Enterprises are focusing on becoming ever more data-driven, meaning that it is simply unacceptable to allow data to go to waste. Yet, as the amount of data businesses collect and control continues to increase exponentially, many organizations are failing to derive enough business value from their data. Companies are feeling the pressure to extract maximum value from all of their data, both defensive and offensive. Defensive analytics are the “plumbing aspects” of data management that must be captured to mitigate risk and establish a basic understanding of business performance. Offensive analytics build on defensive analytics and support overarching business objectives, strategic initiatives and long-term goals using predictive models. In this whitepaper, you will learn how to address many challenges, including streamlining operational reporting, delivering insight and providing a single, unified platform for everyone.

The competitive advantages realized from a dependable Business Intelligence and Analytics (BI/A) are well documented. Everything from reduced business costs and increased customer retention to better decision making and the ability to forecast opportunities have been observed outcomes in response to such programs. The implementation of such a program remains a necessity for any growing or mature enterprise. The establishment of a comprehensive BI/A program that includes traditional Descriptive Analytics along with next generation categories such as Predictive or Prescriptive Analytics is indispensable for business success.

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.

The future of Master Data Management is deriving value from data relationships which reveal more data stories that become more and more important to competitive advantage as we enter into the future of data and business analytics. MDM will be about supplying consistent, meaningful views of master data and being able to unify data into one location, especially to optimize for query performance and data fit. Graph databases offer exactly that type of data/performance fit. Use data relationships to unlock real business value in MDM: - Graphs can easily model both hierarchical and non-hierarchical master data - The logical model IS the physical model making it easier for business users to visualize data relationships - Deliver insights in real-time from data relationships in your master data - Stay ahead of the business with faster development Download and read the white paper Your Master Data Is a Graph: Are You Ready? to learn why your master data is a graph and how graph databases like Neo4j are the best technologies for MDM.

Ever since organisations started to implement packaged software solutions to solve business problems and streamline their processes there has been a need to access their data for the purposes of reporting and analytics, integration, governance, master data and more. Information Management projects such as these rely on data professionals being able to understand the underlying data models for these packages in order to be able to answer the critical question “Where’s the data?”. Without this knowledge it is impossible to ensure accuracy of data or timely delivery of projects. In addition the lack of discovery tools designed to meet this challenge has meant that performing this task has commonly been frustrating, time-consuming and fraught with risk. This white paper offers insight into why the traditional methods are not effective and how an innovative software product from Silwood Technology provides a faster and more effective approach to solving the problem.

Data centralization merges different data streams into a common source through unified variables. This process can provide context to overly-broad metrics and enable cross-platform analytics to guide better business decisions. Investments in analytics tools are now paying back a 13.01:1 return on investment (ROI), with increased returns when these tools integrate with three or more data sour- ces. While the perks of centralization are obvious in theory, the quantity and variety of data available in today’s landscape make this difficult to achieve. This report provides a roadmap for how to connect systems, data stores, and institutions (both technological and human). Learn: • How data centralization enables better analytics • How to redefine data as a vehicle for change • How the right BI tool eliminates the data analyst bottleneck • How to define single sources of truth for your organization • How to build a data-driven (not just data-rich) organization

By adding structure to free text using text analytics and graph databases, text becomes valuable business data. This paper examines a real life use case in risk analysis. Text is a part of all communication channels from social media, documents, logs, and data bases. In order to use the information from text, you need to extract the data in a way that provides useful information on entities, locations, organizations, and their properties. Graph databases are very powerful in showing the text relationships including the nearest neighbors, clusters, and the shortest paths. The combination of text analytics and graph databases can be used to solve business problems.

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. This paper is sponsored by: ASG, DGPO and DebTech International.
