Ask any CEO if they want to better leverage their data assets to drive growth, revenues, and productivity, their answer will most likely be “yes, of course.” Ask many of them what that means or how they will do it and their answers will be as disparate as most enterprise’s data strategies. To successfully control, utilize, analyze, and store the vast amounts of data flowing through organization’s today, an enterprise-wide approach is necessary. The Chief Data Officer (CDO) is the newest member of the executive suite in many organizations worldwide. Their task is to develop and implement the strategies needed to harness the value of an enterprise’s data, while working alongside the CEO, CIO, CTO, and other executives. They are the vital “data” bridge between business and IT. This paper is sponsored by: Paxata and CA Technologies

This report analyzes many challenges faced when beginning a new Data Governance program, and outlines many crucial elements in successfully executing such a program. “Data Governance” is a term fraught with nuance, misunderstanding, myriad opinions, and fear. It is often enough to keep Data Stewards and senior executives awake late into the night. The modern enterprise needs reliable and sustainable control over its technological systems, business processes, and data assets. Such control is tantamount to competitive success in an ever-changing marketplace driven by the exponential growth of data, mobile computing, social networking, the need for real-time analytics and reporting mechanisms, and increasing regulatory compliance requirements. Data Governance can enhance and buttress (or resuscitate, if needed) the strategic and tactical business drivers every enterprise needs for market success.

90% of the time that is spent creating new reports is recreating information that already exists. Without a way to effectively share prior work and identify verified data sources, analysts and other data consumers lack shared context on how to apply data to analytic inquiries and business decision making. Time is wasted tracking down subject matter experts and trying to unearth tribal knowledge. Leading analytic organizations in retail, healthcare, financial services and technology are using data catalogs to help their analysts find, understand and use data appropriately.

When enterprises consider the benefits of data analysis, what's often overlooked is the challenge of data variety, and that most successful outcomes are driven by it. Yet businesses are still struggling with how to query distributed, heterogeneous data using a unified data model. Fortunately, Knowledge Graphs provide a schema flexible solution based on modular, extensible data models that evolve over time to create a truly unified solution. How is this possible? Download and discover: • Why businesses should organize information using nodes and edges instead of rows, columns and tables • Why schema free and schema rigid solutions eventually prove to be impractical • The three categories of data diversity including semantic and structural variety

Acting Quickly – Or Not at All The pace of business is accelerating. Enterprises must do more things, do them more quickly – and then adjust to market and competitive forces and do them differently. They must adapt in order to remain differentiated, and with that differentiation, hopefully build and sustain competitive advantage.

Everything about data has changed, but that only means that data models are even more essential to understanding that data so that businesses can know what it means. As development methodologies change to incorporate Agile workflows, data architects must adapt to ensure models stay relevant and accurate. This whitepaper describes key requirements for Agile data modeling and shows how ER/Studio supports this methodology.

Modern enterprises face increasing pressure to deliver business value through technological innovation that leverages all available data. At the same time, those enterprises need to reduce expenses to stay competitive, deliver results faster to respond to market demands, use real-time analytics so users can make informed decisions, and develop new applications with enhanced developer productivity. All of these factors put big data at the top of the agenda. Unfortunately, the promise of big data has often failed to deliver. With the growing volumes of unstructured and multi-structured data flooding into our data centers, the relational databases that enterprises have relied on for the last 40-years are now too limiting and inflexible. New-generation NoSQL (“Not Only SQL”) databases have gained popularity because they are ideally suited to deal with the volume, velocity, and variety of data that businesses and governments handle today.

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?

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

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.
