Recalibrating Data Quality, Architecture and Governance Strategies for Better Asset Management Outcomes
Jim Dudley, Enterprise Architect, Piedmont Natural Gas

Leading companies across a variety of asset-intensive industries were among the first to recognize the need for enterprise asset management (EAM) and the importance of treating data as a valuable corporate asset. However, many companies are struggling to take the next major step in moving from basic EAM to true asset intelligence. Building a robust asset intelligence capability will require better coordination across the divergent disciplines of enterprise asset management, enterprise risk management, enterprise architecture, information governance and analytics. This session will explore a series of pragmatic strategies that are designed to drive better asset management outcomes through the recalibration and realignment of these key disciplines, with an emphasis on asset data architecture, quality, and governance.
