NoSQL database management systems give us the opportunity to store our data according to more than one data storage model, but our entity-relationship data modeling notations are stuck in SQL land. Is there any need to model schema-less databases, and is it even possible? In this short white paper, Ted Hills examines these questions in light of a recent paper from MarkLogic on the hybrid data model.

Interactive applications have changed dramatically over the last 15 years. In the late ‘90s, large web companies emerged with dramatic increases in scale on many dimensions: · The number of concurrent users skyrocketed as applications increasingly became accessible · via the web (and later on mobile devices). · The amount of data collected and processed soared as it became easier and increasingly · valuable to capture all kinds of data. · The amount of unstructured or semi-structured data exploded and its use became integral · to the value and richness of applications. Dealing with these issues was more and more difficult using relational database technology. The key reason is that relational databases are essentially architected to run a single machine and use a rigid, schema-based approach to modeling data. Google, Amazon, Facebook, and LinkedIn were among the first companies to discover the serious limitations of relational database technology for supporting these new application requirements. Commercial alternatives didn’t exist, so they invented new data management approaches themselves. Their pioneering work generated tremendous interest because a growing number of companies faced similar problems. Open source NoSQL database projects formed to leverage the work of the pioneers, and commercial companies associated with these projects soon followed. Today, the use of NoSQL technology is rising rapidly among Internet companies and the enterprise. It’s increasingly considered a viable alternative to relational databases, especially as more organizations recognize that operating at scale is more effectively achieved running on clusters of standard, commodity servers, and a schema-less data model is often a better approach for handling the variety and type of data most often captured and processed today.

The Age of Information and the associated growth of the World Wide Web has brought with it a new problem: how to actually make sense of all the information available. The overarching goal of the Semantic Web is to change that. Semantic Web technologies accomplish this goal by providing a universal framework to describe and link data so that it can be better understood and searched holistically, allowing both people and computers to see and discover relationships in the data. Today, organizations are leveraging the power of the Semantic Web to aggregate and link disparate data, improve search navigation, provide holistic search and discovery, dynamically publish content, and complete ETL processes faster. Read this white paper to gain insight into why Semantics is important, understand how Semantics works, and see examples of Semantics in practice.

The future of Master Data Management is deriving value from data relationships which reveal more data stories that become more and more important to competitive advantage as we enter into the future of data and business analytics. MDM will be about supplying consistent, meaningful views of master data and being able to unify data into one location, especially to optimize for query performance and data fit. Graph databases offer exactly that type of data/performance fit. Use data relationships to unlock real business value in MDM: - Graphs can easily model both hierarchical and non-hierarchical master data - The logical model IS the physical model making it easier for business users to visualize data relationships - Deliver insights in real-time from data relationships in your master data - Stay ahead of the business with faster development Download and read the white paper Your Master Data Is a Graph: Are You Ready? to learn why your master data is a graph and how graph databases like Neo4j are the best technologies for MDM.

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.

One of the biggest challenges in a data management initiative is aligning different and sometimes competing organizations to work towards the same long-term vision. It is very difficult to execute a data management program all at once, or as a “big bang” approach. Rather, the program should be deployed in phases over time, starting in one area and incrementally building out and adding value to the rest of the organization over time.

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.

Everyone in an organization relies on Metadata to do their jobs. Whenever an email is sent, a report is run, inventory is ordered, compliance procedures are verified, a new IT system is integrated, applications are executed, or essentially any other business function, process, or decision is undertaken, Metadata is facilitating in the background. If that Metadata is corrupt, missing, redundant, or unpredictable then they cannot do their jobs well, they cannot trust the data they are using, and the organization ultimately suffers at all levels. Data Stewards are the people who are use, define, cleanse, archive, analyze, and share the data that is mapped directly to the Metadata of their myriad database and application systems. If your organization does not have Data Stewards (or an inefficient Stewardship Program), you need them.

Organizations maintain data-based assets in hopes of successfully employing them in support of strategy. In an attempt to provide valued products and/or services, a customer relationship management (CRM) strategy should attempt to improve what is known about the wants and needs of existing customers. An organization may desire to transfer its inventory to its suppliers and to only play the role of transaction broker. A third strategy might be to use data to obtain significant efficiencies from productions/operations, ensuring a low cost advantage.
