Teaming up with ASG at the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in Sydney

This week, I spent a couple days in Sydney, Australia attending the Gartner Data and Analytics Summit—and it is worth sharing my experience. It was quite an involved event, where thought leaders from different areas of the Data and Analytics domain came together to discuss some of the upcoming trends and critical success factors in organizations’ data and analytics journeys.

In fact, I had the great opportunity to present my own journey in the data governance space—specifically, the work I have done for Bupa with our partner ASG Technologies. I shared the stage with Kaushik Bagchi, VP of Information Management, Asia Pacific, ASG Technologies, to present our session: “Bupa ANZ: Data Governance Journey Fueled by ASG Technologies Data Intelligence.” Together we shared how Bupa has leveraged ASG’s Data Intelligence technology to drive data-led transformation within our organization.

Numerous participants approached Kaushik and me, wanting to discuss how to go about setting up the right processes and framework for a successful data governance journey. We did our best to explain best practices based on our experience, though the most important part of all those conversations, and hearing their journeys, was that I also got to learn from other attendees, too. That was the biggest takeaway—and the value of attending conferences such as the Gartner Data and Analytics Summit. Beyond my presentation with ASG, I also got to interact with industry leaders and listen to some of the very accomplished keynote speakers. It is always inspiring to hear from these people.

The Gartner Data and Analytics Summit was time well spent with people from the same data governance fraternity—presenting to them, listening and learning from each other and moving forward to drive some valuable business outcomes around data. This is the work and collaboration I am passionate about, both at Bupa and in my partnership with ASG.
