September 2018 Newsletter

Here are highlights from our latest issue:

  • Defining Data Acquisition and Why It Matters – As data drives more and more of the modern economy, data governance and data management are racing to keep up with an ever-expanding range of requirements, constraints and opportunities. It’s a little like a data version of the Cambrian Explosion, where data-centricity is giving rise to a rich variety of practices, each distinct and unique in its own way. Our head of Innovation Malcolm Chisholm shares his views on how to define data acquisition — and why it’s gaining critical importance.
  • We’ve Partnered with Alation to Modernize Data Governance with Data Catalogs – Earlier this month, we announced a new partnership with Alation, the data catalog company, to deliver new field-tested methodologies and approaches for incorporating data cataloging into holistic data governance practices. Our strategic alliance focuses on enabling confident and compliant data-driven decision-making, adapted to the needs of self-service analytics environments.
