In a few short years, the data lake has shifted from experiment to a critical component of the enterprise data architecture.

In order to be trusted, and useful, the data lake must:

  • Make it easy to find the data I need
  • Make it easy to understand the context of the data – i.e. track its origins and technical details (lineage)
  • Make it possible to assess the quality of the data
  • Allow me to find similar (or related) data sets to broaden my analytics potential, and to compare various data sets against each other to find the best possible set for my purpose
  • Govern access to data ( e.g. through data sharing agreements) to ensure that sensitive data sets are protected and to measure which data is useful
  • Recognise that the data lake is part of a broader data ecosystem and provide insights into how and where it fits in.

A governed data catalogue helps to solve these problems.

On Thursday. 26 April, we will explore How data catalogues drive real results with business intelligence and analytics.

On Tuesday, 15 May, the webinar will explore the value of a data catalogue in socializing data across the enterprise, and in delivering healthy data processes and a data culture.
