The Data, Strategy & Architecture Analytics conference is being held in Chicago next month. With more than 15 different workshop topics available and four different keynote speakers and topics, there is much to look forward to if you are planning to attend. If you aren’t, well, why not?

One of the keynotes speakers is Thomas Redman, founder and president of Navesink Consulting GroupHis keynote speech is titled, “What’s Holding You Back?” Redman is known as the “Data Doc” because he helps companies, including many of the Fortune 100, improve data quality.

Believing that fear has replaced apathy and ignorance as the number one enemy of all things data, Redman shares  his thoughts after his most recent scan of the data management space. This fear reflects a growing sense that, sooner or later, data will penetrate every nook and cranny of every industry, company, and department, transforming the work, relationships and power structures. The fear extends beyond business people–even lovers of data feel it.
