The Rise of Big Data Governance: Strata Data Conference and DataWorks Summit Sessions, Webinar, RedGuide and More!

By March 6, 2018Blog

Each of today’s most forward-thinking enterprises have been forced to face similar data challenges: the reliance on real-time data to better serve their customers and, subsequently, the requirement of complying with regulations to protect that data, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

ODPi Data Governance PMC is working to create a neutral, industry-wide approach to data governance. Together, they are supporting the mission of creating an open data ecosystem through collaboration with subject matter experts and data platform and tools vendors.

Below please find upcoming speaking sessions, Meetups, webinars and a RedGuide meant to further the discussion and work of Data Governance.

John Mertic and Maryna Strelchuk detail the benefits of a vendor-neutral approach to data governance, explain the need for an open metadata standard, and share how companies like ING, IBM, Hortonworks, and more are delivering solutions to this challenge as an open source initiative. The solution to this emerging challenge is a tricky one. For companies like ING, this data governance challenge has been met with metadata, a consistent view across a large heterogeneous ecosystem, and collaboration with an active open source community.

The Journey Continues: From Data Lake to Data-Driven Organization

Written by Mandy Chessell (IBM), Ferd Scheepers (ING), Maryna Strelchuk (ING), Ron van der Starre (IBM), Seth Dobrin (IBM), and Daniel Hernandez (IBM)

This IBM Redguide™ publication looks back on the key decisions that made the data lake successful and looks forward to the future. It proposes that the metadata management and governance approaches developed for the data lake can be adopted more broadly to increase the value that an organization gets from its data. Delivering this broader vision, however, requires a new generation of data catalogs and governance tools built on open standards that are adopted by a multi-vendor ecosystem of data platforms and tools.

Work is already underway to define and deliver this capability, and there are multiple ways to engage. This guide covers the reasons why this new capability is critical for modern businesses and how you can get value from it.
