I have to say this course went beyond my expectations. I have been interested in the topic for a while and have been following Ruben's work for years.

Ruben has been tremendously helpful in assisting our company on a journey to data centricity, the advice to avoid third party data silos, has allowed us to build curated automations, visualisations & dashboards. Being that we are not restricted by third party data, we also have the freedom to evolve our internal KPI's as our business grows, instead of being locked into third party visualisations which may have lost relevance. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to make bold strides in the data-centricity direction.

As a consultant in a CIO advisory capacity I often get asked about business's willingness to embark on modernization strategy and even though most business leaders do not explicitly articulate their desire to be a "data centric" organization, what they actually describe is exactly that.
In Data Centric Executive course Ruben has provided a very good overview of what Data Centricity is and what it is not. He has provided a very good overview of technical and non-technical aspects to be considered when adopting the data centric strategy and has covered key factors business and IT leaders must keep in mind while embarking on their journey to become a data centric enterprise.
He makes a very convicting case that organizations should focus on managing the lifecycle of the precious data/information assets more than the technology that supports their operations.
This course is a must for the business and IT leaders who are not familiar with the Data Centricity to build good understanding of the topic and help assess their readiness to embark on journey to become a data centric organization.

In my role, I consult with many clients, helping them understand what the journey should look like to become a data-centric organisation. I have gained significant insights from my experience and by using various existing books in the market. However, taking this course provided me with different perspectives on key areas, which I found incredibly valuable, especially in relation to organisational change and how to measure progress.

Below is a Great article for business execs + IT execs by Ruben Sardaryan
PS - If you're a business exec, even a CEO at a global 1000 company, and you don't think this message is for you - think again. Being data-centric is very different from, and superior to, being application centric - and it takes both a mindset shift and a whole lot of different skills and tools and industry standards: starting with W3C and RDF.
As a former corporate planner, I highly suggest adding a few sections to each line of business (LOB) strategic plan to feed your needed ontologist, knowledge graph developers, and other IT staff. Start with defining the business and business terms as part of a shared enterprise glossary. When possible (which should be always) leverage industry terminology. For each glossary term, define its preferred name (aka: a prefLabel) and synonyms (aka: altLabel). This may sound too detailed for a CEO. However, in a data-centric organization things should be defined (only) once and defined well, as the data and the relationships between the data define the foundation of your company and, most importantly, defined in a way both humans and machines understand what you're talking about. This language (simple RDF triples) will facilitate enterprise data sharing, external ecosystem data sharing, NLP, machine learning and AI.
PS - Ruben Sardaryan has developed a fabulous course for business and IT professionals alike to get the basics (and more) on what it means to be data centric and why it matters a lot. We've had 50 years of application-centric thinking which has led to the mess most large companies are in today.

InfoCratic's Data Centric Executive Course
That's my guy!
I have been working along side Ruben Sardaryan at Semantium for over a year now and I am really proud of the professional quality, utility, and comprehensiveness of his course material.
Even if, as a C-Level executive, you are not particularly aware of or interested in the revolutionary concepts behind Data Centricity, but still trying find your way out from under the prohibitive cost and complexity of your current data environment, this course is packed with immediately useful - and perhaps more importantly #teachable - nuggets about data, information, culture, and yes, that 'driver of drag': technology.
After setting the proverbial table with 'Introductions' and the 'What', 'Why', and non-technical 'How', Section 5: "The Technical How" alone is well worth the price of admission. If your organization seeks clarity on data economics and practical explanations and tips on classification, modeling, and semantic interoperability in the best 60 Minutes since Dan Rather, you need to sign up.
You can join the course for less than it costs to buy a month's worth of coffee for your staff. Less than a day's worth of SAP consulting. Less than a week's rent in San Francisco.
Yeah, I am indeed biased, but if you are sick to death of going up and down Gartner's hype cycles while more and more of your IT budget goes to maintenance, training, and 'integrating' application-centric data, then go get this.
You'll thank me in a week.
