Data management is becoming more and more central to the business model of enterprises. The time when data was looked at as little more than the byproduct of automation is long gone, and today we see enterprises vigorously engaged in trying to unlock maximum value from their data, even to the extent of directly monetizing it. Yet, many of these efforts are hampered by immature data governance and management practices stemming from a legacy that did not pay much attention to data. Part of this problem is a failure to understand that there are different types of data, and each type of data has its own special characteristics, challenges and concerns. Reference data is a special type of data. It is essentially codes whose basic job is to turn other data into meaningful business information and to provide an informational context for the wider world in which the enterprise functions. This paper discusses the challenges associated with implementing a reference data management solution and the essential components of any vision for the governance and management of reference data. It covers the following topics in some detail: · What is reference data? · Why is reference data management important? · What are the challenges of reference data management? · What are some best practices for the governance and management of reference data? · What capabilities should you look for in a reference data solution?

This paper presents a practitioner informed roadmap intended to assist enterprises in maturing their Enterprise Information Management (EIM) practices, with a specific focus on improving Reference Data Management (RDM). Reference data is found in every application used by an enterprise including back-end systems, front-end commerce applications, data exchange formats, and in outsourced, hosted systems, big data platforms, and data warehouses. It can easily be 20–50% of the tables in a data store. And the values are used throughout the transactional and mastered data sets to make the system internally consistent.

Data governance is a lifecycle-centric asset management activity. To understand and realize the value of data assets, it is necessary to capture information about them (their metadata) in the connected way. Capturing the meaning and context of diverse enterprise data in connection to all assets in the enterprise ecosystem is foundational to effective data governance. Therefore, a data governance environment must represent assets and their role in the enterprise using an open, extensible and “smart” approach. Knowledge graphs are the most viable and powerful way to do this. This short paper outlines how knowledge graphs are flexible, evolvable, semantic and intelligent. It is these characteristics that enable them to: • capture the description of data as an interconnected set of information that meaningfully bridges enterprise metadata silos. • deliver integrated data governance by addressing all three aspects of data governance — Executive Governance, Representative Governance, and App

This 2nd paper in a 3-part series by David Loshin explores some challenges in bootstrapping a data governance program, and then considers key methods for using metadata to establish the starting point for data governance. The paper will focus on how metadata management facilitates progress along three facets of the data governance program including assessment, collaboration and operationalization.

As combinations of both internal and externally-imposed business policies imply dependencies on managed data artifacts, organizations are increasingly instituting data governance programs to implement processes for ensuring compliance with business expectations. One fundamental aspect of data governance involves practical application of business rules to data assets based on data elements and their assigned values. Yet despite the intent of harmonizing data element definitions and resolution of data semantics and valid reference values, most organizations rarely have complete visibility into the metadata associated with enterprise data assets.

Add Big Data Technologies to Get More Value from Your Stack Taking advantage of big data starts with understanding how to optimize and augment your existing infrastructure. Relational databases have endured for a reason – they fit well with the types of data that organizations use to run their business. These types of data in business applications such as ERP, CRM, EPM, etc., are not fundamentally changing, which suggests that relational databases will continue to play a foundational role in enterprise architectures for the foreseeable future. One area where emerging technologies can complement relational database technologies is big data. With the rapidly growing volumes of data, along with the many new sources of data, organizations look for ways to relieve pressure from their existing systems. That’s where Hadoop and NoSQL come in.

How do you get a machine learning system to deliver value from big data? Turns out that 90% of the effort required for success in machine learning is not the algorithm or the model or the learning - it's the logistics. Ted Dunning and Ellen Friedman identify what matters in machine learning logistics, what challenges arise, especially in a production setting, and they introduce an innovative solution: the rendezvous architecture. This new design for model management is based on a streaming approach in a microservices style. Rendezvous addresses the need to preserve and share raw data, to do effective model-to-model comparisons and to have new models on standby, ready for a hot hand-off when a production model needs to be replaced.

Emerging business innovations focused on realizing quick business value on new and growing data sources require “hybrid transactional and analytical processing” (HTAP), the notion of performing analysis on data directly in an operational data store. While this is not a new idea, Gartner reports that the potential for HTAP has not been fully realized due to technology limitations and inertia in IT departments. MemSQL offers a unique combination of performance, flexibility, and ease of use that allows companies to implement HTAP to power their business applications.

This whitepaper defines provides a brief technical overview of ACID support in Aerospike. It includes a definition of ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability), and an overview of the CAP Theorem, which postulates that only two of the three properties of consistency, availability, and partition tolerance can be guaranteed in a distributed system at a specific time. Although Aerospike is an AP system with a proven track record of 100% uptime, this paper describes Aerospike's unique approach to avoiding network partitioning to also ensure high consistency. In addition, the paper describes how Aerospike will give users the option to support a CP configuration with complete consistency in the presence of networking partitioning by reducing availability.
