Embarcadero Industry Innovation Session
"Take Control of your Data Governance" Mark Barringer Embarcadero Technologies

Organisations face continued significant growth in complexity, diversity and volume of enterprise data with more and more companies worldwide understanding that data governance offers the only strategic solution to this challenge. Enterprises drowning in data and disconnected from trusted data repositories need to break out of organisational silos and re-establish adequate coordination and controls. Metadata Governance & Syndication technology enables collaborative content development and effective access to your Enterprise Information Map, the authoritative guide to an organisation's information assets. By providing greater insight into the location, meaning and proper use of enterprise data, organisations can improve corporate data compliance and utilisation. Business users can now locate, interpret, and accurately utilise data as an enterprise asset thereby adding real value to the business.
