Share Article

Recognized as the world’s largest event dedicated entirely to data governance and information quality.

The need for effective, business-driven data governance just keeps increasing.

DebTech International and DATAVERSITY™ today announced the agenda and opening of registration for the annual Data Governance and Information Quality Conference (DGIQ). Designed to address the needs of business and IT executives responsible for managing corporate risk and accountability through effective information management, DGIQ 2013 will take place June 17-20, 2013 at the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa in San Diego, CA.

“The need for effective, business-driven data governance just keeps increasing,” said conference chair and co-sponsor Davida Berger of DebTech. “New regulations, competitive necessities and Big Data are raising the stakes for all organizations, and high-integrity, high-quality information is absolutely essential to addressing these needs.”

The conference curriculum is suitable both for those who are starting out with data governance, as well as those who already have programs in place. Novices will learn how to plan for Data Governance, addressing both the business and IT sides of the equation. The agenda includes foundational “how to” sessions, breakout discussion groups and case studies to meet the diverse needs of the audience. Experienced practitioners will learn from more advanced case studies and in-depth classes and can expect to return to their organizations armed with specific governance improvements.

DGIQ is the premier event in Data Governance and Data Quality information. Over four days, attendees can choose from 15 pre- and post-conference tutorials as well as conference sessions, keynotes, and panels.
