Big Data Governance – Friend or Foe
It’s January 24th, 1848 and James Marshall just discovered gold in California. The rush is on! America has found gold and 145,000 new people rushed to San Francisco to become rich gold miners. Some were successful – others not so much. Cave-ins created more widows in the first 5 years of the gold rush than millionaires. Cave-ins happen when you dig fast and hard and keep your eyes only on the gold further down. When you loose sight of the safety nets needed to keep the walls from crashing in on you, you get buried in the ground next to your gold.
It’s 2013 and, once again, America has struck gold. Only this time we call it Big Data! And like 1048 San Francisco, we’re all rushing in to claim our share. But, like our gold-hungry predecessors, we face risks. Our cave-ins will come in the form of compliance failures. We work to drive toward the value of big data. We sling technology around like drills and dynamite from 1848. We avoid putting up safeties and protections whenever we can – we don’t have time for them, right?
In this seminar, I will introduce the few of you still not sure what Big Data is. We will discuss how Data Governance can help you drill faster and more effectively and then we’ll close out with a brief discussion of compliance and what you should be thinking about as you build your Big Data Program.
We’ve got breakfast covered with coffee and bagels.
