CDO TechVent

The NEW way Data Leaders evaluate data tools

The emerging discipline of observability seeks to help business and IT leaders understand all the moving pieces. It monitors indicators, correlates them, identifies issues, assesses root causes, generates alerts, and remediates issues. But how do you extract just the right signals from all that noise? And how many tools do you need?

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.
