Webinar Speaker: David Stodder, Senior Director of Research for BI, TDWI
Date: Thursday, January 12, 2023
Time: 12:00 p.m. PT, 3:00 p.m. ET
A thriving data culture is essential to maximizing the value of analytics for day-to-day decisions and operations. Building a collaborative data culture is successful when people across the organization are able to exercise data curiosity based on trusted sources. People can develop timely data insights that improve customer engagement, increase operational efficiency, and drive product and service innovation. Data scientists locate and access data when they need it to build predictive models and deploy machine learning algorithms that uncover patterns and solve critical business questions.
However, challenges arise as data grows in volume, speed, and variety. Democratized users want self-service. Many organizations are migrating data to the cloud, which delivers benefits but also distributes valuable data across a hybrid of on-premises and cloud-based systems. Without shared resources such as a data lakehouse, a data catalog, and AI-driven data intelligence, it becomes exceedingly difficult to manage, locate, and share data. Business users and data scientists spend too much time navigating data, leaving little for more value-producing activities.
Join this TDWI Webinar to learn how shared data resources make a thriving data culture possible. Speakers will discuss the emergence of AI-infused data intelligence centered on a unified, enterprise data catalog that enables users to search for and understand trusted and governed data across all domains.
Topics to be covered include:
- Best practices for developing and growing a data culture
- Using an enterprise data catalog for data visibility and faster querying across multiple domains and hybrid multicloud environments
- Improving data collaboration among self-service users based on shared data intelligence
- The value of unifying data governance for all data, analytics, and AI assets
- Modernizing data management and governance, including to meet audit and compliance requirements
