We've been having an interesting discussion in the lead up to our MDM & Data Governance Summit happening Sunday through Tuesday of next week in New York. Most of the discussion has focused on information governance, and our conference chairman, Aaron Zornes, has long embraced a "can't have one without the other" approach.

Zornes is no less passionate about technology, which has become an interesting dividing line in the MDM discussion. On one hand, you know you're getting somewhere when businesses embrace the magnitude of governance responsibilities that have much to do with roles, turf, change and culture. We can agree that kind of heavy lifting and conflict is easier to avoid than to confront. Things like governance programs are usually lagging indicators of actual progress in the process of tackling a difficult business challenge.
