Professional data management is more important now than ever and has evolved its meaning from reactive necessity to a competitive advantage enabler. That’s why companies increasingly consider data a business-critical asset, with tangible impact on business operational capabilities, business model enhancements, compliance and many other aspects. Many of today’s data management approaches and concepts, however, should be revised and modernized in order to create business value from data.

The CDQ Academy was established to provide professional education in the area of data management. This specialized program has been built in response to the widespread need for practical training in data quality management. Since 2013, more than 400 participants have benefited from the data management expertise of CDQ and the Institute of Information Management of the University of St. Gallen.

Structure of the CDQ data management training program

This data management program is based upon the practice-proven CDQ Data Excellence Management (DXM) Framework, that is a structured reference model addressing all aspects of developing and maintaining effective data quality in digital and data-driven companies. This model has been developed in a joint effort by the Competence Center Corporate Data Quality (CC CDQ). The program consists of three training modules:

  • Module 1: "Data Excellence for Business Value"
  • Module 2: "Governance and Data Quality Management"
  • Module 3: "Data Architecture, Life-Cycle and Applications"

Module 1: Data Excellence for Business Value

Excellence drivers in data management, corresponding strategy development and continual improvements

Module 1 addresses principal business outcome drivers and capability requirements for effective data management that delivers measurable business value. Participants will explore frameworks for contribution of data excellence and its implications for data strategy and roadmap development. This session will also cover an approach to ensuring effective and sustainable improvements in key data capabilities across people, process and technology areas. The conceptual foundation is validated by numerous good practice examples across variety of industry types.

Module 2: Governance and Data Quality Management

Data-oriented governance setup, data quality management and performance assessments

This data management course provides fundamentals for two key data management enabler areas - data governance and performance measurement system. You will learn about typical data management roles and responsibilities, how they become operational in various organizational models, how to design a purposeful data quality monitoring framework and use it for continual corrective and optimization measures. The presented concepts and models are complemented with practical insights into deployment approaches, with reflections on lessons-learned from implementation experience, again with a number of good practice examples.

Module 3: Data Architecture, Life-Cycle and Applications

Enabling aspects for data management in context of business processes and IS environment

The third data management module focuses on very operational aspects of data management - data models, life-cycle processes and lineage, including perspectives on information architecture requirements and solutions. Participants will also familiarize themselves with essential software components supporting data management activities.
