For many BI professionals, every task can feel like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. All the manual mapping required to sort out inconsistencies in data and the lack of tools to simplify and shorten the process of finding and understanding data leaves BI groups frustrated and slows down the business. This whitepaper examines the revolutionary impact of automation on the cumbersome manual processes that have been dragging BI down for so long. • Data correction vs process correction • Root-cause analysis with data lineage: reverse-tracing the data flow • Data quality rules and data controls • Automated data lineage mapping

This report analyzes many challenges faced when beginning a new Data Governance program, and outlines many crucial elements in successfully executing such a program. “Data Governance” is a term fraught with nuance, misunderstanding, myriad opinions, and fear. It is often enough to keep Data Stewards and senior executives awake late into the night. The modern enterprise needs reliable and sustainable control over its technological systems, business processes, and data assets. Such control is tantamount to competitive success in an ever-changing marketplace driven by the exponential growth of data, mobile computing, social networking, the need for real-time analytics and reporting mechanisms, and increasing regulatory compliance requirements. Data Governance can enhance and buttress (or resuscitate, if needed) the strategic and tactical business drivers every enterprise needs for market success. This paper is sponsored by: ASG, DGPO and DebTech International.

As combinations of both internal and externally-imposed business policies imply dependencies on managed data artifacts, organizations are increasingly instituting data governance programs to implement processes for ensuring compliance with business expectations. One fundamental aspect of data governance involves practical application of business rules to data assets based on data elements and their assigned values. Yet despite the intent of harmonizing data element definitions and resolution of data semantics and valid reference values, most organizations rarely have complete visibility into the metadata associated with enterprise data assets.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In the last few years, a wave of digital technologies changed the banking landscape - social/ mobile altered the way banks engage with customers, analytics enabled hyper personalized offerings by making sense of large datasets, Cloud technologies shifted the computing paradigm from CapEx to OpEx, enabling delivery of business processes as services from third-party platforms. Now, a second wave of disruption is set to drive even more profound changes - including robotic process automation (RPA), AI, IOT instrumentation, blockchain distributed ledger and shared infrastructure, and open banking platforms controlled by application programming interfaces (API). As these technologies become commercialized, and demand increases for digitally-enabled services, we will see unprecedented disruption, as non-traditional banks and fintechs rush into all segments of the banking space. This whitepaper examines key considerations for banks as they explore value in the emerging Digital 2.0 world.

The implications of AI’s unique approach are profound: AI can learn by example rather than through brute-force programming; can understand human intention and emotions and act accordingly; and can handle extraordinarily complex relationships of data that are beyond the capability of human analysts working alone. AI can multiply what we currently do and take us to experiences we’ve never had before, at a speed and scale that will change entire industries. In these case studies, we’re pleased to present a range of real-world examples to guide your imagination. Here, you’ll find situations where companies like yours found AI to be part of the solution. These examples show how AI can enhance an existing application, workflow or process and reduce friction. This e-book presents how 10 organizations are using artificial intelligence to accelerate decision making, improve business processes, enhance user engagement, reduce costs and drive remarkable growth and profitability.

The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data. Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.

Configuration Management is at the heart of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and forms the foundation for Business Service Management (BSM). In fact, it is safe to say that neither the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes nor the BSM functions that leverage ITSM can be efficiently carried out without accurate configuration and dependency information.
