Lead the Conversation: Quality and Integrity
February 22, 2023

Lauren Maffeo's specialty is designing digital products and services for federal government agencies, but the full breadth of her expertise spans all things data governance. When it comes to the combination of people, processes, and tools used to help organizations manage data at scale and with quality, few people have Lauren's knowledge and experience.

We recently sat down with Lauren to discuss capturing data at scale, cultivating data stewardship, maintaining data integrity, planning end of life for data, and, yes, the inextricable bond between high-quality, highly vetted data and meaningful and accurate output from AI. Along the way, Lauren provided us with practical hands-on advice for governing data within your individual project or across your entire organization.

You can read the full interview with Lauren at https://forum.devtalk.com/t/spotlight-lauren-maffeo-author-interview-and-ama/95782. And while you're there, be sure to drop a question in the AMA. You'll get a personal answer back, and you'll also get a chance to win a free ebook copy of Designing Data Governance from the Ground Up.
