    Do you know where your Data are? 

    Benefits of Centralized Data Management(And Why Microsoft Excel® is not a Database) 

    Everyone has data: this is one of the unspoken universal truths in life.  How that data is collected, managed, organized, and compiled over time is a challenge that many organizations out-source to contractors, data creators, or other third parties.  However, those third-parties may not have the same interests or requirements as your organization, resulting in data gaps and questions over time. 

    With a little planning, Centralized Data Management can be beneficial and cost-effective for any organization.  Taking ownership of your data allows organizations the confidence that they can report, summarize their information with guaranteed accuracy, if and WHEN the need arises. 

    Join us for a discussion on the benefits of Centralized Data Management, and a few approaches that organizations can use as alternatives to costly off-the-shelf software.  Additionally, we will discuss some of the dangers of trusting Microsoft Excel® as a data repository. 

    Where: Zoom, link will be provided in the registration confirmation email.

    When: Wednesday, June 26th from 12:00 - 1:00 pm

    Cost: Members - $5, Non-Members - $10 (to support our scholarships and grants programs)
