Expert Panel: The Importance of Governance in Data Modernization
Webinar Speaker: David Stodder, Senior Director of Research for BI, TDWI
Date: Tuesday, May 17, 2022
Time: 12:00 p.m. PT, 3:00 p.m. ET
Data modernization, especially through cloud migration, is critical to realizing value from today’s fast, diverse, and high-volume data. Modernization is about overhauling legacy data management and practices that hold organizations back from achieving business goals, improving resilience, and reducing risk. However, often overlooked in the rush to develop new applications and migrate data is modernizing data governance. Poor attention to data governance will bake problems into overall modernization efforts that become hard to correct, increase risks, and ultimately reduce the value of data.
Join this TDWI Expert panel discussion to learn how your organization can make governance one of the core pillars of data modernization. We will discuss the top priority for most organizations: setting rules and policies for how users access and share data so they follow relevant data privacy regulations and industry practices. However, most governance initiatives also focus on improving users’ trust in data and analytics through better data quality, consistency, location, and data lineage. We will discuss how to handle data trust challenges that commonly arise with data democratization and in hybrid environments including both cloud-native and on-premises data management.
Topics to be covered include:
- Best practices for addressing governance issues during data modernization
- Technology trends such as AI-driven automation and data catalogs for handling governance challenges
- How to balance governance with users’ self-service priorities
- Addressing governance in training and data literacy programs
