Q. What is DGIQ?
A. The Data Governance & Information Quality Conference (DGIQ) is the world’s largest event dedicated entirely to Data Governance and Information Quality. Whether you are a newcomer or an experienced data professional, DGIQ West offers practical case studies, advice from experts, and in-depth how-to tutorials.
Q. What makes DGIQ so special?
A. DGIQ is not just a regular business conference – it’s an ongoing community and network of Data Governance and Information Quality professionals. As with all DATAVERSITY conferences, the educational program emphasizes peer-to-peer learning through the sharing of case studies and practical experience. The setting for DGIQ West, on the shores of San Diego’s Mission Bay, is a relaxed atmosphere that helps to encourage this culture of sharing and generosity between attendees.
Q. Who attends DGIQ?
A. Good question! In terms of industries, every major sector of the economy is represented, though the largest industry groups are usually from financial services, insurance, health care, online commerce, and government. The range of job titles and functions is also very diverse, including chief data officers, VP and director-level IT executives, data architects, analysts, auditors, and consultants. And increasingly, this DGIQ event attracts managers from “the business side,” who now make up almost 50% of the audience.
Q. How do I get to speak at the conference?
A. Most of the sessions are selected through a Call for Presentations (CFP) process, currently taking place. If you would like to apply to speak at DGIQ West, please visit our Call for Presentations page.
Additionally, some sessions such as keynotes and panels are developed through specific invitations to the speakers. There are also some vendor speaking sessions that are identified on the program agenda as “sponsored.”
