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).

As the interest in managing information and enforcing corporate data management policies increases, data governance programs to manage data sets are becoming more and more vital to the business operation. However, in this rush for data governance programs, sometimes the true utility and importance of metadata can be missed. In this white paper, David Loshin of Knowledge Integrity, Inc. discusses the importance of data governance and the role of metadata management as a way to empower data governance and enforce data policies.

90% of the time that is spent creating new reports is recreating information that already exists. Without a way to effectively share prior work and identify verified data sources, analysts and other data consumers lack shared context on how to apply data to analytic inquiries and business decision making. Time is wasted tracking down subject matter experts and trying to unearth tribal knowledge. Leading analytic organizations in retail, healthcare, financial services and technology are using data catalogs to help their analysts find, understand and use data appropriately.

When enterprises consider the benefits of data analysis, what's often overlooked is the challenge of data variety, and that most successful outcomes are driven by it. Yet businesses are still struggling with how to query distributed, heterogeneous data using a unified data model. Fortunately, Knowledge Graphs provide a schema flexible solution based on modular, extensible data models that evolve over time to create a truly unified solution. How is this possible? Download and discover: • Why businesses should organize information using nodes and edges instead of rows, columns and tables • Why schema free and schema rigid solutions eventually prove to be impractical • The three categories of data diversity including semantic and structural variety

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.

Modern enterprises face increasing pressure to deliver business value through technological innovation that leverages all available data. At the same time, those enterprises need to reduce expenses to stay competitive, deliver results faster to respond to market demands, use real-time analytics so users can make informed decisions, and develop new applications with enhanced developer productivity. All of these factors put big data at the top of the agenda. Unfortunately, the promise of big data has often failed to deliver. With the growing volumes of unstructured and multi-structured data flooding into our data centers, the relational databases that enterprises have relied on for the last 40-years are now too limiting and inflexible. New-generation NoSQL (“Not Only SQL”) databases have gained popularity because they are ideally suited to deal with the volume, velocity, and variety of data that businesses and governments handle 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

Every organization looks for ways to reduce costs and run more efficiently. In fact, those are key drivers for the mainstream adoption of Hadoop and self-service BI tools. And while we can now collect and store more data than ever before, and we have enabled every information worker into a data-hungry analyst, not much consideration has been paid to the cost - including time and effort - of preparing data.

Few organizations have fully integrated the role of the Data Steward due to concerns about additional project complexity, time away from other responsibilities or insufficient value in return. The principles of the Agile methodology (whether or not Agile is followed for projects) can offer guidance in making the commitment to designating and empowering the Data Steward role. By placing insightful people in a position to connect innovators, respond to change and spur development aligned with business activities, organizations can expect to see a more efficient and effective use of their information assets.

The age of Big Data is upon us. Storage costs are going down, and data analytics is becoming more capable and more user-friendly. Even your auto mechanic will be storing a petabyte of data soon. Big Data will give businesses new insights and help improve operations. With these new tools come questions about how to use them. But your mechanic knows more about fixing a transmission than developing a Hadoop cluster, and similar concerns hold true for larger enterprises. Businesses everywhere are looking for guidance.
