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?

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.

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!

David Loshin reexamines the way we ingest, manage, consume, and transform data into actionable information and intelligence. Read how this industry expert makes the case for data governance with an unconventional business-first focus. The conventional wisdom on data governance proposes hierarchies, operating models, and processes for data policy definition and implementation. Unfortunately, poorly-designed and minimally-planned data governance processes are ineffective because they are bureaucratic and overwhelming. This is especially true when processes are imposed by fiat, take a long time, and don't result in any short-term improvement in information value. But proper data governance is a critical success factor for master data management! In this paper, we examine the motivations for coupling data governance with master data management and consider how to evolve data policies and processes to position master data management for success.

This paper helps outline some of the ways to control BYOD risks and outlines other factors that influence your decision to establish a BYOD policy. Like Cloud-based software delivery, BYOD presents such compelling advantages over the traditional approach that its emergence as the dominant mobile strategy appears to be a question of “when” rather than “if.”

Project and portfolio management or PPM software can make or break an organization’s ability to deliver. The recent growth in portfolio management as a strategic business function has led to many vendors of software related to elements of project execution “bolting on” project and portfolio management (PPM) modules. This is a clear attempt to try and get a piece of a growing, lucrative market. Twenty five years ago, PPM software was nothing more than project management software with the ability to publish or share information across projects. It was capable of doing a lot, but none of it was intuitive and therefore wasn’t particularly useful. Compared to today’s solutions, those products were dinosaurs. Since then, many vendors have invested a lot of money into their solutions, developing world-class offerings that can truly support effective management of the portfolio, and, more important, of the business that portfolio drives.

Documents are an integral component to the successful operation of an organization. Whether in hardcopy or digital form, they enable the communication, transaction, and recording of business-critical information. To ensure documents are used effectively, organizations are encouraged to continually evaluate and improve surrounding workflows. This may involve automating elements of document creation, securing the transfer and storage of information, and/or simplifying the retrieval of records and the data contained within. These types of enhancements can save time, money, and frustration. This white paper will discuss top trends and requirements in the optimization of document-related business processes as well as general technology infrastructures for document management. It will also address how some office technology vendors have reacted to these trends to guide their design and development of products, solutions, and services.

Big data analytics offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to derive new business insights and drive smarter decisions. The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. Although organizations may have their structured data under fairly good control, this is often not the case with the unstructured content that accounts for the vast majority of enterprise information. Good information governance is essential to the success of big data analytics projects. Good information governance also pays big dividends by reducing the costs and risks associated with the management of unstructured information. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.

Big Data has been in the spotlight recently, as businesses seek to leverage their untapped information resources and win big on the promise of big data. However, the problem with big data initiatives are that organizations try using existing information management practices and legacy relational database technologies, which often collapse under the sheer weight of the data. In this paper, MarkLogic explains how a new approach is needed to handle the volume, velocity, and variety of big data because the current relational model that has been the status quo is not working. Learn about the NoSQL paradigm shift, and why NoSQL is gaining significant market traction because it solves the fundamental challenges of big data, achieving better performance, scalability, and flexibility. Learn how MarkLogic’s customers are reimagining their data to: - Make the world more secure - Provide access to valuable information - Create new revenue streams - Gain insights to increase market share - Reduce b
