The Business Case for Federated Data Governance and Access Control

By Myles Suer, Strategic Marketing Director at Privacera

Around 2011, I was working as a product manager to work with HP’s enterprise architecture team. Soon after, I noticed these folks were wired just like me—they were systems thinkers. About this time my new friend, Don Brancato, encouraged me to get a copy of Enterprise Architecture as Strategy by Jeanne Ross, Peter Weill, and David Robertson. As I read the book from cover to cover, I remember  thinking, “now everything that is going on in IT makes sense.” It was only later that I actually got to be trained in TOGAF (The Open Group Architecture Framework).
