This session will include a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the live audience.
Many companies are modernizing and improving their data management capabilities, but most do so with an eye on current needs rather than considering what data management will look like in five to ten years. This is a severe oversight because the key to unlocking data management advances depends on the foundations you’re building now. One of the critical development areas to plan for is called active metadata. Although metadata is not new, unleashing its new forms will improve the treasure trove of data necessary to build performant AI and ML models for better and faster data management functions. Further, the ability to embed and activate metadata into applications will support user workflows and business processes. Like the cobbler’s children finally getting their shoes, AI and ML are getting ready to transform data management.
In this session, John O’Brien will discuss:
- How metadata has evolved and finally transitioned to a priority to deliver business value
- What constitutes active metadata, and how to start utilizing it today
- How data catalogs and DataOps intertwine with active metadata
- The importance of a data fabric strategy to guide your efforts in the coming years
