Featured Presentation:

What's a Data Catalog?

Josh Smith, Database Administrator

With laws like GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act or the upcoming Washington Privacy Act organizations need to provide more details about the data they’re storing or risk significant fines. We’ll look at the features of two tools for collecting and reporting on meta-data for SQL databases: Azure Data Catalog & Redgate’s SQL Data Catalog. We’ll then take a quick tour of SQL Data Catalog in particular and explore the process for creating and applying a taxonomy to our data.
