Wrangling, metadata, and governance: Supervision vs. adoption

LL21 A

Wei Zheng discusses how data-wrangling solutions not only enable users to explore and prepare diverse data in Hadoop for analysis but also ensure that the metadata and data lineage created through this process are appropriately tracked and visible to others in the organization. When utilized effectively, metadata can help foster greater sharing and collaboration across users, boost productivity of data wrangling and analysis, and solve administration challenges of data lake governance.
