The exponential growth of Big Data and Analytics has outpaced the ability of organizations to govern their data appropriately. The ability to reuse the work done by data scientists work is becoming an economic necessity. The mix of data sources is changing from tradition transactional and ERP systems to include a mix of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data. Data Governance needs to adapt to these changes.

This session discusses these data changes and proposes how to adapt current data governance processes. These include how the concept of a stakeholder has changed and the need for expansion of communications and content management. We look at need to consolidate data from disparate systems and how it governed. Lastly we will investigate how context is emerging as an important factor in governance and how it can be leveraged to provide for accurate, reliable data reuse.

The session will focus on:

  • Why big data changes the governance game?
  • Principles what stays the same, what changes?
  • Developing governance structures that capture metadata and stimulates reuse
  • Principles our governance in the world of the data virtualization
  • Adapting and transforming your governance organization to take on new challenges
