Web Briefing – Thursday, 21 June 2018 | 16:30 GMT / 11:30am EDT
A Web Briefing is a 20-minute, high-intensity online seminar. Like CrossFit for your mind.
Satisfying the demanding data requirements for plugged-in business users quickly requires updated, intuitive solutions that can address governance, management and curation of information in parallel. But talking about cloud solutions brings the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and a 30-page security questionnaire; even a strong business case can get bogged down. Working with some of the most demanding organisations in the world, Entity Group has a 5-step methodology, cloud data hub checklist, and experience from dozens of engagements that will help your security team see an Intelligent Data Hub project as an accelerator, and get on board with delivering business value in weeks.
