2021 Agenda

Two weeks before the conference, all delegates are asked to submit questions to our speakers in advance – enabling them to provide insight into the specific issues they would like to discuss.Industrial Data Symposium Online mirrors the format of our established and successful face-to-face conference, featuring a combination of Plenary and Discussion Room sessions.

Plenary

Our Plenary sessions bring together all attendees in a single virtual room – concentrating the event’s focus on a series of high-profile content sessions. These content sessions include presentations from our keynote speakers, as well as expertly moderated panel discussions.

Each Plenary session will be accompanied by Q&A from the audience, allowing you to ask follow-up questions.

Discussion Rooms

Periodically during the conference, the audience will split into four Discussion Rooms, for a 60-minute interactive Q&A, hosted by a leading manufacturer and a technology expert. Each Discussion Room is dedicated to a specific topic, and you can choose the ones that are most relevant to you.

In each session, you’ll hear insights from both of your co-hosts before an extended, moderated Q&A using questions submitted in advance, and live on the day.

Keynote: Data Governance Tips or a Federated IT Landscape

One of the key factors you need to take into account when setting up Data Governance is the IT landscape of the company. Heineken is a multinational FMCG company with 45 ERPs (SAP, JDE, Navision), each surrounded by ~15 satellite systems; Heineken has 80 OpCo’s, SSC, and Global HO. It can be quite challenging to set up Governance across such federated IT landscape, so I have prepared tips and ideas that I have seen and used in my own experience.

I will cover the following topics:

  • Why was Data Governance needed (you might suspect it already),
  • Data Governance Organization design, R&R,
  • What documents and processes were necessary to make it work.

It was definitely an adventurous journey; we keep on learning and searching for improvements as we go. Join me in this session and perhaps you’ll find some inspiration on how to address your own “spaghetti”, as we jokingly say. Every joke has a bit of truth in it though; in fact, it is not that fun at all when there is a lack of Data Governance in your organization. I’m happy to see that there is more of us out there who want to change that, so let’s learn from each other. Sharing is caring, they say!
