As companies invest in low-code / no-code technologies to put data-driven power in everybody’s hands, the role of Data Governance (DG) is evolving. While DG’s traditional scope of implementing regulatory compliance, security, and privacy controls on data remains unchanged, DG is emerging as a powerful tool for ensuring data becomes part of day-to-day life and decision making.

We will demonstrate why and how Data Governance is the critical discipline needed to ensure that investments in recent powerful technologies deliver on their promises of bringing data to every level of the enterprise.

Join Microsoft and Adastra as we explore how core DG disciplines are expanding to the next step of data democratization, and how to leverage them to enable data fluency and usage. We will also demonstrate how Microsoft Purview, a cutting-edge unified data governance solution, can accelerate the implementation of key DG practices with its powerful automated scanning, discovery, classification, and monitoring capabilities.
