Presented by Embarcadero Technologies and Informed Decisions
Organisations face continued significant growth in complexity, diversity and volume of enterprise data with more and more companies worldwide understanding that data governance offers the only strategic solution to this challenge. Enterprises drowning in data and disconnected from trusted data repositories need to break out of organisational silos and re-establish adequate coordination and controls. Metadata Modelling, Governance & Syndication technology enables collaborative content development and effective access to your Enterprise Information Map, the authoritative guide to an organisation’s information assets. By providing greater insight into the location, meaning and proper use of enterprise data, organisations can improve corporate data compliance and utilisation. Business users can now locate, interpret, and accurately utilise data as an enterprise asset thereby adding real value to the business. This workshop explores these issues and provides a pragmatic approach to resolve modern data architecture challenges.

Julian Clemas-Howard: Betfair
Julian has nearly 20 years of Data Architecture and Management experience providing his services to most of the UK’s Mobile Telecommunications companies as well as organisations in the Insurance and Utilities sectors. He was part of the team that bought Virgin Mobile to the market as the first MVNO in the UK; it was here that he developed his passion for Data Warehousing and where he developed his first Enterprise Logical Data Model. He considers himself very much as a ‘hands-on’ architect, equally at home in the boardroom as embedded in a Scrum team. Julian believes that data warehousing is even more important today as organisations are moving away from traditional ‘monolith’ data warehouses to a more distributed landscape where agility (in all its guises) is the new frontier for Data practitioners.
