IBM’s Information On Demand Conference will be held this year in Las Vegas from November 3-7, 2013. The conference will have a unique twist this year by hosting five all-day tutorials, which will help you extend skills more broadly to better manage Big Data applications.

On Sunday, November 3, 2013, I will conduct a one-day training class on Data Governance Fundamentals with IBM InfoSphere. The class starts at 9 a.m. and concludes at 4 p.m. You need to register for IOD to attend the class. The cost for the class is $499 and will be added to your conference registration fee. When you register for the conference, you will have the option to add the class as well.

The class will integrate my data governance methodology with IBM InfoSphere tooling. Each session will consist of data governance best practices plus their application to IBM InfoSphere. Approximately 75% of the course content will be product-agnostic around people and process while 25% will be focused on InfoSphere. I have delivered the class several times and have received good feedback.

Here is the high-level agenda for the class:

  1. Overview of data governance
  2. Building the business case for data governance
  3. Organizing for data governance
  4. Data Stewardship Fundamentals
  5. Recruiting data stewards and assigning roles in IBM InfoSphere MDM and IBM InfoSphere Business Glossary
  6. Data governance policies and rules
  7. Building a business glossary with IBM InfoSphere Business Glossary
  8. Creating a data quality scorecard and monitoring progress with IBM InfoSphere Information Analyzer
  9. Governing reference data with IBM InfoSphere MDM Reference Data Management Hub
  10. Governing the lifecycle of information
  11. Aligning with Security and Privacy
  12. Governing big data

I look forward to a great session at IOD. Please email me at with any questions.
