  • First-hand, detailed case studies from personal experiences.
  • Concise abstracts outlining what attendees will learn and why/how it is useful to them.
  • Abstracts with topics besides defining data quality and data governance.
  • Solutions regarding resolving data quality issues not a overview of common problems.
