Recorded Webinar: The missing piece of the data governance puzzle

6 December 2016

This webinar has passed, but you can view the recording by registering here.

Effective data governance delivers data quality and controls across the enterprise, and ensures financial institutions can meet regulators’ demands for transparency and full audit trails.

But current approaches to data governance that rely on software and policies are ineffective without the right metadata flowing through them.

Join us on this webinar where we will discuss:

  • The benefits effective data governance can bring to the financial enterprise
  • Why software and policies alone are ineffective
  • What metadata is; how to source it and why it is essential to your data governance plans
  • How to deliver a full audit trail of data and demonstrate control for regulators
  • Best practices for achieving measurable results in data governance
