The Importance of Data Access Governance in Manufacturing
If you think data protection isn’t critical in the manufacturing industry, you’d be wrong. Digitization affects all industries, and data privacy is a key risk for manufacturers and any company that handles sensitive data related to customers, employees, and business partners.
Big data provides unprecedented ability to use machine learning and artificial intelligence for inventory management, supply chain optimization, demand forecasting, logistics, quality improvement, and more. While these insights can be valuable, companies must keep a close eye on who has access to what data, or risk running afoul of insider trading regulations or losing their “trusted partner” status with other parts of the manufacturing supply chain.
We credit Okera for reducing the hundreds of roles from our legacy database to about a dozen now in Snowflake, while giving us even more granular access control with user attributes. As a platform owner this saves me a lot of time and assures appropriate access as we expand how we use Snowflake with more users and data.

Implementing Data Privacy With Big Data in Manufacturing
Today, many manufacturing companies lack robust enough data privacy measures, and their IT teams are too under-resourced to properly steward the type and amount of data in their possession. Implementing the right tools can optimize data stewardship by creating data usage policies and implementing controls to help companies ensure data is protected, accurate, and accessible by approved parties.
