    Implementing a formal Data management function in a company is always a challenge. It requires principles, policies, good practices, and good data governance. Data management may not always be perceived as high in business value. 

    An essential component of data management resides in structured processes and the meta-data that these processes generate.  IT projects may not always be willing to spend resources on this type of work. 

    Alba Salazar will discuss an approach based on her experience working in a data provisioning service for Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.


    Alba Salazar is a Data Analyst for Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL). She received her accreditation as a Certified Data Management Professional Associate and Practitioner in 2021 and is a certified Project Manager. She has worked for more than 15 years for CNRL in Canada.

    Alba is passionate about data management. She received her BSc. in Systems and Computing Science from Los Andes University in Bogota, Colombia, in 1982. Since then, Alba worked over three decades in various roles (e.g., Data Architect, IT Consultant, Project Manager, and Business Analyst) for multiple companies in Colombia, giving her a wealth of experience in data management within various industries.
