Knowledgent CTO to Speak at MDM & Data Governance Summit

Knowledgent’s own Informationist Christ Blotto will be speaking at the MDM & Data Governance Summit at the Sheraton Times Square in New York City October 5-7. Chris is presenting “MDM in a Big Data World” at the Industry Innovation Lunch on Monday, October 6, from 11:45am to 12:45pm.

“More organizations are looking at Big Data solutions, such as the Data Lake, for managing their data, and their users need to be able to find the data they need when they need it,” explains Mr. Blotto. “As a result, there is a need for an on-demand Data and Analytics as a Service model, one that is not driven by specific analytics projects. MDM is a key enabler of this new paradigm.”
