Program Description

We are excited to kick off our 2018 meetings with two great presentations from our local professionals in the Denver community. We have the unique opportunity to hear from individuals that have lived through very pertinent projects locally. Please join us to hear from your peers!

First Speaker: W. Michael Armbuster of JeffCo Public Schools

Title: The Trials and Tribulations of Implementing a Business Glossary at JeffCo Public Schools: Lessons Learned

Abstract: This seminar will present part of the “journey” of data governance at Jefferson County Public Schools: the challenges, the successes, the not so successful, and our future opportunities. We have a Data Governance Council and a great core team of Data Stewards but our initial Glossary implementation was based on using what tool we had on hand, not an intelligent analysis. We had a lot to learn and we have. This seminar will share our journey from chaos to a solid base that we are now leveraging. Attendees will learn:

· One way to begin a Data Governance Program, what worked, what did not, and where there is hope

· How to create pick the right data stewards but turn them into unhappy users and how to change that

· The challenges of a wrong product fit

· How we selected a Data Governance product

· The trials of installation

· Our creation of a solid foundation to move the system forward (CEDS, Ed-Fi, SIF, PESC)

Title: Managing Highly Transactional Data in Digital Advertising

Effectively managing and understanding these transactions at massive scale has been key to the growth of the industry, which has just overtaken TV advertising in annual spend. In this presentation, Manny Puentes will explain how this data is created and share the technologies and best practices seen that store, manage, and visualize this kind of highly transactional data.
