Webinar: Taking an Active Approach to Data Governance

Riot Games created and runs “League of Legends,” the world’s most-played PC game and most viewed eSport — and is now transforming to become a multi-title publisher. To keep pace with this transformation and support a growing player base of millions, Riot Games is taking a page from Bob Seiner’s book, “Non-Invasive Data Governance: The Path of Least Resistance and Greatest Success” and leveraging the Alation Data Catalog to help guide accurate, well-governed analysis.
 
Bob Seiner will join Riot Games’ Chris Kudelka, Technical Product Manager, and Michael Leslie, Senior Data Governance Architect, and Alation’s John Wills, VP of Professional Service, for an inside look at Data Governance at one of the world’s leading gaming companies.
 
Join this webinar to learn:
  • How Riot Games is implementing Non-Invasive Data Governance
  • How this new approach to Data Governance helps to drive the business
  • How the Alation Data Catalog helps Riot Games create the foundation for guiding accurate, well-governed data use
