Data Governance

Episode Details

In this episode, Daragh is joined by John Ladley, data governance pioneer and part of our Emeritus Advisor group in Castlebridge.

In this episode we discuss the “Death of Data Governance” and find that, despite the emergence of new technologies, the fundamentals of Data Governance are actually more important in the age of AI and, as a result, require us to invest more in developing the Human Factors in Data Governance.

Of course, it being John and Daragh, there is an obligatory reference of two to Statler and Waldorf from the Muppet show.
