Mohan will outline technology trends and advances shaping the data catalog market. He will also close the event by detailing criteria that companies should use to evaluate data catalog products.

Panelists. The event will then feature a panel of leading data catalog providers, including Data.World, Alation, Quest (via Sandhill Consultants), and BigID who will discuss “How to Evaluate and Select a Data Catalog”. Next, a panel of top data leaders will discuss “Tips for Implementing a Data Catalog”.

Virtual Bakeoff. The event also features a virtual bakeoff in which attendees view and evaluate pre-recorded scripted demos from data catalog vendors. “The 15-minute side-by-side demos are a great way for data leaders to quickly compare products and create a short-list for further evaluation,” says Wayne Eckerson, president of Eckerson Group.
