them in a non-threatening manner?"  Spend an hour on March 18th and an hour in April with Mr. Seiner without leaving your desk to build and engage a proven framework of "Non-Invasive Data Governance"[tm] roles & responsibilities.

Great summary of a rather complex subject. I will be attending a conference that addresses this same subject in the near future for some (hopeful) clarification. Thanks for the head start!
