Alan D. Duncan is Director of Data Governance at University of New South Wales, Australia. An evangelist for information and analytics as enablers of better business outcomes, he was named by Information-Management.com in their 2012 list of “Top 12 Data Governance gurus you should be following on Twitter”.
