Unity Catalog is an integrated solution that KPMG has used to simplify data governance and reduce integration costs while enabling controlled democratization and AI-powered discovery. With Unity Catalog, KPMG can easily tag and classify data, enable access control, and produce lineage while auditing movement and transformation. These foundational data governance capabilities are enhanced through Unity Catalog integration with Data Intelligence Platform, powering advanced interrogation of data in the lakehouse, unlocking its full potential. Learn how KPMG has benefited from Unity Catalog, streamlining its data governance and integration processes to simplify its data governance framework, reduce integration costs, and enable employees to use data more effectively. This session will include an overview of the Unity Catalog implementation and a demonstration of notebooks used by the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) organization to tag and classify data within the KPMG.
