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.

To compete in today’s world, business leaders are placing increased demands on IT. Unfortunately, many IT departments are not able to deliver future innovation with their current infrastructure, applications and processes. To meet these demands, IT must digitally transform the enterprise through the adoption of cloud native practices, allowing them to both optimize and transform their existing infrastructure and applications. Recent Avanade research supports this thinking, finding that 88% of senior IT decision-makers believe that IT modernization is crucial to addressing the emerging requirements of the digital business1 . On the upside, those surveyed also indicated that by modernizing their IT infrastructures they expect to deliver real business results, such as boosting annual revenue by 14%, while at the same time reducing business operating costs by 13%1 . For many, this sounds like a winning strategy but what does it mean to adopt cloud native approaches, and how does it impact

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects: • Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service.

Video collaboration opens up opportunities for greater interaction and innovation, regardless of industry. Everyone benefits. For example, in healthcare, video is dramatically changing the way institutions interact with customers and professionals. In recent years, a number of hospitals across the United States have been subscribing to video and voice call centers that enable them to share language interpretation services, psychiatric care services and other developing capabilities. In the process, video collaboration is affecting business outcomes, changing business processes and helping healthcare facilities achieve scale, cost and efficiency not seen before.

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.
