Modernise Your Approach to Data: The Case for Cloud ELT

Modern businesses seeking a competitive advantage must harness their data to gain better business insights. When it comes to loading, transforming, and analysing data, the cloud changes everything. ELT is a fundamentally different approach to pre-processing data, in terms not only of architecture but philosophy as well. Today, as much data, from as many sources as possible, needs to be integrated into analyses. ELT leverages the power of the cloud and the data warehouse platform itself, to do data transformation at scale. Learn how moving from traditional ETL to cloud ELT can help you keep up with exploding data volumes, reduce coding and resource management efforts and help you become more data-driven.

Where’s the Data? Find Your Biggest Governance, Security, & Compliance Risks

Over the last decade, data has become the driving force behind businesses, economies, and daily life. But sometimes, something as simple as knowing what data you have, and where that data lives within (and outside of) your organization, can be your biggest governance, security and compliance risk. As stricter data laws are enacted across the globe and consumers exercise new privacy rights over their data, it’s more crucial than ever to find the best ways to find, manage, query, and action data. In this session, we’ll share tips on how to manage data in the organization, and how data discovery can help with compliance. • Understand how to know where data lives within and outside of your organization • Learn the security, governance, and compliance considerations for collecting, securing, and managing data • See how data discovery can help with broader data governance Speakers: Sam Gillespie, OneTrust Andy Steed, Big Data LDN Free registration: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/18160/447671
