About the webinar

Did you know that organizations spend 80% of their time organizing data? Now more than ever we’re seeing the gaps when data integrity and quality matter the most. Governments struggle to make sense of their data as data is everywhere and it is hard to get a grasp on it.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The obstacles organizations face when dealing with data
  • The definition of data preparation to enable AI and analytics
  • How getting the right data quality will ultimately drive better decisions
  • The challenges and opportunities with using open source for data preparation
