Data Observability – What is it and why is it important?

This session looks at the emergence of Data Observability and looks at what it is about, what Data Observability can observe, vendors in the market and examples of what vendors are capturing about data. The presentation will also look at Data Observability requirements, the strengths and weaknesses of current offerings, where the gaps are and tool complexity (overlaps, inability to share metadata) from a customer perspective. It will explore the link between Data Observability, data catalogs, data intelligence and the move towards augmented data governance and discuss how Data Observability and data intelligence can be used in a real-time automated Data Governance Action Framework to govern data across multiple tools and data stores in next generation Data governance.
