Gaining visibility into the successful management of data management initiatives, whether they be master data management, data quality, or meta data management across the organization can be quite difficult. Organizations may have ways of managing processes, but not of setting targets or of collaborating with different data stewards to develop a cohesive look at information across the organization. The proper use of dashboards can help organizations manage these initiatives, set targets, identify lack of compliance before it occurs, and collaborate on a broader level across the organization. What this helps ensure is the ability for data management initiatives to be managed effectively, for gaps to be identified, for communication between IT and business to be improved, and for metrics to be managed in a proactive nature.

This course will help participants:

  • Understand the role of using dashboards and data visualization as part of an overall data management initiative
  • Look at benefits and challenges of dashboard deployments within these types of projects
  • Build a framework or set of best practices to bring back to their organizations in relation to the design of these tools
  • Develop an understanding of different requirements based on the type of initiative within the organization
  • Real life examples of current uses
