Where do you begin with Data Quality? The answer is not obvious when you work in a world of third party applications mixed with home grown applications, a young Data Governance structure, tight budgets, limited resources, systems integrations in progress, no official data models, multiple DBMS platforms and operating systems, and systems users spread across 154 Schools, 86,500 students, 86,500 Parents, and over 14,000+ teachers (4700) and administrators. Here's one idea that worked and has built a solid foundation for future successes and Data Governance efforts.

This session will explore:

  1. The plan: How we fit it in when everyone else had their own priorities.
  2. The reality: what changed, what setbacks happened and how we handled them.
  3. The implementation: how did we do it, how and why did we implement EARLY!
  4. The impact: 'so what? ' Or 'WOW!'
