Big Data Governance: Modern Data Management Principles for Hadoop, NoSQL & Big Data Analytics

Big Data Governance: Modern Data Management Principles for Hadoop, NoSQL & Big Data Analytics adds A book titled Big Data Governance: Modern Data Management Principles for Hadoop, NoSQL & Big Data Analytics to its list of recommended books. The book offers simple and ready-to-use templates for implementing data governance for big data initiatives.
The book offers architectural diagrams and blueprints for successful implementation of data governance for big data lakes using Hadoop instances such as Cloudera, Horton Works and MAPR.
The book includes several chapters that highlight the security and data governance gaps associated with Hadoop and several solution components to develop data governance structure, organization and software platform. These topics include data privacy, data sovereignty, data access controls, data councils, data governance, data quality, meta-data management and data lifecycle management for Hadoop infrastructures such as Cloudera, Horton Works, and MAPR.
“Many IT organizations are finding their data governance policies either inadequate or incomplete when it comes to their massive big data lakes”, said Peter Ghavami, “This book identifies gaps in data governance across enterprise. It’s an excellent handbook for IT security professionals because it offers ready-to-use template and recipes for building a data governance structure including key policies that must be considered for an enterprise wide data governance initiative.”
The book offers a comprehensive look at big data best practices in data governance, data lakes, Hadoop and open source Apache tools. More information about the book can be found at:

The book reveals secrets to simple and low cost implementations of data governance across the enterprise. It suggests several architectural drawings for authentication, security, data privacy and access controls including Sentry, Kerberos, Ranger and other Apache tools such as the Atlas project.

“Creating a data governance guideline from scratch is not easy, in particular for big data analytics”, said Peter Ghavami, “IT professionals and security consultants will love this book since it contains a data governance handbook template that can be easily adopted as a starting point for drafting big data governance policies for organizations of any size”, the author added.

The book is written for IT leaders, CIO, CTO, Chief Data Officers, Chief Security Officers, IT security professionals, consultants, data analysts and data scientists who want to learn how to protect their big data assets and bring the entire enterprise data analytics under governance.

The book saves IT professionals a lot of time and consulting costs since it includes ready-to-use policies and governance templates for big data”.

The book packs years of consulting experience and best practices by the author, into a readable and easy to read handbook.
