Managing Big Data has become a major competitive advantage for many organizations and hence maintaining a proper analytics platform is vital for an organization’s survival. The Global Big Data Conference (August 28-30, Santa Clara Convention Center) provides insights and potential solutions to address Big Data issues from well known experts and thought leaders through panel sessions and open Q&A sessions.
ODPi Director John Mertic will present as the featured speaker for the Big Data Track on the third and final day of the conference. Join the session as he presents, Metadata And The Rise Of Big Data Governance: Emerging Solutions From Active Open Source Initiatives (11:20 a.m., Room 212).
Good governance and data privacy have been a top-line concern for individuals and companies worldwide in 2018. John Mertic’s presentation will explore how forward-thinking enterprises face a double-edged challenge as they address data governance challenges — with increased reliance on real-time data to better serve their customers, along with new requirements and compliance regulations to protect and manage that data, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Mertic will present solutions to the evolving data challenge that are emerging from active open source initiatives. Learn the benefits of a vendor-neutral approach to data governance and the need for an open metadata standard. Address the topics of managing metadata, compliance, GDPR, data catalogs & governance–and how to become a data driven organization.
Mertic will also share how ING, IBM, Hortonworks, and other companies are delivering solutions to this challenge as an open source initiative with Egeria, a new project from ODPi that supports the free flow of metadata between different technologies and vendor offerings. Explore best practices and learn from real examples of how companies like ING are tackling the data governance challenge with metadata, a consistent view across a large heterogeneous ecosystem, and collaboration with an active open source community.
