Executive Briefing SMI 2011

Date: 27/1/2011

Enabling Value from Data and Information Management – Achieving Business Buy-in

Venture consultants are to host an Executive Briefing on the 9th February 2011. This event is being held as part of the SMI E&P Information and Data Management Conference to be held in London.

Attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of the underlying problems in achieving business buy-in for data and information management investment. This will give attendees an insight into the areas that need focus in their companies, in order to make the business case for applying good data and information management practice and in so doing obtain investment to improve the status quo.


Good information management is increasingly being seen as providing competitive advantage to companies across many industries, since wise business decisions depend on sound data and information. In effect, information management is an enabler of efficient business processes, which in turn creates business value.

However, many data and information managers have problems persuading the business and budget holders to invest in data and information management properly. This lack of investment often results in companies getting caught in the cyclical trap of data cleanup and then data degradation.

This workshop will provide a practical guide to help data and information managers gain end-user buy-in for data and information management. Using an interactive classroom format you will have the opportunity to learn from presentations, exercises and interactive discussions.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Understanding user's behaviours and attitude towards data and information management 
  • Demonstrating the value of data and information as an asset 
  • Benchmarking your data and information management performance with other companies 
  • The standing of data and information management within the business - professionalising the discipline 
  • The importance of business engagement, organisation, roles and responsibilities 
  • Critical success factors in delivering data and information management projects 
  • Benefits management and realisation
