Session: Building an open source control plane for data

Shirshanka Das, Co-Founder & CTO @ Acryl

Today's data landscape, spanning operational, streaming, lakehouse, and warehouse systems, grapples with the complexities of decentralization. Do you seek new approaches, tools, and solutions to address challenges in data discovery, management, governance, quality, and observability?

How about a visibility layer, or control plane, for the data distributed across your stack?
In this session, Shirshanka Das, founder of the open source DataHub Project, will describe how a control plane for data, powered by metadata, can simplify data discovery, foster team collaboration, and offer real-time observability into data assets.
This talk will cover:
  • The control plane for data and its role in the decentralized data stack
  • Using the open-source DataHub Project to implement the control plane for data
  • How data contracts help you define and enforce decentralized governance
  • How this helps reduce operational overhead and keep cloud costs down
  • Why the industry is gravitating towards these ideas—and why the DataHub Project is key
