As the world of data has transformed and analytics has become more critical in modern organizations, leaders everywhere are on a quest to make their organizations more data-literate and their decisions more data-driven.
The 2022 Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in Orlando, Florida, later this month is the perfect opportunity for data leaders to come together and learn about the latest insights and innovations from Gartner analysts. With over 5,000 attendees and 150 sessions, the three days of the Summit are packed with learnings to help data leaders leverage key data and analytics trends and establish a strategy, organization, and culture to drive better business outcomes.
In this article, we’ll highlight the key sessions around active metadata management, DataOps, data catalog and governance, and data fabric that you shouldn’t miss at this year’s Summit.
We’d also love to invite you to join us for a Gartner theater session with Venkat Gopalan (Chief Digital Officer, Belcorp) on August 23rd.
