There's no argument that data is a corporate asset, but there's often disagreement on how to manage and address everyone's needs. Traditional data strategies assume that data is created, distributed, and consumed within a company's four walls. Today, companies are moving toward external applications and information providers to support their growing business demands. It's no longer sufficient to manage and track where data is created and consumed—we must also know how it moves and migrates.
In this keynote, Evan Levy will introduce the concept of the data supply chain, a new approach to managing a company's data assets. This approach expands the traditional corporate information life cycle to include the numerous data sourcing, provisioning, and logistical activities that are required to successfully manage a company's data.
