Part 3 of 3 webinars on the theme of trusted data

Continuing from the previous 2 webinars covering the importance of trust in knowledge work, this webinar concludes with the all-important perception of trust as seen by the professionals actually using the data.
 Jay Hollingsworth explores what it takes to bring a data consumer to trust the data he or she is assigned to use, the steps taken to reach trust, and how critical elements such as metadata, data assurance and data lineage all make it quicker and easier for data users to trust their data.  Standards regarding data exchange, metadata and other aspects of data are critical to conveying these information items and as such are an important building block in establishing trust in data.
It takes place August 8, 2019 at 9:00 AM Central Time, and the projected duration is one hour including time for Q&A.
