Data management platforms are becoming increasingly distributed. Multicloud, edge, and other distributed cloud architectures are becoming more prominent in enterprise deployments, and data management architectures will need to keep pace to support evolving requirements.

  • What are the principal challenges associated with managing enterprise data across distributed environments?
  • How will data governance practices need to evolve to manage a single version of the truth in distributed architectures?
  • What should enterprises do to keep a lid on the overhead costs associated with managing data across increasingly distributed architectures?
  • What collaboration environments are best for augmenting the productivity of data management teams across distributed environments?
  • What changes to an orgaanization’s data management teams and staffing models are necessary to operate effectively across distributed environments?
