Sopra Steria's Dermot Boyle speaking at Data Governance Summit Europe

Wednesday 18 May 2016

to Friday 20 May 2016


 Europe’s only co-located conferences on both data governance and master data management are taking place from 16 – 20 May. The extensive agenda covers five tracks with more than fifty sessions. Through case studies, delegates will learn from the successes and challenges of real world implementations.

18 May, 14:25:  Gary Loughran, Programme Delivery Manager, Department of Health Northern Ireland and Dermot Boyle, Delivery Manager, Sopra Steria will present "Healthcare MDM & DG - from the Cradle to Grave".

In Northern Ireland, the Health and Care number programme was formed in 2003 to develop and master the population index for Northern Ireland. This was at a time when the MDM market was in its infancy.

Over the past 13 years, the programme has evolved and much has been learnt about Master Data Management from both the operational and strategic perspectives. This session will cover our experiences, learning and challenges, from the technical solution through to the customer’s perspective and how it has enabled their business and the pivotal role in eHealth in Northern Ireland. 

Delegates will learn:

  • The importance of Data Governance, or in its absence, a strong data custodian
  • The importance of being an informed customer in vendor selection
  • Critical factors for long term programme success
