EP15 – Promethium: a data context solution for governance and analytics – Kaycee Lai

In the 15th episode of the TECHunplugged Podcast we’re recording we’ll be talking with Kaycee Lai, founder and CEO of Promethium. Podcast co-host Arjan Timmerman (@Arjantim) talks with Kaycee Lai (@MrDedupe) on the technology that Promethium provides for their customers. This solution provides analytics and the correct information for companies with data lakes. Things like GDPR and other governance and regulations needed by the promethium customers can be addressed by the Promethium software, and thus the question arises if Promethium is the next level data management platform.
