    We are at the juncture of a major shift in how we represent and manage data in the enterprise. Conventional data management capabilities are often ill equipped to handle the increasingly challenging data demands of the future. This is especially true when volumes of bespoke labeled data elements are dispersed across multiple lines of business organizations or sourced from external sites containing unstructured content. Knowledge graph technology has emerged as a viable production ready capability to elevate the state of the art of data management. Knowledge graph can remediate many difficult data challenges and open up new realms of opportunities not easily achievable using legacy technologies.

    This presentation will describe the operational capabilities and benefits of knowledge graph technology: “The Future of Enterprise Data". We will discuss how ontologies are the way forward to better represent enterprise definitions and data. We will describe how knowledge graph technology can provide a layer of “knowledge” over physical data assets to obtain maximum understanding of data inventory. We will further explain how knowledge graphs can provide the foundational building blocks for implementing highly linked and integrated data ecosystems. We will lastly describe how knowledge graph technology can be used as a better data bridge for AI and machine learning capabilities.

    According to IDC, investments in cloud technology will surpass $150B in 2020, up from $80B just a decade ago and that 67% of enterprise infrastructures will be cloud based by the end of 2020.

    Cloud is where innovation is taking place however it may never completely replace on-premise systems that we see across the industry. As financial institutions take advantage of Cloud innovation, they also need to ensure these new investments can integrate, exchange data, and support ongoing business processes with existing systems both on premise and on other cloud platforms.

    Join Peter Ku, VP & Chief Industry Strategist from Informatica as we discuss: 

    • Why cloud? What’s driving it? What are companies investing in?
    • What challenges does cloud computing have on existing data management and data governance practices and frameworks?
    • What can companies do to prepare their data management and governance capabilities to ensure they are ready for the cloud?
