Closing the Information Gap
Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics
Date: Thursday, January 13, 2022
Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
Today’s organizations are collecting more data than ever. TDWI research indicates that organizations are collecting hundreds of terabytes and even petabytes of data. This data is diverse, with both transaction and text data collection now mainstream and machine data collection growing. Organizations are increasingly moving to the cloud to manage this data with platforms such as cloud data warehouses and cloud data lakes in the early mainstream phase of adoption.
However, it is one thing to collect this diverse data and move it to the cloud; it is another to gain value from the data amidst complex environments with multiple data types, across multiple platforms, for use by different groups across the company such as data engineers, business analysts, and data scientists. The result of this complexity is often an “information gap”—the problem of lacking the data availability, understanding, and trust necessary to turn this data into useful insights, information, and knowledge.
Join this TDWI Webinar to learn more about the roots of the information gap and best practice considerations for moving forward to close the gap, including the need for a solid data infrastructure, new tools, new skills, and strong data governance.
Topics we will discuss include:
- How cloud-native data management can overcome data silos to improve an organization’s ability to provide all relevant data on a timely basis to data users
- Data transformation and sharing strategies for increasing the understanding, trust, and usage of data for optimizing its value
- The importance and potential impact of modern, easy-to-use tools for deploying and managing data pipelines and data governance
- Developing strategies to increase data skills throughout the organization and collaboration between IT and business
