Good governance and data privacy have been a top-line concern for individuals and companies worldwide in 2018. Enterprises increasingly rely on real-time data to better serve customers, yet must comply with new requirements and regulations to protect and manage that data, such as GDPR.

The evolving data challenge is a tricky one to solve. Explore the benefits of a vendor-neutral approach to data governance and the need for an open metadata standard. Learn more about how to become a data-driven organization. 

John Mertic, Director of ODPi, will share how ING, IBM, Hortonworks, and other companies are delivering solutions to this challenge as an open source initiative. Explore best practices and hear real examples of how companies like ING are tackling data governance with metadata, a consistent view across a large heterogeneous ecosystem, and collaboration with an active open source community.
