Steve Adler of IBM Predictive Governance Solutions
If you have a Data Governance program today you already know its easier to start one than do one. Real governing is not like a Hollywood movie. Its hard to know what’s wrong, why its wrong, how to fix it, and how to get people to care or follow the fixes. In the Data Governance Council, we know that too and we want to help. We helped build the market with the landmark work we did on the Maturity Model. That gave you a way of knowing that what your already know isn’t enough. And that gave you a place to start your program.

We are now going far beyond that initial work because we think there’s a way to communicate how your organization really works and to use that knowledge to simulate your environment so you can help folks learn what’s going on, how stuff gets done, and what would happen if you made some changes; in a safe test environment before you put your ideas into production.

We call this Predictive Governance – the SCIENCE of describing the world as it is to run simulations on how we’d like it to be. In this presentation, we’ll explore how this works and how you can benefit.
