Data Catalogs: Governing & Provisioning Data in a Data Driven Enterprise - - Avega Group AB

This 1-day course looks in detail at what a data catalog is and what the main reasons are for needing one. In particular, we will look at the challenge companies are dealing with respect to data complexity and the need to implement both an enterprise data governance program and provide technologies to help people find, engineer, provision and consume ‘business ready’ data for both analytical and operational use cases.

Why attend

You will learn:

  • How data catalogs work and what their capabilities are?

This includes automatic discovery and classification of sensitive data, governance of data access security, data privacy, data loss prevention, data sharing, data usage, data retention, and data quality?
  • How to use data catalogs to discover data they can engineer in data integration pipelines to produce data products that can be published in a data marketplace?
