Level:  Intermediate

We've been working with a number of major companies who have been responding to an increasing tide of regulation (notably the Basel-related requirements in the Banking sector). The projects have shown some interesting differences from traditional metadata-based projects and traditional IT and Data Governance projects. This presentation will draw on the "real-life" experiences to show how the Governance landscape is changing and contrast productive/successful approaches and less productive/less successful efforts.

During this session we will discuss:

  • How the scope of information management is changing, and how business and technical perspectives of data are being incorporated into governance systems
  • How the tooling for governance is changing
  • What is the core set of capabilities for IT and Data Governance
  • How Big Data is playing into the governance challenges

As Vice President of Product Marketing, Ian Rowlands is responsible for the communication of ASG's metadata-management based solutions.
