Although many a data management initiative may have been put on hold during the recession, that situation started changing again this year. As business leaders have become increasingly keen to arm themselves with accurate and timely corporate information in a bid to exploit potential growth opportunities, data quality and data governance projects in particular have started to gain both in appeal and funding.
But data management is a complex field with numerous different facets, approaches and supporting technologies. As a result, it is important not only to find ways of keeping up to date with the latest trends and developments but also to network with peers in order to swap key learnings and share best-practice advice.
In order to help you do just that, we have compiled an overview of the key data management conferences and seminars taking place in the UK this year and into next:
These one-to four-day events cover topics ranging from information governance to master data management and business intelligence and consist of everything from keynote speeches and case study presentations to workshops, how-to clinics and roundtables.
These one- or two-day workshops provide attendees with in-depth practical insights into everything from data modelling and enterprise architecture to information process quality improvement.
