Combining trusted data on premises and in the cloud

Thursday, December 13 at 8 a.m. PT | 11 a.m. ET

Data lakes, IoT initiatives, self-service analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are all moving into the cloud. But with mounting privacy concerns and compliance requirements, even the most advanced organizations are choosing to retain certain data on premises. How can you satisfy the demand to improve self-service by moving more data to the cloud while ensuring you have quality, trusted data? It will take a governed, hybrid data lake approach.

Join Doug Henschen and Felix Van de Maele for a discussion about the key requirements for supporting data lakes that span data on premises and in the cloud. We’ll share what critical capabilities you need, why access to trusted data is key, and how the right solution can increase the business value of your data.

“Providing access to data is just the first step. Mature organizations recognize that data is only as valuable as it is trusted.”
