My colleague and I had a great time presenting (and conversing) about data quality and data management at the 13th Annual MIT Chief Data Officer and Information Quality Symposium (MITCDOIQ). Read the recap about how we were able to explore the rich insights of our Global Data Management Report and the trends and impact that data management initiatives are having on today’s businesses.
On June 5th and 6th, I had the privilege of attending the 2019 Summit on Government Performance and Innovation in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet local government employees and learn how they are leveraging data and technologies to build a more connected, innovative, and sustainable government.
We at EDQ kicked off June by attending the Data Governance and Information Quality (DGIQ) Conference in sunny San Diego, California. Read what we took away from the event and see what trends the data experts are seeing and talking about!
This week, I attended the 2018 Tessitura Learning and Community Conference (TLCC) in Orlando, FL. For the first time, a Disney property was selected for this conference and at first, I was surprised by the size of this location. However, once I arrived I realized that while the venue seemed larger than ever before, the 1900 attendees filled it up quite well. So when the conference shared that this was the largest attendance of any previous Tessitura conference, it wasn’t hard to believe. This community is growing and is strong, and throughout the conference, I saw many positive trends.
Last week, myself and members of the Experian team attended the MDM and Data Governance Summit in Chicago. The main topics of this conference were MDM (Master Data Management) and DG (Data Governance), although at many times, it was difficult to tell the difference. MDM and DG are starting to meld together as one topic, with MDM being the data repository for all (or as much as possible) corporate data, and DG being the documentation and “GPS” for navigating the data (in this case, GPS means “Gain Perspective Simply”.
Experian had the privilege of being recognized as the corporate honoree at the Spirit of JA Celebration last night. The Spirit of JA is the annual celebration, auction, and awards ceremony for Junior Achievement of Northern New England. Junior Achievement (JA) is a non-profit organization that has 120 chapters in the United States and runs youth programs worldwide. Its mission is “to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy. Using hands-on experiences, JA helps to prepare young people for the real world by teaching skills in financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship.” The local chapter, which was started in 1945, serves the young people of Northern New England by partnering with businesses in the community and training individual volunteers to provide hands-on lessons to students in grades K-12.
This year’s Experian Marketing Suite (EMS) Client Summit was one of many celebrations. This marked the tenth anniversary of Client Summit. There were many exciting announcements at the event including the news surrounding the finalization of the divestiture from Experian announced in November. There was also a bit of anticipation of what the new company and EMS experience would look like.

At Experian Data Quality, we’re passionate about giving back to our community and building the next generation of leaders. On February 16, 2017, we did just that by hosting a fundraiser to support a local nonprofit, YouthBuild. The Boston-area organization helps low-income individuals reclaim their education and build the skills they need to thrive in employment. According to the organization, there are “at least 2.3 million low-income 16-24 year-olds in the United States who are not in education, employment, or training.” YouthBuild aims to service this population and help to unlock their potential.
This title is a quote—and what a quote, huh? I nabbed it from a video about Google’s exploration into virtual reality. But it resonated with me because it was new; it was unique, and it was such a refreshing change to the same things I hear over and over again.
And so, this post is a tribute to the original, to the ideas that I hadn’t read a million times over. These are 9 of the most memorable quotes I heard from the speakers at Content Marketing World 2016 and why I think they’re worth sharing.
