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.

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.

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.

The start of a new chapter of your business, whether you're moving upmarket or adding products and features, is a great time to scale your customer service operations in a smart way. We know customers prefer self-service, via a knowledge base, if one is available. A Gartner report estimates that CIOs can reduce customer support costs by 25% or more when proper knowledge management discipline is in place. If you've been on the sidelines waiting to take the self-service leap, this white paper will prove that you and your agents already partake in the activities needed to offer great self-service, every single day.

What does a digital transformation look like? It varies from organization to organization, of course, since they have invested in countless systems and applications over the years. Digital transformation consists of building new applications and next-generation architectures on today’s open standards, using on-demand resources. For many organizations, digital transformation also means optimizing existing systems and application resources – integrating, replacing, or abstracting key pieces of their infrastructures into services.

Unlike surveys that just look at what respondents say at a specific point in time, the BPTrends survey has been asking questions of process practitioners for over a decade. Thus, we are in a good position to generalize about ongoing trends in process work. Broadly speaking, the interest in business process change has evolved slowly. For some organizations the progress has been dramatic, but for most, their process initiatives are best described by the phrase “two steps forward; one step back.” An amazing number of organizations have focused on process work for several years, made significant progress, then, seemingly forgotten all about their process work, regressed, and then, a few years later, started up again.
