Beyond Observability: Autonomous Trustability of Data Lake and Pipeline

July 27, 2022

Watch the Webinar

Continuous testing is one of the four key pillars of DataOps. But with the enormous volume of data flowing through cloud and hybrid data lakes, how can data engineers keep up? The answer is automation.

A new generation of data observability tools leverage machine learning to autonomously validate data throughout the data pipelines. They instill trust in data by catching issues before they break downstream processes and connect to data catalogs to track data quality in real time. Join Eckerson Group Senior Analyst Joe Hilleary, CEO of FirstEigen Seth Rao, and Director of Product Marketing of Alation Ibby Rahmani as they explore the impact of these solutions.

Architecting an Effective Customer 360 Data Program

July 26, 2022

Watch the Webinar

A customer 360 data program can help by providing consistent views of customers—who they are, and what, why, and how they buy. It helps marketers and other business owners make sense of needs, influences, and behavior so they can generate insights, take action, and create opportunities.

This webinar assesses the evolving role of three architectural elements—the data warehouse, customer data platform, and cloud connectors—that together support a modern C360 data program. It tracks their evolving roles in these programs, with digital advertising as a case study, and recommends guiding principles to ensure all these elements interoperate to support successful customer engagement and analytics.

The Convergence of Data Management and Data Governance

June 28, 2022

Watch the Webinar

Managing data is complex. There are many dimensions of data that organizations need to manage to deliver business value at scale: quality, privacy, security, metadata, access, discovery, lineage, sharing, architecture, models, ML/AI, and so on. For each dimension, organizations need to establish policies, standards, and processes for governing data.

This webinar will examine the rationale and reality of this convergence and provide viewers with a real-life example of a converged data management and governance platform. By the end of the webinar, viewers will understand the value of a converged platform versus purchasing multiple tools to perform the same work.

CDO TechVent: Data Governance Platforms

April 26, 2022

Watch the Webinar

Data governance technology is converging. In the past, organizations purchased data governance functionality from different vendors. Today, organizations can obtain all the data governance capabilities they need from a single vendor.

There is now a race among vendors to offer comprehensive support for all data governance capabilities on a single platform. Emerging data governance platforms promise to support all data governance functions, from data catalogs and business glossaries to policy catalogs, workflow management, and data governance reporting.

In some cases, data governance platforms focus exclusively on data governance activities; in others, they merge data governance with data management and analytics functionality. In either case, the data governance platform sends policies, guidelines, standards, and tags to data management and analytics software and receive metadata in turn to support governance activity.
