Almost every large government agency or Global 2000 company is struggling to properly manage their enterprise’s data and its architecture. This difficulty is the direct result of the highly distributed, disjointed, needlessly redundant and overly expensive information technology (IT) environments which currently exist throughout our industry. This situation has triggered the reemergence of corporations looking to establish truly proactive Enterprise Information Management (EIM) organizations to reduce their IT costs and increase hard return on investment (ROI) of their IT and decision support systems.

This real-world keynote address will move EIM theory into a practical program. Mr. Marco will utilize his direct experience building highly successful EIM programs to provide a cautionary watch list of things which you must avoid in order to be successful, and conversely, the best practices that every EIM program needs to adhere to.

  • The role of metadata management and data governance in EIM
  • EIM Data Governance Framework
  • EIM Return on Investment (ROI)
  • EIM Top 10 Things Not To Do - If you avoid these 10 fundamental items you will be well on your way to a major project success
