Data onboarding is the critical first step for successfully migrating to a data lake in the cloud. If you do it wrong, you’ll end up with a data swamp.
Cloud migration and modernization is appealing to the CIO and the CDO, but it is critical to recognize that executing this type of digital transformation requires attention to many discrete details at the operational level. Although there are many challenges that need to be addressed for cloud migration—such as how to migrate the data, application continuity, data dependencies, and the proliferation of data source types—all of these can be simplified with a comprehensive data onboarding framework.
To build an effective data onboarding framework, data professionals must consider best practices for managing cloud information flows that encompass the full life cycle of data ingestion, synchronization, pipeline orchestration, and governance. In this webinar, we discuss five ways to simplify the process of cloud data migration and modernization with a managed approach to data onboarding.
Attendees will learn about:
- Planning for data onboarding
- Enabling data discovery through data crawling and cataloging
- Engaging data owners about their responsibilities for data usability
- Leveraging machine intelligence to automate data ingestion
- Understanding and automating data synchronization
