Governance and data privacy have been top-line concerns in 2018, as use of data intensive applications continues to rise. The solution to the evolving data challenge is a tricky one, as regulatory challenges of data management present great "unknowns" of GDPR compliance. Explore the benefits of a vendor-neutral approach to data governance and the need for an open metadata standard.

Attendees will learn how to improve data management capabilities through an open and integrated ecosystem. Explore common standards and tools for managing metadata, compliance, GDPR, data catalogs & governance—with real examples of ING, IBM, Hortonworks, and other companies delivering solutions to this challenge as an open source initiative. Tackle the data governance challenge with metadata, a consistent view across a large heterogeneous ecosystem, and collaboration with ODPi’s active open source community.
