Zaloni® and Eckerson Group will host a virtual event for evaluating Data Governance Platforms on April 26, 2022 and will showcare the data governance capabilities of Zaloni® Arena.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – March 31, 2022 – On April 26, 2022, Eckerson Group and Zaloni® will host a virtual event that focuses and showcases Data Governance Platforms. 

“Data governance technology is converging,” says Wayne Eckerson, president of Eckerson Group and moderator for the event. In the past, organizations purchased data governance functionality from different vendors, but today, they can obtain all the data governance capabilities they need from a single vendor. “There is now a race among vendors to offer comprehensive support for all data governance capabilities on a single platform,” he adds.

The CDO TechVent is a half-day virtual event designed to help data leaders accelerate the process of evaluating and selecting emerging technologies and products and learn best practices for implementing them. 

“It’s often challenging for companies to identify which products are best suited for their unique organization and use cases as technology innovation quickens and more products are released,” says Michele Reister, VP of Marketing at Zaloni®. “With Zaloni®’s upcoming participation in the CDO TechVent, we are looking forward to helping data teams understand how we can support and accelerate their data governance journey with our Zaloni Arena platform.” 

Agenda. The half-day event features a keynote, “How to Succeed with Data Governance & Pick the Right Tools,” by Sean Hewitt and Josh Reid, senior consultants at Eckerson Group. It will then feature a technology panel of leading data governance platform providers and will include Zaloni®’s CTO, Ashwin Nayak. The panelists will debate “How to Evaluate and Select a Data Governance Platform”. This is followed by small group discussions among attendees hosted by the event sponsor. The event will end with a digital reception where speakers will summarize key takeaways and take questions from the audience.  

Eckerson Group hosts CDO TechVent events three times a year on different emerging technologies. The inaugural event covered Data Catalogs. 2022 topics include data observability and data sharing. Registration is now open for the April 26th event focusing on data governance platforms.
