As an analytics giant (and, full disclosure, my new employer), SAS has always been in the forefront of advanced analytics and data mining. But the topics of data governance and data management are emerging competencies for SAS – and topics that continue to find new audiences like the one at the Premier Business Leadership Series last week in Las Vegas.

At a DataFlux IDEAS conference a year or two ago during a keynote speech, Jill Dyché mentioned that many data stewards often behaved like “roving linebackers without authority” within their organization, and – to this day – I still love the analogy, more so for the “Roving Linebacker” part than the “without authority” part, of course. Ms. Dyché discusses this topic in detail in her Customer Data Integration book which should be required reading for any and all DataGeeks out there.

In which Jill foregoes the bikini. (You’re welcome, America.)
When I was 9 years old I heard my mother remark to my father that the neighbor’s house had a wet bar.
“What’s a wet bar?” I asked.
“She doesn’t need to know that,” my father told my mother.

“IDEAS 2011,” that is! This year’s DataFlux IDEAS 2011 conference will be in Hollywood, Florida October 3-5, 2011. I am looking forward to attending this year’s conference. Not only is it in a great location, but the topics are not just about DataFlux products. There are many sessions about MDM (Master Data Management), Data Governance, tips and techniques, and quite a few breakout sessions.

I’m really looking forward to heading down to Florida for the DataFlux IDEAS conference in early October. This will be my fourth IDEAS conference, and each year the number of attendees climbs, and the DataFlux team never fails to be outstanding hosts. The conversation is always great, the events are fun and the training is always top-notch.

Sitting in on a seminar a few weeks ago listening to Jill Dyché, David Loshin and Mazhar LeGhari talking about Magic (Master) Data Management (MDM) made me ponder how difficult it would be to embark on MDM projects at a large organization. Typically large organizations come with large numbers of people with opinions, large project plans and large amounts of complexities and politics. I would have guessed the most challenging part of an MDM project at a large organization would most likely be the “sale” of the MDM program and systems themselves.

These days, I seem to see just about everything through the lens of company size. A few of my new clients have internal processes that are decidedly “un-small.” By that, I mean that they make new vendors jump through some pretty major hoops for ostensibly simple things like contracts, “on-boarding,” and connection to VPNs.

In which Jill makes excuses for people who make excuses.
Fall conference season has (mercifully) come to an end, and I can finally reflect on what I learned on my most recent tour of industry and vendor events.
(Editorial aside: I don’t know about you but I like Vegas, I love New Orleans, and if I see Orlando again it’ll be too soon. Note to conference organizers as you finalize your 2010 event planning: The Big Easy still needs our cash! Let’s go back. The jambalaya’s on me!)
