Live Webinar: The Well-Governed Data Lake
Live Webinar
Thursday, August 3, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT

Big data governance requires us to rethink governance from the ground up. Metadata, data quality, and data provisioning overall take on new importance as IT and governance teams build data lakes that are organized, secure, and business-ready.

Traditional governance practices that oversee and gate delivery of new data to business users are being replaced by new models that engage analytic and business experts sooner in enhancing data while also improving data quality and accelerating access. Data lake, IT, and data governance practitioners will learn the principles of big data governance:

  • What is the new paradigm that brings data governance to big data.
  • Metadata: Its essentialness to tracking the lifecycle of data ingestion, validation, preparation, and use.
  • How schemas from the start can further enrich metadata and automatically assess the quality, completeness, and content of raw data.
  • Scorecard-driven prioritization: Not all data needs strict governance.
  • How governance best practices ensure innovation resilience to your data ecosystem.
