Who is this presentation for?

  • Any user supported in their role by metadata; CDOs, data scientists, developers, DevOps operators, and asset owners




An organization’s data and analytics landscape often looks like an archipelago of individual data and metadata catalogs. Some of the islands are linked by precariously maintained bridges of often unidirectional nature; others exist in splendid isolation. Business and technical users alike suffer from reduced understanding and management of their data, hampering insight and business value. Enterprise-wide metadata exchange and governance is an unattainable utopia.

Wim Stoop and Srikanth Venkat explore using ODPi’s Egeria for open sharing, exchange, and governance of metadata. With a common and open metadata standard, organizations can better understand, manage, and gain value from their data. After a brief introduction to the standard and capabilities it offers, you’ll dive into the use and support between Cloudera, partners, and customers. With Egeria, organizations can finally establish true enterprise-wide data and metadata security and governance.

What you'll learn

  • Understand the challenges surrounding enterprise-wide data and metadata governance and security
  • Learn how ODPi’s Egeria open metadata standard and framework addresses these challenges and how Cloudera, partners, and customers already leverage the standard to gain more insight and value from their data
