An Introduction to Pragmatic Data Governance with Azure Data Catalog

by Dawie Kruger, Azure Practice Lead & Richard Roose, Principal Consultant – Altis Sydney

In this webinar, we discuss how you can pragmatically kick start your Data Governance initiative using the Azure Data Catalog. Use this link to view the free webinar, or watch it below.


As “Data Literacy” and Data & Analytics in organisations continues to mature, it’s becoming more important to capture this valuable business knowledge and make it easily accessible to the broader enterprise.

Azure Data Catalog supports this knowledge capture through two main access points:

    • The Data Asset Registry which makes data assets accessible/discoverable by the enterprise
    • The Business Glossary which provides the functions necessary to support Data Owners/Stewards in their day2day responsibilities of governing and managing data assets


We encourage you to connect with us and our team to talk about how we can help with your Pragmatic Data Governance Journey. We can help you determine the readiness of your organisation and organise a more in-depth technical demonstration if required.
