Interactive applications have changed dramatically over the last 15 years. In the late ‘90s, large web companies emerged with dramatic increases in scale on many dimensions: · The number of concurrent users skyrocketed as applications increasingly became accessible · via the web (and later on mobile devices). · The amount of data collected and processed soared as it became easier and increasingly · valuable to capture all kinds of data. · The amount of unstructured or semi-structured data exploded and its use became integral · to the value and richness of applications. Dealing with these issues was more and more difficult using relational database technology. The key reason is that relational databases are essentially architected to run a single machine and use a rigid, schema-based approach to modeling data. Google, Amazon, Facebook, and LinkedIn were among the first companies to discover the serious limitations of relational database technology for supporting these new application requirements. Commercial alternatives didn’t exist, so they invented new data management approaches themselves. Their pioneering work generated tremendous interest because a growing number of companies faced similar problems. Open source NoSQL database projects formed to leverage the work of the pioneers, and commercial companies associated with these projects soon followed. Today, the use of NoSQL technology is rising rapidly among Internet companies and the enterprise. It’s increasingly considered a viable alternative to relational databases, especially as more organizations recognize that operating at scale is more effectively achieved running on clusters of standard, commodity servers, and a schema-less data model is often a better approach for handling the variety and type of data most often captured and processed today.

This Case Study focuses on a highly successful data lineage project between ASG Software Solutions and a major global financial institution. The initial project which began in 2011 with the primary goal of achieving greater control, awareness, and ownership over the institution’s data assets due to new regulatory and federal audit controls. As the project progressed and the positive relationship between ASG and the Bank deepened, all stakeholders involved began to see much broader potential for the entire project than originally envisioned.

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 demand for using data as an asset has grown to a level where data-centric applications are now the norm in enterprises. Yet data-centric applications fall short of user expectations at a high rate. Part of this is due to inadequate quality assurance. This in turn arises from trying to develop data-centric projects using the old paradigm of the SDLC, which came into existence during an age of process automation. SDLC does not fit with data-centric projects and cannot address the QA needs of these projects. Instead, a new approach is needed where analysts develop business rules to test atomic items of data quality. These rules have to be run in an automated fashion in a business rules engine. Additionally, QA has to be carried past the point of application implementation and support the running of the production environment.

Businesses today recognize the importance of the data they hold, but a general lack of trust in the quality of their data prevents them from achieving strategic business objectives. Nearly half of organizations globally say that a lack of trust in their data contributes to increased risk of non-compliance and regulatory penalties (52%) and a downturn in customer loyalty (51%). To be of value to organizations, data needs to be trustworthy. In this report, you will read about the findings from this unique study, including: · How data powers business opportunities · Why trusted data is essential for performance · Challenges that affect data quality · The current state of data management practices · Upcoming data-related projects in 2017

Ever since organisations started to implement packaged software solutions to solve business problems and streamline their processes there has been a need to access their data for the purposes of reporting and analytics, integration, governance, master data and more. Information Management projects such as these rely on data professionals being able to understand the underlying data models for these packages in order to be able to answer the critical question “Where’s the data?”. Without this knowledge it is impossible to ensure accuracy of data or timely delivery of projects. In addition the lack of discovery tools designed to meet this challenge has meant that performing this task has commonly been frustrating, time-consuming and fraught with risk. This white paper offers insight into why the traditional methods are not effective and how an innovative software product from Silwood Technology provides a faster and more effective approach to solving the problem.

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.

The rapid pace of change in attitudes to IaaS underlines how quickly it has become a key part of enterprise IT. Even in the past three months, adoption levels and positive attitudes toward IaaS have grown. IaaS was originally seen as a way to reduce overall spend and shift budgets from capital expenditure to operating expenditure, and there is no doubt that it has done both. But it is striking how businesses have grown to appreciate the wider benefits of IaaS from greater productivity to freeing staff from routine maintenance in order to work on more value-adding projects.
