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?

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.

Every day, demanding customers, unforeseen competition, and disruptive new technologies hammer home that we have entered the age of the customer, where established business operations no longer work. Yet, most marketing functions still rely on decades-old methods that undermine their ability to create post-digital brand experiences and help their firms become customer-focused. Smart CMOs recognize that it is time to pivot their marketing function around the customer, rather than transactions, sales, their brand, or day-to-day operations. In March 2018, Adobe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the link between email innovation and customer obsession. To explore this topic, Forrester conducted an online survey with 256 US consumers who use personal email and 260 marketing technology and strategy decision makers at US companies with 500 or more employees.

The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.
