Eating the Elephant: How to implement a successful data discovery programme in your organisation

Have you decided to drive a data discovery programme forward in your organisation? Are you worried that it’s a large-scale change programme and implementing it might be like trying to eat an elephant? Sometimes this type of software deployment can feel too big, too chewy and a bit indigestion-inducing!

Well, we’ve got the solution for you.

Sign up to our series of three webinars where we will show you how to eat the elephant without overdoing it. How to break down a data discovery implementation and ongoing programme into a manageable process and logical steps.

Joining us on all three webinars is a veteran of the data discovery implementation, our own Exonar customer Dave Parker from Arrow Global.

Dave drove Arrow Global’s programme of data discovery internally, getting the board and other teams aligned and excited about what they could achieve, putting structure around it and ensuring its success.

So, sign up to our webinar series and let us guide you through the three-stages. You’ll get to hear Dave Parker from Arrow Global share his suggestions, experiences and top tips on how to drive change in your organisation with data discovery. And he’ll answer your questions live.

Our panelists include:
