Webinar - From Big Data to Action: How to break out of the silo and leverage Data Governance for you

When:  Nov 5, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)
Every week we hear of new tools, data platforms and opportunities for organizations to embrace advanced digital technologies such as artificial intelligence. Yet despite investment and the focus of smart people, few organizations succeed in making wide and systematic use of their data. Today's IT is at the heart of the problem. Many tools and data platforms recognize the value of metadata, but manage it in a siloed, proprietary way that assumes they are the only technology employed by the organization. ODPi Egeria is an open source project dedicated to making metadata open and automatically exchanged between tools and data platforms, no matter which vendor they come from. In this talk we will cover: How the ODPi Egeria technology works. Which vendors that are adopting it in their products. How to incorporate this technology in your data strategy and governance program. Illustrations of the new capabilities open metadata and governance standards and technology can enable in your organization.
