Metadata Management for the Governance Minded

DATAVERSITY

Do you have data governance on your mind? Do you envision an environment where people are held formally accountable for the data they define, produce and use? Does metadata play a big role in that governed environment? Of course, it does. To manage any “thing” requires that you have quality information about that thing. Join Bob Seiner, of KIK Consulting and TDAN.com, with Gal Alon, Senior Director of Business Development for an industry leading metadata management automation software provider Octopai, as they discuss the who’s, what’s, why’s and how’s of automating and leveraging your metadata environment to successfully govern your organization’s data. Bob and Gal will spend the hour chatting about the role metadata management plays in data governance as well as discuss specific use cases to improve probability of Data Governance success.

Enabling the Third Wave of Analytics: Embedded BI Takes Center Stage

GoodData

Today’s data-savvy companies actively seek ways to enhance their approach to analytics and evolve out of the past. While the first wave of BI involved static, rigid, IT-owned systems, and the second expanded the capabilities to a more business-facing analyst set, the third wave aims to infuse analytical activity into multiple layers of non-technical business roles. As a key strategy to enable this third wave, companies today are exploring an embedded approach that places analytical activity directly in the context of everyday user applications, and the independent software vendors (ISVs) and enterprises providing those applications have taken notice of this trend. Done efficiently, embedded analytics promotes faster deployment and pervasive usage of analytics for end-users while delivering a competitive advantage and the opportunity for new revenue streams for software vendors and enterprises.

Applying Governance to Business Processes

dataversity

The most effective way to formally govern business processes is to apply governance to the process rather than redefine the entire process. This is one of the core tenets to Non-Invasive Data Governance and it assumes that your business processes are defined in the first place. In this month’s RWDG webinar, Bob Seiner will address how to apply formal Data Governance to existing processes and how to engage governance communities when defining new business processes. There is a distinct advantage to taking the Non-Invasive Approach to apply governance to business processes and Bob will detail this advantage during this month’s webinar.

TiVo: How to Scale New Products with a Data Lake on AWS and Qubole

Amazon Web Services

Big data technologies can be both complex and involve time consuming manual processes. Organizations that intelligently automate big data operations lower their costs, make their teams more productive, scale more efficiently, and reduce the risk of failure. In our webinar, representatives from TiVo, creator of a digital recording platform for television content, will explain how they implemented a new big data and analytics platform that dynamically scales in response to changing demand. You’ll learn how the solution enables TiVo to easily orchestrate big data clusters using Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2) and Amazon EC2 Spot instances that read data from a data lake on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and how this reduces the development cost and effort needed to support its network and advertiser users. TiVo will share lessons learned and best practices for quickly and affordably ingesting, processing, and making available for analysis terabytes of streaming and batch viewership data from millions of households.
