    • Session Venue: JW Marriott, Washington D.C.
Session Description: It’s no secret that companies need to have control over their data. But too often it seems that an information governance initiative presents an insurmountable obstacle in the form of a major additional expense. Linda Sharp provides ideas on where to derive resources to create an ROI for information governance initiatives when there is no budget and no money to be had. For enterprise-scale organizations, the difficulty in calculating true numerical ROI for data management initiatives has traditionally posed a major roadblock to planning and securing funding for governance architecture. This has been especially true for firms driven by quarterly performance; given specific requirements and constrained budget, this has often resulted in an ad hoc “point solution” approach, spawning multiple data silos and paradoxically increasing the overall long-term cost of information governance. The session hosted by ZL Technologies takes a strategic approach to calculating true ROI, examining oft-neglected factors and broad interdepartmental benefits of holistic governance practices.
