2:30 PM Data as an Asset: Enterprise Data Governance & Metadata Management

The move toward utilizing prescriptive analytics and unlocking data and machine learning across the enterprise necessitates that organizations break up their black boxes and silos of data in order to incorporate enterprise data management as a critical component of their data governance strategy. A greater emphasis on the federation and enrichment of both structured and unstructured data brings great challenges to CDAO’s. It’s not an easy solve, but the principles and patterns are emerging as to how to SAFELY do it. At this point, CDAOs must spearhead a focus on establishing well-defined data governance strategies and frameworks that can scale to where the data is at all times without slowing down the commercial application of the data . This session will provide an agnostic framework and approach to data governance enabling both the business and engineering organizations alike to take an active role in creating data insights from consistent and trusted data sources. This approach provides a framework for CDAO’s to then better scale for the challenges of MDM, Data Quality, GDPR, CCPA, and others whereby the proliferation of data necessitates new responses than big black box deployments.
