The Oracle Applications Users Group is having their annual community event, Collaborate, in Las Vegas on April 7-11. I'll be there in the Winshuttle booth talking to attendees about solving master data problems. I also have the below session scheduled for Friday at 11 am.
Improve master data quality with Excel and SharePoint
Business user tools such as Excel and SharePoint can be utilized to improve processes for master data creation and maintenance. Power users in the business can create web forms and spreadsheets for data collection and validation. Combined with automated workflows, these provide the business with transformed processes for ongoing data governance. In this session, it will be discussed how to quickly improve data quality with lightweight and cost-effective solutions, employing a bottom-up approach that will yield immediate results.
