Webinar: Understanding Metadata – Why It's Essential to Your Big Data Solution and How to Manage It Well

May 24, 2016 Kelly Hopkins Schupp


How much does metadata impact your big data solution and your business?

The answer might surprise you. Metadata is essential for managing, migrating, accessing, and deploying a big data solution. Without it, enterprises have limited visibility into the data itself and can’t trust its quality—negating the value of data in the first place. Creating end-to-end data visibility allows you to keep track of data, enable search and query across big data systems, safeguards your data, and reduces risk.

Why attend: 

Join Ben Sharma, co-founder and CEO of Zaloni and Vikram Sreekanti, software engineer in the AMPLab at UC Berkeley to:

  • Learn about Ground, a new open-source project under development at UC Berkeley. Discover how Ground impacts a wide range of data tasks, including data inventory, usage tracking, model-specific interpretation, reproducibility, interoperability, and collective governance.
  • Understand how access to your data's lineage allows you to know where data has come from, where it is, and how it is being used.
  • Explore how data context stretches the bounds of what we have traditionally considered metadata.
