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

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. This paper is sponsored by: ASG, DGPO and DebTech International.

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?

How do you get a machine learning system to deliver value from big data? Turns out that 90% of the effort required for success in machine learning is not the algorithm or the model or the learning - it's the logistics. Ted Dunning and Ellen Friedman identify what matters in machine learning logistics, what challenges arise, especially in a production setting, and they introduce an innovative solution: the rendezvous architecture. This new design for model management is based on a streaming approach in a microservices style. Rendezvous addresses the need to preserve and share raw data, to do effective model-to-model comparisons and to have new models on standby, ready for a hot hand-off when a production model needs to be replaced.

With future business intelligence solutions clearly evolving from data that comes from highly efficient and well behaved systems, to data that comes from the extended enterprise where data is not necessarily so well structured and behaved - Organizations are forced into a more collaborative mode of operation with their core infrastructure being adapted from the consumer space, and to the extent possible, conformed to their existing repositories. This whitepaper attempts to address various challenges consumers face while managing enormous data sets within the context of this complex scenario. Further, we’ll try to answer the question: Is Big Data Governance really that different from traditional data governance initiatives?

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.

One of the biggest challenges in a data management initiative is aligning different and sometimes competing organizations to work towards the same long-term vision. It is very difficult to execute a data management program all at once, or as a “big bang” approach. Rather, the program should be deployed in phases over time, starting in one area and incrementally building out and adding value to the rest of the organization over time.
