If information is the new oil, then governance is its “safety data sheet.” As demand for data as the raw material for competitive differentiation continues to rise in enterprises, enterprises are having bigger challenges identifying and valuing data and ensuring its appropriate use to extract the right information. In order for organizations to make effective business decisions, organizations need to have trust in their data so that they can impute the right value and use it for the right purposes while satisfying any organizational or regulatory mandates. A number of analytics and data science initiatives fail to reach their potential due to lack of an information governance framework in place. Robust information governance capabilities can help organizations develop trust in their data and empower them to make decisions confidently.
In this session Sanjeev Mohan, Research Analyst at Gartner, and Srikanth Venkat, Sr. Director of Product Management at Hortonworks, will walk you through an end-to-end architectural blueprint for information governance and best practices for helping organizations understand, secure, and govern diverse types of data in enterprise data lakes.
