Educating and Equipping DBAs for Success in the Age of Ever-Changing Data Governance

The Infotel-sponsored presentation at IDUG NA 2024, in partnership with mainframe expert and thought leader Craig S. Mullins, will focus on a topic becoming increasingly important to modern DBAs: What Does Data Governance Mean for DBAs and Why Should They Care? This session, to be held Tuesday, June 25 at 3:20 pm, will explore the evolving landscape of data governance and its impact on Db2 administration on the mainframe.

“Data governance is a concept of increasing importance to DBAs,” said Jeff Castella, Infotel Corp’s global vice president of software. “Today’s DBAs play a central role in ensuring enterprise data accuracy, security, and compliance, and with new data governance laws introduced recently in the United States, the playing field is changing every day. Craig’s presentation will equip them with the knowledge and strategies to navigate this new reality.”

Mullins’ Presentation Will Address Key Questions for DBAs on Db2:
  • How does data governance impact day-to-day Db2 administration tasks?
  • What are the benefits of embracing a data governance culture?
  • What tools and techniques can DBAs leverage to ensure data governance best practices for compliance?

By understanding data governance principles and their practical application, DBAs can become valuable partners in safeguarding and optimizing their organizations’ data assets.
