Data governance is a charged topic for businesses of all sizes. For business users it is often seen as an “excuse” to say no, and for IT a fundamental part of protecting the organizations data assets. With the evolution of Hadoop from a cold store play to a robust enterprise data hub with a discovery layer, governance of all your data remains one to the biggest challenges to success. The discovery layer can be used as a way to bridge the gap between business and IT professionals, while still supporting the requirements around governance of data in your enterprise data hub
Join Tableau and Cloudera on May 1st to learn how to apply governance to the discovery layer in an enterprise data hub while still meeting the speed and agility requirements of the business user.
