CDO Vision Webinar Series

About the Webinar

Many CDOs and Data Scientists came into being as part of a Big Data program. In many shops Big Data is the core driver for better Data Governance (DG) and Data Management (DM), and the sole evidence of the value of DM and DG. Big Data is also leaving the “hype cycle” and becoming embedded as part of the DM tool kit.    

This webinar will review what is working and what is not working in the Big Data realm. John and Kelle will not only address the technology progress, but also the organizational and management lessons learned, and will present what works and what does not.  

In this webinar we will cover:

  • The state of Hadoop, MapReduce and the other “old” big data technologies

  • New technologies and approaches

  • An overview of organization and management of big data functions
