Your One Stop Guide for Upcoming Data Governance Research Opportunities
Last month we held a user conference in New York City titled the Informatica MDM 360 Summit. At the event we had keynotes from the Informatica executive team, the product leadership team, and some amazing customers. In addition, there were three tracks held in the afternoon to align with common industry initiatives. One track was solely dedicated to data governance.
During the data governance track we had many excellent customer speakers discuss their challenges and success stories alongside of industry thought leaders. Customer speakers included PwC, EMC, Health First, and UPMC. Also, industry thought leaders came from our own organization as well as Infoverity and HighPoint Solutions.
While you may not have had the opportunity to attend, there are many opportunities coming up to learn more about data governance. Below, I’ve outlined some upcoming events and resources that are available to you to utilize:
