About the Virtual Data Forum

The day’s programme includes two virtual networking sessions.

This is the only event of asset management, digital, and strategy leaders in ANZ dedicated to furthering asset management best practice through improved data governance.

Attend to:

  • Hear different approaches for building a successful data governance strategy
  • Discover how to improve your underlying data quality
  • Improve your asset knowledge for optimised performance & maintenance plans
  • Learn from multiple ‘Data in Action’ case studies
  • Put your own data challenges to our panel of expert speakers

Data and its successful management are vital to the ongoing success and competitive advantage of most businesses these days. From accurate planning in development to continuous updating and monitoring of asset health & performance, data has the power to transform businesses into leaner, more efficient entities in the long and short term. So where do you start? And how can you continually improve your processes and technology to stay competitive? The Asset Management Council is proud to welcome you to this year’s virtual data forum, which will look to highlight and tackle the best approaches to achieving these goals.
