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 – one example being the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

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.

This joint presentation, John Mertic – director of program management for ODPi – and Ferd Scheepers – Global Chief Information Architect of ING – will address the benefits of a vendor-neutral approach to data governance, the need for an open metadata standard, along with insight around how companies ING, IBM, Hortonworks and more are delivering solutions to this challenge as an open source initiative.
