The Seven Deadly Sins of Data Management
Wednesday, October 18, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. CDT
All too often, data professionals are our nemesis when it comes to handling data and data management. Many data professionals and system administrators fail to recognize that the danger in our own habits increases the risk that the business will fall short of its goals. The danger may not be as destructive as an all-out data breach, but we are often to blame for enabling our business end-users to lust after BIG DATA, resulting in data hoarding that leads to ROT (redundant, outdated, trivial information).
So, while the world’s collective media shines a light on the never-ending list of security breaches, we suggest that there are common—and bigger—threats that data professionals need to guard against. Not all data professionals are guilty of every one of these sins. Rather, the collection of individuals who work in modern enterprise IT shops is culpable. Head Geeks™ Thomas LaRock and Destiny Bertucci will share examples of data management, or rather, mismanagement.
