90% of the time that is spent creating new reports is recreating information that already exists.

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 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

The success of a business is increasingly influenced by how effectively it utilizes data within strategic decision making & operations. But when a business views its critical data simply as a byproduct of business processes, and doesn’t value it as a business asset, it increases the risk of not being able to achieve its desired outcomes.

It is critically important for businesses today to leverage data as a strategic asset, instead of allowing it to become an obstacle. As more and more organizations are trying to make smarter, data-driven decisions, they are discovering that their data management strategy may not be as mature as it needs to be. One major shift we are seeing is the implementation of a Chief Data Officer. Experian Data Quality recently conducted a research study of more than 250 Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Data Officers (CDOs) in the US about their data management practices, and the explosion of the CDO role. Key insights in the report include: - Tips for overcoming typical data challenges within your organization - The changing data management landscape and its affect on the CIO - The new and growing need for the CDO - And more!

Everyone in an organization relies on Metadata to do their jobs. Whenever an email is sent, a report is run, inventory is ordered, compliance procedures are verified, a new IT system is integrated, applications are executed, or essentially any other business function, process, or decision is undertaken, Metadata is facilitating in the background. If that Metadata is corrupt, missing, redundant, or unpredictable then they cannot do their jobs well, they cannot trust the data they are using, and the organization ultimately suffers at all levels. Data Stewards are the people who are use, define, cleanse, archive, analyze, and share the data that is mapped directly to the Metadata of their myriad database and application systems. If your organization does not have Data Stewards (or an inefficient Stewardship Program), you need them. This paper is sponsored by: ASG.

Master data management (MDM) is about people and process; it is not about technology. Implementing MDM technology alone will not address operational and business process challenges. Rather, “mastering” data involves people taking action through established data policies and processes. Data Governance ensures that data in the MDM hub is of high quality and can be trusted by business users. Lacking Data Governance, organizations do not have consistent data definitions or know what constitutes a data problem, who is accountable, what decisions need to be made, or how to escalate and resolve issues.

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions. The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2
