10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Level:  Business/Strategic

In a US Presidential election year it seems only appropriate that we borrow the "Town Hall" format for our closing conference Keynote and have an honest discussion about the issues, problems and opportunities that lie ahead for those of us in the data electorate at large. Led by Dr. Tom Redman we will debate and discuss topics such as:
  • Are You Doing Enough on Quality?
  • What's Holding You Back?
  • Overcoming organizational (and individual) fear and apathy
  • Leaving behind the IT/Business distinction
  • Ideas whose time has come (and those which have passed)
  • Where to focus your efforts in 2016

Tom Redman, the “Data Doc," helps companies, including many of the Fortune 100, improve data quality. Those that follow his innovative approaches enjoy the many benefits of far better data, including far lower costs. His recent article, “Data's Credibility Problem," (Harvard Business Review, December 2013) showcases what's possible. Tom's "Data Driven: Profiting from Your Most Important Business Asset" (Harvard Business Press, 2008) is the guiding light for companies seeking to build their futures in data. Tom started his career at Bell Labs, where he led the Data Quality Lab. He has a Ph.D. in Statistics and two patents.
