Significant changes are afoot in data warehouse environments (DWEs). This is because organizations are evolving their DWEs so they can leverage big data for business value, practice advanced forms of analytics for new insights, scale up to larger user communities, enable self-service data exploration, and operate the business more competitively based on real-time and near-real-time data. These changes and others involve adjustments to how data is accessed and used by users, applications, and data platforms. Hence, there are numerous issues to be considered for data governance, data stewardship, and the enhancement of users’ confidence in the new forms of data they are now embracing.
This TDWI Webinar looks at many of the data integration, data governance, compliance, security, and privacy issues that organizations must respect as they evolve their DWEs and related practices.
You will learn:
- What constitutes a modern data warehouse environment, and why modern DW architectures present new challenges to data integration and governance
- Why data integration and governance are important for data-driven business initiatives, such as compliance, business intelligence, analytics, and the management of big data
- Why data integration and governance should intersect with and unite most data management practices, including data quality, warehousing, metadata, analytics, etc.
