Powering Business Advantage With Your Information Strategy

Information is a valuable business asset that can generate new revenue and power business growth, transformation and competitive advantage. To help you tap the full potential of these major new opportunities and stay ahead of new imperatives, the scope of this year’s Gartner Enterprise Information & Master Data Management Summit has been expanded to deliver the latest enterprise information insights, frameworks and best practices as well as traditional MDM priorities.

Business leaders and IT practitioners now have access to more diverse information than ever before. As the focus shifts from structured or unstructured to hybrid data, the way you steward and curate data, including master data, must evolve. To succeed, you need new skills, leadership roles, technologies, governance strategies and the organizational will to make them stick. You’ll find them all at Gartner Enterprise Information & Master Data Management Summit 2014.
