Data Governance: In Practice and Over Time

This presentation combines a case study of a very successful data governance program at IFC with an overview of some of the challenges of continually adapting a data governance program to the dynamism of changing business objectives and global operations, along with non-stop technological and IT innovations.

Those in the early stages of a data governance program will receive very practical advice on how to deliver business value and highlight what kind of pitfalls to avoid as their practice evolves. Participants will see similarities in the challenges that IFC is facing and there will be a robust discussion on experiences.
