Presentation Topics

Topic 1 (8:35 AM- 10:00 AM): Data Governance Modernization in the day of Data Fabric and Data Mesh

Presenter: Dr. Jim Barker

Today there is much discussion around data governance modernization, data fabric and data mesh.  Quite honestly, there is little discussion to integrate the needs of data governance in these concepts, but there should be.  In this session we are going to discuss how data governance is changing in relation to using catalogs, lineage, data quality, and a more robust framework of human-involved continuous improvement.  We will expand those ideas and share how they can be used in concert with strategic initiatives around data fabric and data mesh.

Topic 2 (10:20 AM- 11:45 AM): Demystifying the Journey to Enabling Analytics in the Cloud

Presenter: Jeroen Tetteroo and Walt Lillyman

Like many IT functions, data analytics is moving to the cloud. But is your organization ready? Going to the cloud is a necessary step that allows you to scale data, users, use cases, and capabilities around machine learning and data science. But it doesn’t come without its challenges. Deployment delays, maintenance and upgrade issues, adoption resistance, and more can end up hurting your businesses’ ability to keep up pace against competition. Hear from leading enterprise organizations on how they’re demystifying the journey of taking their data analytics to the cloud and competing successfully in today’s digital economy.

Whether you’re a business or technology professional, get the performance, flexibility, and near-infinite scalability to easily load, integrate, analyze, and securely share your data.

Combining all your data in a traditional data warehouse is an anti-pattern, which requires a lot of ETLs on a rigid platform that mainly supports structured data geared toward mission-critical reporting and BI use cases. To leverage ML and AI effectively and be a better, more data-driven organization, you need a unified repository that supports large and diverse data sets, including semi-structured and unstructured, in an open format with enterprise-grade reliability and performance. Welcome to lakehouse, a new architecture that combines the best elements of data lakes and data warehouses. This packaged offering from Databricks will accelerate implementing one simplified platform for data analytics, data science and ML — setting the foundation for your lakehouse vision.
