Day 2 Highlights from the Conference

We had a great second day at DIG. We covered our first two themes of the conference built around "Creating one version of the truth" and "Insights from advanced analytics".
The Boston Globe and Central Intelligence Agency discussed data management topics for their respective organizations. There was a lot of great discussion with the attendees on governance, which seems to be a hot topic for many organizations. Dan Power from Hub Design also spoke on the topic of Master Data Management.

Infosys, Reliant Energy and Kelley Blue Book each presented for the second theme. It was interesting to see that both Infosys and Reliant use the Balanced Scorecard to frame their dashboard and operational reporting. Most of the panel discussion questions were on the topic of ROI, which was interesting. Bruce Hoffman from Kelley Blue Book didn't need to answer that question since the KBB business model is based on selling the data and analysis on the automotive industry!
We also video taped our megavendor panel discussion with our platinum sponsors SAP, Microsoft and Oracle. We will be posting that discussion once we have a production copy available. Stay tuned.

One last comment. Jevon MacDonald put a nice post on his blog on the conference thus far.
