Session Outline

Given today’s rapid pace of data creation and consumption, the new generation of Chief Data Officers need a single solution to view and monitor their data assets globally, across different sources and types of data. CDOs are responsible for automating the discovery of new assets, monitoring the quality of existing data, and remediating any issues. They’ve historically relied on manual methods and siloed tools to patchwork their data governance solutions. However, this is increasingly changing, as companies build enterprise data programs that leverage AI-powered data discovery to bring data assets together in one catalog. Advanced AI and machine learning techniques that automate data discovery and identification — plus manage petabytes of data at rest, in motion, and in use — powers the modern data governance solution: from data quality to data lineage and stewardship.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how to modernize manual data governance processes with AI/ML technologies.
  • Discover strategies utilized by enterprise data programs to comply with regulations and monetize their assets.
  • Hear use cases and benefits that rely on AI/ML data discovery techniques for finding and linking data together.
