Rarely do I talk to a customer about MDM without the role of Workflow being discussed within the first 10 minutes.

You may have seen the recent tech talks that the team here have been producing for our clients. In these tech talks an IBM expert will talk through a specific MDM topic in great detail sharing the deep expertise of the architects and developers that are living and breathing the technology. These tech talks are provided for free and just require a simple registration process to allow you to attend. All sessions are recorded and replays will be available shortly afterwards.
One area of keen interest to our clients has been concerning the Stewardship and Governance capabilities provided by MDM, specifically the IBM Stewardship Center, that was released in MDM 11.3. So it falls to me to host the next MDM tech talk on June 23rd. In this session I will be discussing the new capabilities offered by the IBM Stewardship Center, how we are changing the game for stewardship teams looking to evolve their organization to be more reactive to data quality events, engaging line of business users to provide input to data quality issues and adding advanced business rules and intelligence to automate events from across the entire data quality landscape.
A one hour tech talk is no where near enough time to do such a broad and important area justice however, we will spend some time up front explaining IBM's perspective on Information Governance and how IBM's InfoSphere portfolio provides the market leading integrated suite of comprehensive governance capabilities that can flex to suit your specific industry requirements. We will dive into the IBM Stewardship Center and its comprehensive workflow engine, providing collaboration and orchestration across the enterprise and touch on the MDM Application Toolkit, a suite of accelerators designed and built by some of our development ninja's to make creating custom governance workflows and quick and easy experience....and if we have time we may even have a live demo of the latest version of the Stewardship Center. During the session the live chat will be open allowing you to ask questions and I will have a team of experts ready to respond in real time.
If your organization is trying to address the growing focus on Information Governance, if you are trying to figure out how to make your Stewardship organization more efficient, or you just wanted to take a look at one of the coolest new features from the MDM team then don't miss the Mast
