Data Governance Is a Journey, Not a Destination

Wednesday, January 15 2:30 PM- 4:00 PM ET
Anita Vandervalk-Ostrander, Iteris
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Statewide Transportation Data and Information Systems (Merged with ABJ10 to form Standing Committee on Statewide/National Transportation Data and Information Systems, AED10, on 4/15/2020) (ABJ20)

Although most Departments of Transportation (DOTs) have embraced data governance, implementation continues to be a challenge.  The presence of legacy data systems, understaffed agencies, and difficulty to obtain support across an agency are all deterrents to implementing a data governance system.   Despite these hurdles and many more, agencies are making strides toward implementation of data governance to manage data and information.   This session brings together data and information managers to share their successes and challenges along the journey as they look to the future of data governance.
