The data landscape is broken. So much of an organization’s data is either undiscovered or useless because it has lost the context that gave it meaning. It’s time to rethink the way we manage the data that feeds our analytics and machine learning. Mandy Chessell explores the role that open source, embeddable, and interconnected metadata capability play in transforming the availability and understanding of the dark data that lurks throughout our organizations.

This keynote is sponsored by IBM.



Mandy Chessell is a master inventor, fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, and a distinguished engineer at IBM, where she is driving IBM’s strategic move to open metadata and governance through the Apache Atlas open source project. Mandy is a trusted advisor to executives from large organizations and works with them to develop strategy and architecture relating to the governance, integration, and management of information.

Hello Mandy,

currently, we are addressing the meta data management topic as part of the deployment of our data lake.
Therefore, would it be possible to get a copy of your slides that you presented during the keynote?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
