Ron Clymer, Business Consultant with EPAM Systems
will present a talk entitled
"Please, Stop Selling 'Data Management'..."

After years of seeing the same types of data management presentations at conferences and luncheons, Ron Clymer has had enough!

Why is it, in pursuit of data management and breaking down silos do we as data management professionals commonly find ourselves creating more silos, or reinforcing existing silos?  Ron Clymer, a Upstream Business Consultant with EPAM Systems, takes a broad look at how Oil and Gas companies have fallen short realizing the enterprise value of data management initiatives during the hype of data management, and find still themselves struggling to capitalize on the new hype in town, "advanced analytics" and "machine learning". 

In a current function focused organizational structure, we data management professionals tend to find business capabilities whose scope tends to mirror that of the implementing department's purview.  We then end up buying commercial solution products that are marketed towards our organizational segmentation, providing solutions around monitoring data governance, automating business process, monitoring data quality, integrating systems, or mastering enterprise business objects. However, the value of these initiatives is seldom realized, as they are implemented in a way that supports the immediate function's role in the organization, rather than supporting the broader value chain's processes and goals.

Meanwhile, In the current commodity pricing environment, data management teams struggle to compete for CAPEX project funding to pursue data management capabilities as competing initiatives appear to have a more tangible value proposition.  If data management has an inherently abstract value proposition, the real question is, how can you sell your value proposition to leadership?
