Noted SQL Server MVP and founder/editor of SSWUG.org Stephen Wynkoop shares his take on the challenge to achieve quality data, and the importance of the "Golden Record" to an effective data quality regiment. Achieving the Golden Record involves collapsing duplicate records into a single version of the truth - the one single customer view (SCV). There are different approaches to achieving the Golden Record. Wynkoop explores Melissa's unique approach that takes into consideration the actual quality of the contact data as the basis of survivorship. Learn How: • Poor data quality negatively affects your business • Different data quality implementations in SQL Server • Melissa's unique approach to achieving the Golden Record based on a data quality score

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.

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?

Maintaining high quality data is essential for operational efficiency, meaningful analytics and good long-term customer relationships. But, when dealing with multiple sources of data, data quality becomes complex, so you need to know when you should build a custom data quality tools over canned solutions. To answer this question, it is important to understand the difference between rules-based data quality, where internal subject matter expertise is necessary – and active data quality, where different domain expertise and resources are required.

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.

As companies embrace NoSQL as the “next big thing,” they are rightly cautious of abandoning their investment in SQL. The question a responsible developer or IT manager must investigate is “in which cases are each of these technologies, SQL and NoSQL, the appropriate solution?” For example, cloud provider BigStep offered this assessment: “NoSQL is not the best model for OLTP, ad hoc queries, complicated relationships among the data, and situations when stability and reliability outweigh the importance of speed.” While that statement may be true of many NoSQL databases, c-treeACE is the exception. Its unique, No+SQL architecture offers the advantages of SQL on top of a robust, high-performance NoSQL core engine. In this white paper, you'll read five ways c-treeACE breaks the NoSQL mold in terms of: • Data Integrity • Availability and Reliability • Complex Data Relationships • Flexible Queries • Performance
