Data Management: The Straw Poll

In this session, we will discuss the priorities, roles, and benefits of past, current and new technologies, tools, methods, and patterns. This highly interactive discussion will measure and record the opinions of the local data management profession.

Topics will cover the enterprise architecture, data architecture, application development, information sharing, project politics, master data management, data quality and silver bullet specializations…and more.
