It’s been an eventful year as organisations ramp up to meet their GDPR obligations. So, with that in mind, our GDPR event programme was borne. An initial series of roundtable events has snowballed and we’ve had the pleasure of speaking to hundreds of attendees from organisations of all shapes, sizes and industries – all hungry for support with their preparations.
I’ve hosted many of these events and what really hit home was how many organisations still aren’t clear on how to tackle common challenges. We see some of these questions coming up again and again, so I’d like to give you a brief summary of the most common.
We hear a lot about the opportunities that effective data management can bring to organisations, but I’m not always sure it’s clear how to apply it, or how to drive value from it. The four pillars of good data strategy offer a view on how to approach it, but the important part is what outcome it can bring.
Here are three takeaways from a recent presentation I gave on the opportunity of GDPR. These will help you think about your data strategy and how to drive value in our data-driven economy, particularly as you prepare the data you hold to support your GDPR compliance.
The proliferation of data provides us with both challenges, and, if managed correctly, great opportunities. So where to start? It’s all about being able to get a full and complete view of your data. Without the ability to bring relevant data elements together into a single view it’s simply impossible to ‘see the wood for the trees’.
