Presentation Description

Data scientists are tasked with analyzing and interpret complex data in order to make effective and profitable decisions. Without data governance, the data that the data scientist is using will be misunderstood, inaccurate, and lead to incorrect decisions.

Data governance defines the people, processes, framework and organization necessary to ensure that an organization’s information assets are formally, properly, proactively, and efficiently managed throughout the enterprise to secure its trust, accountability, meaning, and accuracy. In this keynote address attendees will:

  1. Data Governance’s Role in Data Science
  2. Understanding How to Convert Data into Information
  3. Data Governance Best Practices
  4. Data Governance Framework Walkthrough
  5. A Data Scientist’s Role in Data Governance
