Recorded Webinar: Best practices for data lineage and metadata management to support evolving data operations

20 October 2022

Data lineage is key to tracking data from source to consumption and any changes to the data along the way. Metadata management provides governance and control, ensuring high quality, consistent and accurate data across a financial institution. It can be used at all levels of an organisation from the C-suite to data stewards, analysts and developers, and is fundamental to supporting evolving data operations. It is also essential to making business decisions based on correct data.

This webinar will consider the facets of data lineage and metadata management, how they fit together, best practice approaches to implementation, and how these solutions can be used to optimise data operations. It will also touch on technologies underpinning lineage and metadata management, and discuss the operational and business outcomes of successful and sustainable implementations.

Register for the webinar to find out more about:

  • Progress on data lineage and metadata management
  • Approaches to best practice implementation
  • Inherent data and data management challenges
  • Guidance on how to achieve optimal data operations
  • Resulting operational and business benefits
