Course Description

The value of any database is estimated as a direct result of its ability to provide valuable information to its users. Data as an asset has been widely discussed, but few organizations manage data as an asset, focusing on maximizing its value. Instead, the emphasis is on quantity of data, not quality or utility. Data value is a direct consequence of its quality and its usefulness. Data quality is measured by its compliance to business rules which establish thresholds that define and measure the correctness of data. Data utility is measured by data's ability to generate information necessary to make correct business decisions. In this course, we will examine the management of data through its life cycle which includes identification, acquisition, authentication, validation, assessment, maintenance, archival, and retirement. We will also explore the valuation of data with the goal of achieving a mature data environment in which data's value increases the overall value of an organization. You will, as a result of this course, draft a Data Management Policy which will define Data Management activities to improve the value of your data.

Prerequisites: Experience using data as an administrator, a programmer, an analyst, or a user is recommended.
