Data may be the new oil, but every sword cuts both ways. Just as with any valuable asset, there are liabilities associated with data. The key to success in today’s world is to ensure that you have sound policies in place for managing data, especially personally identifiable information. That gets rather challenging for established organizations that have data in a variety of systems. Thanks to the rise of data catalogs, however, many companies are already turning the corner.
Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Eric Kavanagh explain why data catalogs hold tremendous promise for companies that need to shore up their data management policies. He’ll be joined by Awais Ahsan from Alation, who will demonstrate how their technology addresses the four major tenets of data management policy: advanced data discovery, data mapping and classification, embedded documentation, and enhanced governance through social curation.
