The data space is a confused mess–a cacophony of extravagant claims, dire warnings, and mixed signals.
There is “data-driven this,” “analytics that,” “AI the other,” and “manage data assets.” There are concerns about security, privacy, and regulatory reporting. Quality is poor, and there are not enough data scientists, let alone people manage them. How can a make sense of it all, understand his or her responsibilities, and sort out what to do?
Tom Redman is on an Australian Tour to bring the latest in practical, down-to-earth in data quality improvement techniques here. He has consulted with leading international firms and has a very transferable approach for all Executives concerned with making better decision with data.

This seminar is an extension to the two day Getting in Front on Data workshops in Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane. It’s not for the participant – but for their bosses.
In this Seminar you will hear some of the most effective ways to improve data quality and be among peers that are on the same path you are – or will be.
This is the single best book ever written on data quality. Clear, concise, and actionable. We all want to leverage our data resources to drive growth, but we too often ignore the fundamentals of data quality, which almost always inhibits our success. Tom lays out a clear path for each organization to holistically improve not only its data quality, but more importantly the performance of its business as a whole.
— Jeffrey G. McMillan, Chief Analytics and Data Officer, Morgan Stanley
In a word, Tom’s Data Driven book is SUPERB. I regularly recommend this book to people, and in fact right now it is on loan to an Enterprise Data Architect who works in a different industry…
This book is as relevant and important as it was when released in 2008
