Data Fast Track for
Data Owner & Data Stewards

Would you like to learn the data technology basics and basic terms on the topic of data governance in order to be able to coordinate on an equal footing with all potential process participants in your new role as data owner or data steward? This training teaches you the most important basics about data and AI. As an employee in the role of data owner or data steward, you are part of the specialist side of a data governance initiative and thus responsible for a certain section of the data budget. This gives you the necessary tools to navigate safely through the buzz word jungle and to take on more responsibility in your role.

Why the Data Fast Track? 

The target group for this training is employees who have only a superficial understanding of application systems and analysis-oriented information systems. The focus here is on a target group-specific compilation of basic knowledge. Current buzzwords, such as data lake, data mesh and machine learning, are covered as well as traditional and still current issues, such as multidimensional data modelling.

With the sound understanding of the methods and technologies for implementing data-oriented solutions conveyed here, you will be equipped as a data owner or data steward with the necessary know-how to generate added value from data in your role in the near future.
