Modernizing Metadata

Metadata is more relevant than ever. It continues to be a powerful enabler for high-value data-driven business activities across operations, analytics, and compliance. However, to maintain this relevance, metadata management must deal with the increasing complexity of today’s business use cases and hybrid data environments. Metadata management is notoriously manual which makes it slow in development and error-prone in maintenance. Metadata management needs better tool automation. Metadata management is typically siloed due to users managing metadata per tool or platform. Metadata management needs a unified solution that is suited to sharing, reuse, governance, and comprehensive views of distributed data.

DataEd Webinar: Essential Reference and Master Data Management

Data tends to pile up and can be rendered unusable or obsolete without careful maintenance processes. Reference and Master Data Management (MDM) has been a popular Data Management approach to effectively gain mastery over not just the data but the supporting architecture for processing it. This webinar presents MDM as a strategic approach to improving and formalizing practices around those data items that provide context for many organizational transactions: its master data. Too often, MDM has been implemented technology-first and achieved the same very poor track record (one-third succeeding on-time, within budget, and achieving planned functionality). MDM success depends on a coordinated approach typically involving Data Governance and Data Quality activities.

Strategies for Fitting a Data Lake into a Modern Data Architecture

McKnight Consulting Group

Whether to take data ingestion cycles off the ETL tool and the Data Warehouse or to facilitate competitive Data Science and building algorithms in the organization, the Data Lake a place for unmodeled and vast data will be provisioned widely in 2019. Though it doesn’t have to be complicated, the Data Lake has a few key design points that are critical, and it does need to follow some principles for success. Avoid building the Data Swamp, but not the Data Lake! The tool ecosystem is building up around the Data Lake and soon many will have a robust Lake and Data Warehouse. We will discuss policy to keep them straight, send “horses to courses,” and keep up users’ confidence in the Data Platforms.
