Many charities struggle to develop consistent models and standards to govern all the data that is collected and stored across the organisation. Putting in place agreed terminology (a data dictionary) can be much more complicated than expected as it is more about organisational culture and breaking down silos than about technology. If you want to integrate systems (HR, CRM, finance etc) and especially if you plan to introduce a central data warehouse and organisation-wide business intelligence this is an essential requirement. Going through a data architecture project will also help streamline compliance with data protection and make delivery of subject access requests and data retention rules significantly easier.

Welcome to the event, introductions and overview of the agenda for the afternoon.



Opportunities and challenges of understanding your organisation’s data
Where is data stored, who uses it for what purposes, where are the overlaps? Is terminology used consistently across teams. Who ‘owns’ the data and do they share it with other teams?


Case studies

Short stories from speakers
