Technology provider Buchanan & Edwards Inc. has been awarded a new contract with the U.S. Air Force Office of the Chief Data Officer. The contract focuses on providing public sector data governance training and certification services to USAF data stewards nationwide.
Through its wholly owned subsidiary R2C, Buchanan & Edwards has partnered with the Institute for the Certification of Computing Professionals to offer the only data governance training and certification specifically tailored for the needs of public sector organizations.
“It is an honor to be able to support the USAF with training that will further enhance its ability to treat its data as the critical organizational asset it is,” said Buchanan & Edwards CEO Eric Olson. “We are looking forward to a long-term relationship that will benefit the USAF CDO, her dedicated staff, and all of the USAF.”
The USAF Data Governance Training effort intends to prepare the entire cadre of USAF data stewards to sit for the ICCP Public Sector Data Governance Professional certification, demonstrating a consistent standard of knowledge, skills and abilities for USAF data professionals.
“Through this ambitious training and certification effort, USAF CDO Eileen Vidrine is advancing the data governance maturity of her organization in a deliberate manner,” said Buchanan & Edwards Data Governance Lead Kathy Rondon. “We are excited to be part of her efforts to accelerate her data governance program.”
