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?

Creating metrics to measure the success or failure of your business may seem simple, but there are many avoidable mistakes that business leaders make every day. Many leaders end up focusing on “vanity metrics”, which might make the business look healthy, but do not actually give you insights into what is going on. And worst case, they are masking larger issues that you need to know and should be addressing. In this report, learn from other data-driven businesses how to avoid vanity metrics and focus on metrics that matter.

However, because it spans a variety of people, policies and technologies, data governance is a daunting effort. The SAS Data Governance Framework is designed to provide the organizational and technological structures needed to overcome common data governance failure points.

At the most fundamental level an organization only does two things: operations and changes to operations. Regardless of the industry an organization is part of, or whether it is private or public sector, large or small, there is a constant drive to protect and improve operational aspects. Whether it is launching a new product or service, decreasing costs, protecting infrastructure from failure or preventing regulatory noncompliance, there are numerous areas where an organization wants to change something about how it operates. That’s where projects come in. In this whitepaper we look at what causes projects to fail so regularly and offer a sustainable approach for improving performance consistently.

Today’s consumers are more informed, diverse, demanding and well-connected than ever before. With nearly unrestricted access to shopping resources used for discovery, comparison, and purchase, consumers are able to shop at will, often independent of branded retailer guidance. This rise of consumer independence can be attributed to the emergence of technological advancements favoring consumer empowerment; however, the repeated failures of brands to proactively offer personalized, high-value shopping experiences at scale is a significant contributing factor of consumer exodus. This has fostered an inclination among shoppers to become self-reliant in their pursuit of purchases, effectively shutting out promotional outreach from brands. Many brands continue to fall out of touch with their customers because they’ve lost sight of their customers’ true needs. Customer centricity has long been the foundation for modern marketing, but the brands which fail at creating deeply personalized market

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.

Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

Snapshot-based data protection solutions were supposed to solve our backup challenges, weren’t they? Then why are your backups still broken? If your snapshots are manually managed or of the “build-it-yourself” variety, there may be several reasons that they aren’t working very well.

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.

Enterprise data protection has grown unwieldy, with systems from various vendors claiming to protect all of an enterprise’s data—and none of them doing a particularly good job of addressing mission-critical data recoverability requirements. It’s a situation that introduces risk and raises concerns about IT’s ability to recover in a timely manner and without data loss from outages caused by cybercrime, system failures, or human error. An integrated strategy that focuses on the complete data recovery needs of an enterprise can eliminate data loss, cut recovery times, and reduce IT complexity—while ensuring data security and positioning the enterprise to seamlessly take advantage of the cloud.

The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex, and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation initiatives. Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Old Dutch Foods, known for its broad selection of snack foods in the midwest United States and Canada, was struggling to get the right products to the right places at the right time. Its data center included outdated physical servers, and batch processing meant that inventory would not be updated until the end of the day as opposed to real time. In addition, recovering from power outages and disk failures could frequently take up to two weeks. To modernize its data center, Old Dutch Foods invested in EMC Converged Infrastructure. The fast and easy deployment of two VCE VBlock® systems running JD Edwards, MS Exchange, mobile device apps, and operation of a backup site with replicated applications and data. This enhanced the IT department's responsiveness to the business, allowed them to shift to real-time inventory, and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs. Operations were simplified by reducing person-hours needed for infrastructure maintenance by 75 percent.
