Towards Enterprise-Grade Data Discovery at ING with Apache Atlas and Amundsen

A successful implementation of the data discovery solution is the key enabler for the true democratisation of data in an enterprise context. It is also a prerequisite for transforming an old-school big data platforms that were primarily designed for ETL processes into robust analytics environment that your data scientist would love.
