It’s easier than ever to collect data, but managing it securely in compliance with regulations and legal constraints is harder. There are plenty of tools that promise to bring machine learning techniques to your data, but choosing the right tools and managing models and applications in compliance with regulation and law is quite difficult.

Mike Olson discusses the risks and the issues that matter most and explains how an enterprise data cloud that embraces your data center and the public cloud in combination can address them, delivering real business results for your organization.
