CDO TechVent

The NEW way Data Leaders evaluate data tools

Eckerson Group launched an innovative virtual event in 2021 to allow CDO’s and data leaders to quickly assess data platforms in a number of different functional areas. The first edition centered around Data Catalogs and took place on December 15, 2021. Each TechVent is a half-day virtual event for chief data officers and their team leaders to provide practical advice for selecting and implementing key data technologies. Vendors pre-record demonstrations of their product utilizing a standardized format, making needs analysis and comparison much quicker and easier. We hope you will join us for this unique event series.

Data governance technology is converging. In the past, organizations purchased data governance functionality from different vendors. Today, organizations 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. Emerging data governance platforms promise to support all data governance functions, from data catalogs and business glossaries to policy catalogs, workflow management, and data governance reporting.


In some cases, data governance platforms focus exclusively on data governance activities; in others, they merge data governance with data management and analytics functionality. In either case, the data governance platform sends policies, guidelines, standards, and tags to data management and analytics software and receive  metadata in turn to support governance activity.

Each of our sites is singularly focused on a specific solution category like Identity Management, Wireless Networks or Data Integration.
