Fri, 09/21/2018 - 19:37
Master Data Management (MDM) has been around for a long time, and many people like myself, have been involved in MDM for many years. But, like all technologies, it must evolve to be successful.

Serverless: A Game Changer for Data Integration

Sat, 09/15/2018 - 00:46
The concept of cloud computing has been around for years, but cloud services truly became democratized with the advent of virtual machines and the launch of Amazon Elastic Compute in 2006. Following Amazon, Google launched Google App Engine in 2008, and then Microsoft launched Azure in 2010. At first, cloud computing offerings were not all that different from each other. But as with nearly every other market, segmentation quickly followed growth. In recent years, the cloud computing market has g...

Why data is no longer just an IT function

Tue, 08/21/2018 - 19:56
Data – or at least the collection, storage, protection, transfer and processing of it – has traditionally been seen as the role of a modern data-driven technical division. However, as data continues to explode in both volume and importance, it is not enough to gather huge amounts of disparate data into a data lake and expect that it will be properly consumed. With data becoming the defining factor of a business’s strategy, this valuable gold dust needs to be in the hands of the right business fu...

Making Data a Team Sport: Muscle your Data Quality by Challenging IT & Business to Work Together

Thu, 08/02/2018 - 18:29
Data Quality is often perceived as the sole task of a data engineer. As a matter of fact, nothing could be further from the truth. People close to the business are eager to work and resolve data related issues as they’re the first to be impacted by bad data. But they are often reluctant to update data as Data Quality apps are not really made for them or just because they are not allowed to use them. That’s one of the reasons bad data keeps increasing. According to Gartner, poor data quality cost...
