CIMdata to Host a Free Webinar on the Role of Data Governance in a Digital Transformation

In this webinar, CIMdata will offer actionable guidance on this critical topic.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free educational webinar, "Data Governance in the Era of Digital Transformation." The webinar will take place on Thursday, 13 August 2020, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour.

Often, digital transformation initiatives are succeeding or failing based on the robustness of corporate data. As a result, most company executives recognize the importance of Data Governance. Many of these digital initiatives are attempting to force a "data culture," trying very hard to remove the silos of data, tribal knowledge, and data quality issues. Unfortunately, many organizations focus on low hanging fruit instead of organizing a sustainable data governance structure and overall strategy.

In this era of digital, it is astounding that organizations have yet to manage their data in a way that treats it as a business asset, which is the backbone of digital transformation. Data governance continues to fall short of true ROI as organizations continue to believe it is a project, not a process that must be thought through to ensure it is sustainable. Investing in people, processes, and organizational elements have to be championed by executives to place data governance in a strong position for long-term success. This webinar offers useful guidance on this critical topic.
