Level:  Introductory

Data stewardship operationalizes the work of data governance. This means not only enforcing data policies, but also driving the business value of data.

How can you make sure data policies are actually being followed by end-users? Tie your stewardship initiative to tooling that provides just-in-time interventions at the point of analysis. Doing so will not only ensure enforcement but also empower your analysts to get more accurate results more quickly.

Attend this session to see how companies from eBay to Safeway are:

  • Leveraging just-in-time interventions to increase both adherence to policy and the productivity of their analysts
  • Empowering their data stewards to be chief problem solvers beyond just policy enforcers
  • Using an automated data catalog to prioritize which information assets should be governed first and moreā€¦
