It’s halfway through 2018 and time once again to post the Top 20 pieces of content published and consumed by you, the community, within the last year. What are people reading, sharing, and discussing?

So, what’s happening on the list?

Machine Learning continues to hover towards the top and makes a couple of appearances. No surprise Data Governance likewise shows up multiple times. Everyone from the DBA to the Analyst to the CDO / CIO / CTO is looking for better Data Governance practices. And for the first time, in walks Blockchain entering the Top 20 at number 14.
