I have over 30 years’ experience in Systems Development and Data Management activities across a range of industries – Manufacturing, Software Development, Travel Information Publishing and Insurance. After giving presentations at some of DAMA UK’s public events I became a committee member two years ago. After 6 years with Aviva UK Health as a Data Architect in the IT & Change function, I recently joined the Data Governance Office within Aviva UK General Insurance.
I strongly believe that good data management practices can ensure that data becomes a real asset to be used for the benefit of every organisation. I also feel it is important that teams from ‘the business’ and ‘IT’ clearly understand that they both have an equal role to play in making this happen in a ‘properly joined-up’ manner.
