DATAVERSITY is proud to be the preeminent organizer of online and face-to-face Data Governance events in North America, for over a decade.
DG Vision is the first of our Data Governance conferences to be located in Washington, D.C. As with all of our educational programs, the emphasis will be on peer-to-peer sharing of practical experiences through case studies. This focus will be complemented by the foremost experts adding insights and authority through in-depth tutorials and workshops.
Being in the nation’s capital, the event will include a special focus on the subject matter needs of government agencies, including a dedicated track and specific networking sessions for federal employees to meet face to face.
We know Data Governance and Stewardship are business functions first, so this four-day event will look outward to the broader business world, and not just inward to the IT and data communities. With exciting keynotes, thought-provoking case studies and workshops, and dozens of networking opportunities, attendees will return home with new insights, strategies, and professional connections. DG Vision will set the standard for quality, excitement, and influence in Data Governance education and organizational success.
