What is Azure Purview, and how can it help you with data governance? Richard chats with Laurie Litwack about the preview version of Azure Purview. Laurie discusses how Purview focuses on an overall view of data in an organization - collecting metadata about data wherever it is stored. That means collecting information about data in databases, file shares, on-premises, in the cloud, even on the various SaaS platforms like Salesforce. The result is a data catalog that can help your organization utilize data more effectively, as well as understand where sensitive data exists and is being created!
Laurie Litwack is a problem solver, a mother of daughters, and a compassionate geek. Presently working in the Azure Information Protection team, Laurie focuses on making it easier for Security and Data Professionals to discover and protect their sensitive data, anytime, anywhere.
She has two decades of experience with enterprise software development, and a decade of experience coaching women in tech. Laurie earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo in Canada, with a concentration in Management Sciences.
