    Balancing Data Democratization and Data Privacy – Lessons Learned

    The increased focus on data privacy has been a double-edged sword for data management professionals. On one hand, privacy regulations have increased both awareness and funding for core data management capabilities: governance, metadata management, data quality, master data, etc. On the other hand, the data privacy regulatory landscape is constantly changing, ambiguous, and highly variable across jurisdictions. 

    At the same time, our business teams are requesting and generating unprecedented volumes and variety of data while requiring limitless access to data sets. Our challenge in the data management community is recognizing how this represents a unique opportunity to apply metadata management, governance, and data quality fundamentals to meet the often-competing requirements of democratization and data privacy. 

    This session will explore lessons learned in creating this balance and delivering business value using:

    • Business-focused data governance
    • Metadata management adoption strategies
    • Data quality and data profiling business benefits
    • Measuring, monitoring, and reporting business outcomes
    • Organizational change management opportunities
