Incept Session: Featured speaker for the upcoming 17th Annual CDOIQ Symposium
This July, Incept Data Solutions' Field CTO, Anurag Singh, will be sharing his expertise on Data Quality-as-a-Service and his insights from a large project implementation. Anurag has over 15 years of experience as a solutions and enterprise architect for data management and governance solutions and has participated and led over 40 projects at Incept Data Solutions in the last seven years. In his presentation, Anurag will discuss a large-scale client project where a central Data Quality platform was created in the cloud, using leading technologies, that would be used in a distributed manner, "as-a-service".

The implementation of a data mesh architecture and approach were the underlying reasons for the platform to support distributed capabilities. The session will explain how the project was executed, including the challenges faced and the advantages sought by the organization. Anurag will also drive a panel discussion that will delve deeper into the strategies and use cases to help drive success for CDOs and their organizations. You may view his session page here.
