Ask any CEO if they want to better leverage their data assets to drive growth, revenues, and productivity, their answer will most likely be “yes, of course.” Ask many of them what that means or how they will do it and their answers will be as disparate as most enterprise’s data strategies. To successfully control, utilize, analyze, and store the vast amounts of data flowing through organization’s today, an enterprise-wide approach is necessary. The Chief Data Officer (CDO) is the newest member of the executive suite in many organizations worldwide. Their task is to develop and implement the strategies needed to harness the value of an enterprise’s data, while working alongside the CEO, CIO, CTO, and other executives. They are the vital “data” bridge between business and IT. This paper is sponsored by: Paxata and CA Technologies

The growth of NoSQL data storage solutions have revolutionized the way enterprises are dealing with their data. The older, relational platforms are still being utilized by most organizations, while the implementation of varying NoSQL platforms including Key-Value, Wide Column, Document, Graph, and Hybrid data stores are increasing at faster rates than ever seen before. Such implementations are causing enterprises to revise their Data Management procedures across-the-board from governance to analytics, metadata management to software development, data modeling to regulation and compliance. The time-honored techniques for data modeling are being rewritten, reworked, and modified in a multitude of different ways, often wholly dependent on the NoSQL platform under development. The research report analyzes a 2015 DATAVERSITY® survey titled “Modeling NoSQL.” The survey examined a number of crucial issues within the NoSQL world today, with focus on data modeling in particular.

This paper explores the differences between three situations that appear on the surface to be very similar: a data attribute that may occur zero or one times, a data attribute that is optional, and a data attribute whose value may be unknown. It shows how each of these different situations is represented in Concept and Object Modeling Notation (COMN, pronounced “common”). The theory behind the analysis is explained in greater detail by three papers: Three-Valued Logic, A Systematic Solution to Handling Unknown Data in Databases, and An Approach to Representing Non-Applicable Data in Relational Databases.

Ever since Codd introduced so-called “null values” to the relational model, there have been debates about exactly what they mean and their proper handling in relational databases. In this paper I examine the meaning of tuples and relations containing “null values”. For the type of “null value” representing unknown data, I propose an interpretation and a solution that is more rigorously defined than the SQL NULL or other similar solutions, and which can be implemented in a systematic and application-independent manner in database management systems.

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.

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?

This paper presents a practitioner informed roadmap intended to assist enterprises in maturing their Enterprise Information Management (EIM) practices, with a specific focus on improving Reference Data Management (RDM). Reference data is found in every application used by an enterprise including back-end systems, front-end commerce applications, data exchange formats, and in outsourced, hosted systems, big data platforms, and data warehouses. It can easily be 20–50% of the tables in a data store. And the values are used throughout the transactional and mastered data sets to make the system internally consistent.

Data governance is a lifecycle-centric asset management activity. To understand and realize the value of data assets, it is necessary to capture information about them (their metadata) in the connected way. Capturing the meaning and context of diverse enterprise data in connection to all assets in the enterprise ecosystem is foundational to effective data governance. Therefore, a data governance environment must represent assets and their role in the enterprise using an open, extensible and “smart” approach. Knowledge graphs are the most viable and powerful way to do this. This short paper outlines how knowledge graphs are flexible, evolvable, semantic and intelligent. It is these characteristics that enable them to: • capture the description of data as an interconnected set of information that meaningfully bridges enterprise metadata silos. • deliver integrated data governance by addressing all three aspects of data governance — Executive Governance, Representative Governance, and App

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.

Add Big Data Technologies to Get More Value from Your Stack Taking advantage of big data starts with understanding how to optimize and augment your existing infrastructure. Relational databases have endured for a reason – they fit well with the types of data that organizations use to run their business. These types of data in business applications such as ERP, CRM, EPM, etc., are not fundamentally changing, which suggests that relational databases will continue to play a foundational role in enterprise architectures for the foreseeable future. One area where emerging technologies can complement relational database technologies is big data. With the rapidly growing volumes of data, along with the many new sources of data, organizations look for ways to relieve pressure from their existing systems. That’s where Hadoop and NoSQL come in.
