Sunil Soares announced the publication of his latest book IBM InfoSphere: A Platform for Big Data Governance and Process Data Governance (MC Press, 2013). The book discusses the convergence of big data, data governance and business process management in multiple industries including healthcare, retail, and oil and gas. The book is an accessible guide to organizations looking for best practices to introduce data governance over their big data programs in the context of mission critical business processes.
"Certain departments produce data that others consume. Moreover, each department has its own parochial interests that may not be in sync with the rest of the enterprise which results in an 'anti-agility' syndrome. Successful data governance programs must foster the alignment of interests of both data producers and consumers to treat information as an enterprise asset," said Aaron Zornes, Chief Research Officer, The MDM Institute and Conference Chairman for the global MDM & Data Governance Summit series.
IRM UK also announced that Sunil Soares will be keynoting at the MDM and Data Governance Summit in London in April 2013. The topic of his keynote will be Integrating Data Governance and Big Data with MDM Business Processes. "Business Process Management is a key enabler for MDM, big data and data governance. We are pleased to have Sunil keynote on this topic at our April conference," said Jeremy Hall, Managing Director of IRM UK. "Sunil has spoken at the event previously and has always been extremely well received by our attendees."
