Streamline Data Governance with Egeria: The Industry’s First Open Metadata Standard

Streamline Data Governance with Egeria: The Industry's First Open Metadata Standard

Wednesday, March 20
2:50 PM - 3:30 PM
Room 127-128

Learn about the industry's new open metadata standard Egeria, introduced in September by ODPi, The Linux Foundation’s Open Data Platform initiative. Egeria supports the free flow of standardized metadata between different technologies and vendor platforms, enabling organizations to locate, manage and use their data resources more effectively. Explore how Egeria's set of open APIs, types and interchange protocols to allow all metadata repositories to share and exchange metadata. From this common base, it adds governance, discovery and access frameworks for automating the collection, management and use of metadata across an enterprise. The result is an enterprise catalog of data resources that are transparently assessed, governed and used in order to deliver maximum value to the enterprise.

This presentation by ODPi Director John Mertic provides an introduction to Egeria, and explores how the standard provides a vendor-neutral approach to data governance. Learn how a group of companies led by ING, IBM and Hortonworks came together through the open source community to re-imagining data governance and delivered Egeria -- to automate the collection, management and use of metadata across organizations of any size and complexity. Learn how Egeria was built on open standards and delivered via Apache 2.0 open source license.
