About the Webinar

Our business environment has been becoming more and more complex: the demands of increasing regulation, slimmer margins, sophisticated customers and employees, competitive pressures, diverse talent pools and pervasive technology. Each business function in a corporation may face its unique challenges. One critical step in overcoming business challenges and winning in the marketplace is to thoroughly understand and trust the data we own, and combine it with the data that we have not explored to support decision making. Quite often than not, a certain line of business might determine that it badly needs data governance; however the enterprise oversight or support is not yet available, or has a different focus. When you find yourself in that situation, should you go ahead and implement LOB level data governance? Should you wait for the enterprise to lead the way when the timing is right?

This webinar will review this common situation that is happening in many corporations, and provide a practical approach to evaluate and determine the best course of action to implement data governance. HoChun Ho, Global Head of Data Governance and Management, JLL, and Shawn Houston, Vice President of Global Data Governance, will share their perspective of implementing data governance from the line of business such as corporate real estate.
