Structure of the CDQ data management courses
Our data management training program is based upon the practice-proven CDQ Data Excellence Model (DXM) framework, that is a structured reference model addressing all aspects of developing and maintaining effective data quality in digital and data-driven companies. This model has been developed in a joint effort by the Competence Center Corporate Data Quality (CC CDQ), from which the CDQ Academy emerged.
The program consists of three training modules:
Excellence drivers in data management, corresponding strategy development and continual improvements
Module 1 of the data management course addresses principal business outcome drivers and capability requirements for effective data management that delivers measurable business value. Participants will explore frameworks for contribution of data excellence and its implications for data strategy and roadmap development. This session will also cover an approach to ensuring effective and sustainable improvements in key data capabilities across people, process and technology areas. The conceptual foundation is validated by numerous good practice examples across variety of industry types.
Data-oriented governance setup, data quality management and performance assessments
This data management course provides fundamentals for two key data management enabler areas - data governance and performance measurement system. You will learn about typical data management roles and responsibilities, how they become operational in various organizational models, how to design a purposeful data quality monitoring framework and use it for continual corrective and optimization measures. The presented concepts and models are complemented with practical insights into deployment approaches, with reflections on lessons-learned from implementation experience, again with a number of good practice examples.
Enabling aspects for data management in context of business processes and IS environment
The third data management module focuses on very operational aspects of data management - data models, life-cycle processes and lineage, including perspectives on information architecture requirements and solutions. Participants will also familiarize themselves with essential software components supporting data management activities.
