This Girl is on Fire...

For the last two years the SAS DataFlux team has celebrated October 11th as "Data Stewards Day" and one of the most exciting parts of the "holiday" is that folks in the data management community can nominate their favorite Data Steward for the award called "Data Steward of the Year".

Last year's winner (Barb Deemer of Sallie Mae) was the first winner of the award and has really set the bar very high for not only what it takes to win the award but to bring significant value to an organization by ensuring her organization keeps their data in order.

The team at my shop (iJET) submitted our nominations for our colleague Falguni Sanghani by both submitting nominations directly and/or by sending them to me to include in a video. I cobbled the video together, submitted it as a nomination and have it here for you to take a peek at if you'd like.



...and then we waited to see what might happen...

This was one of the slides we included in the video, do you think it looks like Falguni?


Falguni and I are here Las Vegas for the SAS DataFlux IDEAS conference and yesterday morning the DataFlux team announced the winner and guess who won?



...FALGUNI SANGHANI...

Congratulations to all the nominees, the honorable mentions, and the finalists. The work you do is probably undervalued 364 days a year, but today is the day to take a step back and really be proud of the work you do for your organizations.

With all that said, I'm very proud to have Falguni on my team and no doubt, This Girl is on Fire...

Until next time...Rich
