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?

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.

VAT rules can be complex, HMRC – a gauntlet. In this eBook, we demystify some of the facts around compliance, tax and expense management. The British economy has gone from boom to bust. The recession followed by a long period of austerity and caution has altered spending behaviours while the government has increasingly cracked down on tax evasion and fraud. HMRC has become more focused on assisting businesses of all sizes to comply with their policies and implement good governance when it comes to finances.

Many businesses outsource their tax management to experts or muddle through, running the risk of non-compliance. There’s a real need for unambiguous, helpful advice about expenses, VAT and HMRC compliance. We’ve created this guide to help shine some light on the processes, practices and behaviours around tax and expenses based on some of the frequently asked questions we receive. Wh

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain. Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.

Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired.

Mobile devices have brought advancements to virtually all aspects of modern life and have had transformative effects on businesses spanning all industries. However, the positive business effects that can be brought about by mobility and "going digital" are not enjoyed as frequently within small and midsize businesses (SMBs) as they are within larger organizations. While potential benefits are there, small and midmarket organizations may have fewer resources available and can find difficulty in realizing the full value of the enterprise mobility infrastructure. Often, organizations find themselves having to make trade-offs between richness of functionality and available resources.
