Metadata and the Rise of Big Data Governance: Emerging Solutions from Active Open Source Initiatives

Abstract :

Good governance and data privacy have been a top-line concern for individuals and companies worldwide in 2018. Individuals are concerned with how data about themselves is used in digital services, such as websites, and mobile apps while companies face pressures and regulations to ensure they don't misuse or misrepresent the data they are collecting. Forward-thinking enterprises face a double-edged challenge as they address data governance challenges -- they face increased reliance on real-time data to better serve their customers, along with new requirements and compliance regulations to protect and manage that data, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The solution to the evolving data challenge is a tricky one. Explore the benefits of a vendor-neutral approach to data governance, as well as the need for an open metadata standard. Learn more about managing metadata, compliance, GDPR, data catalogs & governance – and 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 learn from real examples of how companies like ING are tackling the data governance challenge with metadata, a consistent view across a large heterogeneous ecosystem, and collaboration with an active open source community. Bio: John Mertic is Director of Program Management for ODPi, R Consortium and Open Mainframe Project at The Linux Foundation. Previously, Mertic was director of business development software alliances at Bitnami. Mertic comes from a PHP and Open Source background, being a developer, evangelist, and partnership leader at SugarCRM, board member at OW2, president of OpenSocial, and frequent conference speaker around the world. As an avid writer, Mertic has published articles on IBM Developerworks, Apple Developer Connection, and PHP Architect, and authored the book The Definitive Guide to SugarCRM: Better Business Applications and the book Building on SugarCRM.
