Topic: “A Common Sense Framework for Effective Data Management and Integration”
Presenter: Doug Whall

Description: This lively, informative, and interactive tutorial on effective data management and integration methods, tools, and technology will enable participants to guide their organization’s efforts to improve their data governance, data architecture, data quality, data discovery, data modeling, data standards, master data management, and use of rapidly evolving technologies such as web services, SOA, XML, and cloud computing. All of these concepts will be presented as part of an integrated framework modeled after the Data Management Association’s DMBOK (Data
Management Body of Knowledge).

This tutorial will address the following topics:
-The Data Management and Integration Challenges of Large Organizations
-Applying a Data Management Framework
-Lessons Learned in Data Architecture and Governance
-Technology Impacts on Data – Web Services, Big Data, Cloud Computing, Tools
-Challenges of Data Discovery and Data Access and Data Protection
-How Data Modeling and Data Standards Have Affected Data Integration and Management
-Strategies for Managing the Impacts of Social Media, End-User Control, and the Increased Rate of Change
-Improving Master Data Management (MDM) and Data Quality

About the Presenter: Doug Whall has over 30 years of experience while focusing on the development and use of large data repositories and advanced software systems. He has been supporting the US intelligence community’s efforts to integrate its data in order to make data, systems, and
expertise more discoverable, accessible, trusted, and managed. His primary roles have been as a senior information technology architect and manager with a heavy emphasis in enterprise level data, software, and systems engineering methods, tools, environments and projects.
Doug consults and trains large software development projects on at over 200 projects at organizations such as AT&T, Motorola, E-Systems, etc. to help them successfully introduce CASE tools and software engineering methods (e.g. requirements management, joint application design (JAD), structured analysis and design for real time systems, object oriented analysis and design). He has helped
organizations identify appropriate systems engineering methods and tools tailored to each project based on a framework for evaluating the factors that affect the success or failure of new methods and tools.
