My Journey of Creating Data Quality Management Applications

Maintaining the data quality across multiple systems used in multinational organizations has been always a top challenge. Organizations spend enormous budgets on data quality management activities but majority of these efforts could not reach to maintain a desirable state for the related companies. In the first part of his presentation, our speaker will share his unique story about an application which he developed and started in a small subsidiary but later became a World Wide business critical platform with more than 7000 unique users. He will share his experiences on how he delivered more within the limited budgets while keeping the multiple data sources under control. In the second part of the presentation, the speaker will talk about another data quality initiative that he has been dealing with recently as a new personal project on maintaining data of cloud based CRM systems. During this presentation, both parts will contain some hands on demonstrations and it will be followed by a short discussion.

The EIM Special Interest Group – A Summary and Transition

The IRMAC EIM Special Interest Group was launched in June 2010 to provide a forum for discussion and consensus on realistic and effective approaches for establishing information management as a critical enterprise program. Its goal was to define strategies, models, techniques and tools for establishing Enterprise Information Management (EIM) in an organization, that would serve as a resource management function in much the same way as Finance and HR. The Group represented an opportunity to contribute to an original piece of thinking about establishing information stewardship in organizations.

This goal proved to be ambitious and loftier than could be achieved. In this brief discussion, the speaker, who co-chaired the SIG from Jun 2010 to March 2012, provides a frank retrospective on what the SIG was trying to achieve and the challenges that were encountered.
