One of the hardest parts of establishing an Information Quality Program is starting the conversation with senior leadership -- getting them to understand there is a problem -- one that warrants their attention and investment. If you have 30 seconds to make your case, can you? We'll explore this phenomenon and provide some techniques that can help you quantify the problem, simplify the communication, and get the ball rolling with minimal cost. IQScoring is a technique that can be applied and leveraged to supplement this communication, but applying it in an optimal way is important. We'll explore some ways to achieve that.

IQScoring was introduced at EDW last year -- the session was well attended and received high marks in the feedback. This is follow-on to that topic, focusing on preparing the communication by understanding what to score, and tying that output to business processes to help paint a picture of overall process maturity, and business preparedness.
