On June 11th– 15th, 2018 Debtech International will be hosting their annual DGIQ Conference. DGIQ is the world’s largest event dedicated entirely to data governance and information quality and we are excited to be there and show off some of our newest and greatest innovations for data governance and information quality!

The event will be hosted in sunny San Diego at the Catamaran Beach Resort, yes, a BEACH RESORT! How cool is that! I attended last year so I can give a couple of quick heads up and FIVE key reasons you should attend!
