90% of the time that is spent creating new reports is recreating information that already exists. Without a way to effectively share prior work and identify verified data sources, analysts and other data consumers lack shared context on how to apply data to analytic inquiries and business decision making. Time is wasted tracking down subject matter experts and trying to unearth tribal knowledge. Leading analytic organizations in retail, healthcare, financial services and technology are using data catalogs to help their analysts find, understand and use data appropriately.

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.

Business functions in large organizations are usually handled by software application packages. Some of the most well-known of these are from SAP, Oracle, Salesforce and Microsoft. These packages all store their data in a database. Often however it is necessary to use that data with other IT projects. In this instance being able to understand the metadata that defines these databases is critical. The challenge is that their metadata is complex, opaque and difficult to access. This paper describes how the top application packages store and use their own metadata. It explores the importance of understanding that metadata and examines the obstacles in getting at that metadata in a timely and effective manner.

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.

As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center. In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.

Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.

Use of cloud computing by enterprise companiesis growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.

Consider the volume of business content that your organization generates or receives every day: applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and even social media about your company. If it is poorly managed, not digitized, or disconnected from critical business processes, it creates chaos. This chaos impacts your ability to deliver exceptional customer service; it slows down important processes, increases security risk, and negatively impacts revenue. Conversely, controlling content chaos can significantly improve your analytics strategy by gaining insight and business value from dark or unstructured data sources. In this eBook, learn how cognitive and cloud-based Enterprise Content Management, or ECM, can help you protect your content while gaining a competitive advantage from it as you grow.

The notion of digitizing your business has become a matter of “when,” rather than “if.” For many, migrating critical workloads to the cloud is a key part of this transformation. When deciding on a cloud provider, however, IT executives are under pressure to find a solution that enables reduced costs, greater agility, and above all, the ability to innovate core business processes. At the heart of many businesses embarking on this journey is their SAP environment. But since SAP workloads represent some of the most critical and deeply integrated business applications, IT executives are required to look for ways to execute this migration in the most timely and reliable manner. Organizations migrating to the cloud cannot risk application downtime or productivity loss. Provided by: AWS & Intel

For many years, the Magento ecommerce platform has been the retail inudtry go-to running an enterprise online store. However, when most businesses first made Magento their solution of choice, it was the only viable option out there. Today, Magento is no longer the only option in the mid-market and enterprise retail sectors. SaaS platforms like BigCommerce have disrupted this market, allowing for deep customization, unlimited prodcuts, industry-leading average uptime of 99.99% and 100% during Cyber Week, 24/7 support, one-click application integration, and seamless product updates. All for a fraction of the cost. Learn the five more critical differences between the two leading platforms in this white paper.

Modern technology initiatives are driving IT infrastructure in a new direction. Big data, social business, mobile applications, the cloud, and real-time analytics all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace. Customers increasingly drive the speed of business, and organizations need to engage with customers on their terms. The need to manage sensitive information with high levels of security as well as capture, analyze, and act upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical. These challenges will dramatically change the way that IT systems are designed, funded, and run compared to the past few decades.

In today’s IT infrastructure, data security can no longer be treated as an afterthought, because billions of dollars are lost each year to computer intrusions and data exposures. This issue is compounded by the aggressive build-out for cloud computing. Big data and machine learning applications that perform tasks such as fraud and intrusion detection, trend detection, and click-stream and social media analysis all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace. Companies increasingly need to drive the speed of business up, and organizations need to support their customers with real-time data.

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems. Many existing data protection solutions fail to meet the demands of critical databases because they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach to database backup and recovery not only exposes you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts performance and makes it difficult to recover within acceptable timeframes.

ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage. Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.

A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
