Organizations are faced with an increasingly complex data landscape, finding themselves unable to cope with exponentially increasing data volumes, compounded by additional regulatory requirements with increased fines for non-compliance. Enterprise architecture and data governance are often discussed at length, but often with different stakeholder audiences. This can result in complementary and sometimes conflicting initiatives rather than a focused, integrated approach. Data governance requires a solid data architecture foundation in order to support the pillars of enterprise architecture. In this session, IDERA’s Ron Huizenga will discuss a practical, integrated approach to effectively understand, define and implement an cohesive enterprise architecture and data governance discipline with integrated modeling and metadata management.
