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

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.

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.

Much has been written and debated about the use of SQL NULLs to represent unknown values, and the possible use of three-valued logic. However, there has never been a systematic application of any three-valued logic to use in the logical expressions of computer programs. This paper lays the foundation for a systematic application of three-valued logic to one of the two problems inadequately addressed by SQL NULLs.

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.

In most applications we use today, data is retrieved by the source code of the application and is then used to make decisions. The application is ultimately affected by the data, but source code determines how the application performs, how it does its work and how the data is used. Today, in a world of AI and machine learning, data has a new role – becoming essentially the source code for machine-driven insight. With AI and machine learning, the data is the core of what fuels the algorithm and drives results. Without a significant quantity of good quality data related to the problem, it’s impossible to create a useful model. Download this Whitepaper to learn why the process of identifying biases present in the data is an essential step towards debugging the data that underlies machine learning predictions and improves data quality.

This paper argues a case for the use of coarse grained reconfigurable array (CGRA) architectures for the efficient acceleration of the data flow computations used in deep neural network training and inferencing. The paper discusses the problems with other parallel acceleration systems such as massively parallel processor arrays (MPPAs) and heterogeneous systems based on CUDA and OpenCL, and proposes that CGRAs with autonomous computing features deliver improved performance and computational efficiency. The machine learning compute appliance that Wave Computing is developing executes data flow graphs using multiple clock-less, CGRA-based System on Chips (SoCs) each containing 16,000 processing elements (PEs). This paper describes the tools needed for efficient compilation of data flow graphs to the CGRA architecture, and outlines Wave Computing’s WaveFlow software (SW) framework for the online mapping of models from popular workflows like Tensorflow, MXNet and Caffe.

This paper examines whether blockchain distributed ledger technology could improve the management of trusted information, specifically considering data quality. Improvement was determined by considering the impact of a distributed ledger as an authoritative source in TD Bank Group's Enterprise Data Quality Management Process versus the use of standard authoritative sources such as databases and files. Distributed ledger technology is not expected, or proven, to result in a change in the Data Quality Management process. Our analysis focused on execution advantages possible due to distributed ledger properties that make it an attractive resource for data quality management (DQM).

This report analyzes many challenges faced when beginning a new Data Governance program, and outlines many crucial elements in successfully executing such a program. “Data Governance” is a term fraught with nuance, misunderstanding, myriad opinions, and fear. It is often enough to keep Data Stewards and senior executives awake late into the night. The modern enterprise needs reliable and sustainable control over its technological systems, business processes, and data assets. Such control is tantamount to competitive success in an ever-changing marketplace driven by the exponential growth of data, mobile computing, social networking, the need for real-time analytics and reporting mechanisms, and increasing regulatory compliance requirements. Data Governance can enhance and buttress (or resuscitate, if needed) the strategic and tactical business drivers every enterprise needs for market success.

There are actually many elements of such a vision that are working together. ACID and NoSQL are not the antagonists they were once thought to be; NoSQL works well under a BASE model, but also some of the innovative NoSQL systems fully conform to ACID requirements. Database engineers have puzzled out how to get non-relational systems to work within an environment that demands high availability, scalability, with differing levels of recovery and partition tolerance. BASE is still a leading innovation that is wedded to the NoSQL model, and the evolution of both together is harmonious. But that doesn’t mean they always have to be in partnership; there are several options. So while the opening anecdote is true in many cases, organizations that need more diverse possibilities can move into the commercial arena and get the specific option that works best for them.
