About this talk

This talk was originally presented during data.world summit 2020.

Data catalogs are the information radiator for your data and analytics resource, and combine it with cross-functional collaboration and a central hub for reusable data work. This environment transforms the way businesses approach big projects and crucial business decisions, armed them with a competitive edge.

The value that a data catalog generates for your business is multi-faceted, and has an impact across team and business functions. In this talk, Ryan Cush, Chief Revenue Officer at data.world, walks through some of these data catalog value drivers, and shares tips and tricks on how to get rapid return-on-investment.
