Kevin's Data Governance Workshop

In my Daily Work, I Help Customers to Have Data which They Can Use

My Name is Kevin Straub. My wife and I live in Stuttgart (Germany). When friends or family ask me what my job is, I usually answer that "I help other companies to have data that they can actually use…".

I learned about the importance of Data Quality more than 11 years ago when I started at IBM as a junior consultant in the area of data warehouse management. The reports that were created based on the existing data in the systems always needed to be reworked or enhanced due to a lack of quality. Since than I always thought, that there must be a more sustainable way of getting good data. Today I know how!

In my daily job I help customers to manage their data, so they get actually value out of this asset. Typically, I support companies with initiatives like:

  • Clean up and maintain clean data with our managed cloud services for customer and vendor data
  • Design and deployment of data management processes, organization & roles for different data domains
  • Design and deployment of data lifecycle processes for different data domains
  • Design and implementation of a corporate data governance & data quality management framework incl. roles, responsibilities and KPIs
  • Design and deployment of holistic data strategy incl. reference use cases in the areas of IoT, digitization, manufacturing and AI

#SharingDataExcellence: Data Governance Basics

From my experience, also in times of new trends and buzzwords like IoT or artificial intelligence, basics like data governance maintain important. We recently answered some frequently asked questions regarding data governance. As for example

  • What is a robust data governance mandate?
  • What is data governance? What are typical data management (data governance) roles?
  • Why do we need data governance?
  • How to develop a data governance framework?
  • What are typical data governance boards?

These and other question are answered here for you: Data Governance
