BackOffice Associates Offers Next-Generation Governance Best Practices at Data Governance Information Quality Conference

CSO Rex Ahlstrom Advises Enterprises to Extend Beyond Traditional Data Governance by Setting, Executing and Enforcing Policies Companywide

SAN DIEGO, Calif. and SOUTH HARWICH, Mass. – June 29, 2016 – Offering key best practices on extending information governance initiatives for improved business value across the enterprise, Rex Ahlstrom, chief strategy officer of BackOffice Associates, a worldwide leader of information governance and data modernization solutions, today delivered a presentation on “Governance 2.0: Enabling Complete Business Process Governance” at the Data Quality Information Quality (DGIQ) Conference in San Diego.

“Achieving next-generation information governance means leveraging automation to establish, execute and enforce business processes across all data applications in the enterprise—whether HR, CRM, manufacturing, finance, supply chain or beyond. This approach moves beyond traditional governance programs that seek to simply maintain clean or updated data in a siloed approach,” said Ahlstrom. “Establishing comprehensive process orchestration around all critical business data is essential for enabling consistent and reliable information governance programs.”

Ahlstrom spoke about the importance of empowering the business user by collectively establishing and enforcing data-centric business process policies that are designed to drive the engagement and success of every role in the organization. He also advised organizations to maximize the business value of their data by creating a business process design that aligns business rules across departments and offers a transparent view of data flow throughout the organization.

BackOffice Associates is a Gold sponsor of the DGIQ Conference, held June 27 – July 1 at the Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. Please visit us onsite.
