ELT-G: Locating governance in the modern data stack
ELT is a data ingestion pattern that promotes an "extract first, model later" approach to building data workflows. While it saved time for data teams and enabled more agile development, the buzz about ELT has not given proper credit to its silent G: governance. Unlike transformations, proper governance, and in particular, securing access to data, cannot be deferred until later, and requires clear, consistent principles to be implemented by data teams.
During his talk, Stephen will provide a framework for thinking about data governance in an ELT landscape, introduce policy-based access controls, and provide some suggestions for data teams to get started with better governance today.
