Data quality has long been the holy grail, and it’s something the industry continues to struggle with. The notion of what makes data right is difficult to explain and going to the nth degree of data quality will cost millions. Data can easily be imputed and in many cases, it will be okay, but the extent of cheating is pretty inconsistent in data management. Many data consumers will demand six decimal places of precision, but is that really needed or will a directionally correct answer suffice? What reference range makes sense? Two data management leaders will weigh in on how much precision is actually needed to determine data quality.
This debate will address:
•Real versus perceived precision
•The role of ‘cheating’ in data management
•High quality history and what is really needed
•Balancing bang for buck around experimental data sets

Following GDPR, we’re seeing a rise in thought leading states like CO, MA and TX pushing for tighter customer data regulations, including the California Consumer Privacy Act coming into effect in 2020. Opt-in aspects will bring new changes to marketing and firms will need to protect new pieces of structured and unstructured data. How can you put protections in for the few states adhering to these privacy protections so that you’re more prepared for others to follow? What are the implications for records management?
Panelists will discuss:

•Making controls tighter and more stringent around personal data
•Ensuring the business lines are executing appropriate risk management to align with regulations
•Implications for records management and data retention

CDOs will be in trouble if they don’t continually link data strategy directly to business outcomes. Across the industry new CDOs are coming into roles, building out data functions while others are joining established data organizations, making their marks and setting their roadmaps. Others are revising and reorganizing their data organizations to better drive business outcomes. How do you ensure you’re in lockstep with the business and new digital initiatives? We’ll hear from CDOs and experts in each of these categories to find out how they are organizing to align data management with business strategy to optimize outcomes.
Panelists will discuss:
•Centralized, federated and hybrid models 
•Engagement and assessment models to capture information to support technology and business teams
•What makes alignment to business strategy sustainable

10:15 am - 10:55 am Rise N Grind Morning Break In The Data Management Café

According to a recent report by IntSights Cyber Intelligence, there has been a 135% increase in bank data for sale on the dark web in the last year. Security is foundational to everything and the gap between security and data management is getting increasingly narrow. If there’s a breach, you’re entrusted to govern it. The data security organization knows the tools, but not the data, the sensitivity and value in the data is a governance issue. How are you protecting not just the semi-structured and unstructured data, but applications and models? How are you addressing the question of access? How is data governance stepping up to meet evolving requirements?
Find out:
•What combinations of enabling technologies and policies are most effective
•How to strike a balance of protecting client data while supporting innovation
•Which categories of sensitive data need to be protected at a higher standard

From developing life saving vaccinations, to the most cutting edge immunotherapies to treat cancer patients, pharma is heavily reliant on quality data to drive business decisions.

•How data is driving different parts of the business
•Contemporary data management technologies and their use cases
•The risks of poor quality data in pharma
