What we're about

ODSC brings together the open source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.
The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision makers from data centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open source tools

Webinar: "Making the Business Case for Automated Data Governance"

To access this webinar, please register here: https://hubs.li/Q0124NtZ0

Topic: Making the Business Case for Automated Data Governance

Speaker: Ashwin Nayak, Vice President of Engineering at Zaloni
https://www.linkedin.com/in/nayakashwini/

With prior senior roles at Hewlett Packard, CSG International and Quaero, Ashwin Nayak brings to Zaloni more than 15 years of experience building software-as-a-service (SaaS) analytics platforms to democratize data and solve the most complex data problems. Most recently, Nayak served as Vice President, Product Engineering at Quaero, where he was responsible for product strategy, engineering design, and execution of the customer data platform (CDP).

Abstract:
Data Governance is a critical component to ensuring a company is compliant with privacy laws and regulations alongside providing their data citizens with secure self-service access to trusted and quality data. Often, data governance processes are not automated, creating a challenge for data environments to scale as data increases.

Whether companies know it or not, there is a growing need to automate data governance processes. Though it is easier said than done, beginning to implement such automation is a real challenge for companies as they are unsure how to measure the performance benchmark of their current governance practices or how to improve governance already in place.

Zaloni’s Vice President of Engineering, Ashwin Nayak, explores the best practices along with his firsthand experience on how companies can and why they should begin to automate governance at scale through modern technologies and machine learning. Ashwin dives into the importance of a data platform as it offers the technologies and tools necessary to establish machine learning automation for all data governance processes. With governance automated, organizations can scale through secure self-service access to trusted, clean data that drives data-driven decisions and accelerates analytics, and measure effectiveness of data governance program.

After watching this presentation, audience members should be able to answer the following:

- How and when governance should fit into data platform initiatives and the overall digital transformation journey of the company.

- Know what metrics an organization should care about when it comes to governance.

- What the role of governance is within an organization based on data privacy, policy, and compliance.
