Data catalog implementations can vary depending on the use-case requirements, tool capabilities and maturity of each organization. There are also many vendor solutions and technology options through which companies can add data cataloging capabilities to their existing data management architecture.

This session will help D&A Leaders & other participants understand the past, present and future of Data Catalogs. Provide answers to their questions, technology trends, available technology options, pricing trends, implementation trends etc.
