About the Webinar

Are you spending your summer down by the Data Lake? If so, then you want to make certain that the lake is clean and that you pick the best place to swim. The Data Lake is the new analytical paradise that many organizations are banking on to become that answer to improved insights. And you need to prevent the lake from turning swampy.

in this month’s RWDG webinar, Bob Seiner and a special guest will focus on how to govern the data in your Data Lake. Bob’s interaction with his guests is always lively, fact filled and this month they will help you to successfully swim through major barriers to provide an effective and valuable data resource.

In this webinar, Bob and his guest will discuss:

  •       The relationship between Data Lakes and Data Governance
  •       Preventing your Data Lake from becoming a Data Swamp
  •       Governing the Metadata associated with your Data Lake
  •       Leveraging governed data to provide trustworthy Analytics
  •       Measuring the value of a governed Data Lake

RWDG Webinar: Data Governance versus Information Governance @ RWDG Webinar via Dataversity

Data Governance versus Information Governance

DATE: August 15, 2019

PRICE: Free to all attendees.

About the Webinar

If Data Governance is the execution and enforcement of authority over the management of data and data-related assets, what is Information Governance? How are they the same and how do they differ? This is a question pondered by the greatest minds in Data Management. And there is no correct answer.

Join Bob Seiner for this month’s RWDG webinar where he will compare Data and Information Governance and share situations when it is makes sense to call it one over the other. Most organizations name their program after they select exactly what will be governed and how that governed “stuff” will be used. What are you governing?

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  •       Describing what it means to “Govern” something
  •       How to define Governance in both contexts
  •       Differences between Data and Information Governance
  •       How to select what to call your program
  •       Why what you call your program matters … or does it?

RWDG Webinar: Stay Non-Invasive in Your Data Governance Approach @ RWDG Webinar via Dataversity
Sep 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Stay Non-Invasive in Your Data Governance Approach

DATE: September 19, 2019
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees.

Register by clicking here.

About the Webinar

There are three distinct approaches to implement Data Governance. The Command-and-Control Approach, the Traditional (if you build it they will come) Approach and the Non-Invasive Data Governance Approach. Some organizations select a single approach for their program while others select to follow a hybrid method.

Bob Seiner will provide information about each approach and indicate how the Non-Invasive Approach can follow the path of least resistance with the greatest success. You may be surprised to learn that many of your present activities can be leveraged to address Stewardship, Metadata, and governed processes – all directed at staying as non-invasive as possible.

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  •       A Data Governance framework completed in a Non-Invasive way
  •       How the three approaches differ and when to use each
  •       Sticking to a single approach versus implementing a hybrid model
  •       How to sell Data Governance as something you are already doing
  •       Using the Non-Invasive Approach to win friends and influence people

RWDG Webinar: Build Your Own Data Governance Tools @ RWDG Webinar via Dataversity
Oct 17 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Build Your Own Data Governance Tools

DATE: October 17, 2019
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees.

Register by clicking here.

About the Webinar

Data Governance tools can be enablers of program success…or the reason why Data Governance fails to meet people’s expectations. Software tools can be leveraged or acquired from reliable vendors or developed internally to attempt to address your organization’s needs. Sometimes the best environment is made up of a combination of internal and external tools. What is a practitioner to do?

Join Bob Seiner for this month’s RWDG webinar where he will share tools that you can build yourself and talk about how the tools can be used to determine requirements to acquire outside tools. Tools developed internally at little or no cost have helped to solve many Data Governance problems. Several of these problems and their solutions will be described in detail during this webinar.

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  •       Several easy to build Data Governance tools
  •       Customizing these tools to address specific issues
  •       How internally developed tools can lead to tool acquisition
  •       Knowing when it is time to acquire tools
  •       Integrating DIY tools with acquired tools

RWDG Webinar: How can Everybody be a Data Steward? @ RWDG Webinar via Dataversity
Nov 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

How can Everybody be a Data Steward?

DATE: November 21, 2019
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees.

Register by clicking here.

About the Webinar

A Data Steward is a person in the organization that is held formally accountable for their relationship to data. People can define data, produce, and/or use data as part of their job. Formal accountability for these actions makes these people Data Stewards. By agreeing with this concept, it means that potentially everybody may be a Data Steward.

Bob Seiner will address the idea that everybody is a date steward in this month’s RWDG webinar. Bob will also describe how relationship-based Data Stewardship is the only method for addressing full governance coverage of an organization and what the impact of total coverage really means. You may be surprised at how this is a logical and practical solution.

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  •       How to recognize types of Data Stewards based on what they do
  •       Helping Data Stewards to engage in program activities
  •       Data Stewards as an integral part of a working team
  •       Data Stewardship in large and distributed organizations
  •       How to communicate with a large number of Data Stewards

RWDG Webinar: Utilize Governance Working Teams to Improve Data Quality @ RWDG Webinar via Dataversity
Dec 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Utilize Governance Working Teams to Improve Data Quality

DATE: December 19, 2019
TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific
PRICE: Free to all attendees.

Register by clicking here.

About the Webinar

Data Governance working teams are typically formed with a specific purpose or function in mind. Teams are deployed to address enterprise-wide data issues, business function issues and operational issues. These teams are made up of the “right” people to solve the “right” problem at the “right” time. It is that easy. Or is it?

In this month’s RWDG webinar, Bob Seiner will share his experiences building working teams to improve how data is governed. Bob will talk about setting up the teams, ways to get resources to commit their time, and how to leverage their participation in a non-invasive manner.

In this webinar, Bob will discuss:

  •       When to make use of working teams
  •       How to construct a working team for a specific purpose
  •       Differences between working teams and communities of interest
  •       Monitoring and reporting on working team status
  •       How to deliver successful and repeatable problem-solving teams

Two Day Public Seminar: How to Build & Implement a Non-Invasive Data Governance™ Program @ Sheraton Station Square
Mar 21 @ 8:00 am – Mar 22 @ 4:30 pm

NON-INVASIVE DATA GOVERNANCE™:
THE TWO-DAY PUBLIC CLASS
PITTSBURGH, PA – MARCH 21 & 22, 2016

Many organizations are finding it necessary to implement Non-Invasive Data Governance™ and Data Stewardship programs to improve and achieve discipline and protection around the management of the enterprise’s most critical and valuable data.

Non-Invasive Data Governance™ programs, when applied to the existing organization and information resources of your organization (including structured data, unstructured data, master data, meta-data) are implemented to improve the value you gain from your data assets.  Governance programs typically focus on mitigating risk, improving data quality, reducing data duplication, formalizing accountability for data, and improving business and IT productivity.

Students of this class will learn how to implement effective a Non-Invasive Data Governance™ program and how to immediately formulate a strategy & plan that will deliver measurable results with minimal investment.

Robert S. Seiner of KIK Consulting & Educational Services has been implementing successful data governance and data stewardship programs for more than twenty years and has been transferring “how-to” knowledge to corporate, government and education entities via consulting, consultative mentoring & education for more than twelve years. A significant amount of the Seminar relates to Mr. Seiner’s experiences with many notable companies, government organizations and institutions of higher learning.

Mr. Seiner has offered this Seminar for corporate, government and education entities on site at their locations for many years and began providing the course in a public setting a few years ago due to overwhelming interest. By providing public classes, Mr. Seiner hopes to reach a broader audience and those companies that are interested in learning about successful stewardship & governance implementations but that don’t have the numbers of interested individuals to bring the Seminar on-site.

Space is limited to the first twenty five paid registrations. Please register today!

Regular Registration
