“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” said Juliet to Romeo in the epic tale of love between members of two warring families. The quote is the tragedy and the central struggle for both Shakespeare’s famous play and the more mundane but certainly as epic modern-day Data Cataloging!  There is a lot in a name. SQL based databases and applications have many naming constraints like use of spaces, limited special c...

Harry Potter fans will remember the scene from “Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows” where upon entering the Lestrange vault, the treasures start multiplying repeatedly because of the Gemini curse (doubling charm). The objects in the vault proliferate rapidly, the duplicates multiplying themselves, and duplicates resulting from those duplications, ad infinitum, nearly crushing our heroes. If you are in data management, the above scene would have hit close to home. As number of data cons...

I experience Deja-Vu every single time I visit a CIO, VP IT or Analytics at a manufacturing organization. Then again, it does not really matter what industry the client operates in. The Deja-Vu has to do with the appearance of one or two staffers, often organizationally situated in the Line-of-Business IT function of a core business unit, as part of my workshop with said company. These unsung heroes are typically analyst-level folks who have the dubious pleasure of being the, what I call, Human ...
