How to improve data quality with effective governance

8:00 AM PDT/10:00 AM CDT/11:00 AM EDT
4:00 PM BST/5:00 PM CEST

Using data as a strategic asset, and enabling data to be shared with customers and business partners, makes the need for effective governance critical. Not only to ensure that data is kept secure and used responsibly, but also that the quality of the data meets the needs of the business. Without effective data governance in place, companies face regulatory and reputational risk, as well as the risk and cost of running a business on poor quality data.

In this webinar our data experts will discuss how to enable data democratization (and all its benefits) while maintaining the necessary control to ensure high quality, trustworthy data.

Attendees will learn

  • The benefits of a federated, computational approach to data governance
  • How DataOps practices can help ensure effective enforcement
  • How to look at governance at the back of data strategy, tying it to tangible ROI
  • How a lean, lightweight approach can help gain buy-in and achieve scale

AI Guardrails: The role of managed operations

June 4, 5 11 or 12

The pace at which organizations are exploring and testing AI use cases across the business is in constant acceleration. Few AI engines today may easily turn into 100 in the next few years. And, as the AI landscape exponentially grows, there will be greater oversight from regulators. But who is responsible for providing the guardrails? How should organizations monitor outliers based on faults in the algo or inaccurate training data? Who will assess for bias and hallucinations?

In this webinar, we’ll discuss why managed operations are poised to play the overseer role at scale and how dashboards and reports can be generated from operations and fed into the managed services database to spot anomalies and manage risk.

Takeaways/what you will learn in this webinar:

  • From a compliance standpoint, the potential impact of AI growth for highly regulated industries
  • From a corporate risk perspective, the governance and control processes you should build out before rolling out AI algorithms
  • When it comes to AI strategy, considerations for establishing a governance position on responsible tech
  • The foundations you need to start getting in place today before implementing AI engines across the enterprise at scale.
