Featuring Blair Bardwell, Director Technology, AT&T and Pari Pandya, Director Technology, AT&T
Data democratization is the future of big data. It is possibly the most important enabler for transformational business insights. It means making data and information findable and accessible beyond a small group of experts, unleashing employees across the organization. It is no less than a game-changer for insights, decision making, and better customer experiences. The free flow of information makes it possible to accelerate speed to insight for immensely impactful business results.
Yet, eliminating gatekeepers and broadening access come with risks:
- Security & Privacy
- Costly and confusing data duplication
- Unknown quality
- Misinterpretation that leads to bad decisions
Data Governance with guidelines and guardrails is still essential. A primary Data Governance enabler is a rich data catalog.
AT&T started its catalog initiative several years ago with the purpose of democratizing meaningful data across departmental lines. Today this platform is called Amp. Amp, a centralized repository, enables a culture of data sharing, reusability, and extensibility. This platform is consistent with privacy, security and other policies, while making data, insights and communities findable to employees across the enterprise.
Find out more about how this transformation has evolved AT&T’s data, and how it is breaking down barriers to create a single, powerful source of information that business units can trust and use in new ways.
