Talend Blog - Wed, 03/11/2020 - 01:34
    Can you keep a secret? What will it take for me to trust you to keep and protect a secret that I share with you? If you are a friend or family member, I may not need more than you saying “Yes”, but if I don’t know you, I will likely want additional guarantees or proof that I can trust you. This is particularly true if you are an organization handling personal information about me. In such case, I will want to be reassured by others that you are trustworthy and that my information ...

Informatica Blog - Thu, 03/05/2020 - 17:43
How do you make more data available to more users? This is the question keeping many data professionals up at night. I recently met up with a friend, Sean, who works at a large pharmaceutical company. His organization is very sophisticated in how they approach analytics, and they have a very advanced research organization that leverages AI and machine learning. But the challenge they’re facing is that more people want more data. “Every day I have someone coming to me and asking f...

Revealing the Intelligence in your Data with Talend Winter’20 (part 1)

Talend Blog - Thu, 03/05/2020 - 02:11
One of my favorite Talend customer success stories is the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

The story is also fascinating because they managed to decipher intelligence out of highly disparate and unknown data that they got from some of the history’s large...

Driving Adoption for Data Governance

Informatica Blog - Tue, 03/03/2020 - 22:36
If you ask anyone who has been involved with a Data Governance (DG) initiative, they will tell you that the hardest part is not the technology, but the cultural change required to support it. Technology eases the path, but any tool is only as good as what is put into it and only as current as the updates made to it. Imagine the first time that a user logs in to a data governance tool, they see a beautiful user interface and an intuitive user experience, and they begin to explor...

And how does API management today differ from that of five or 10 years ago?   In this post, I’ll review the API market ev...

Accelerate Your Healthcare Organization’s Digital Transformation at HIMSS20

Informatica Blog - Thu, 02/13/2020 - 00:57
I went to my first HIMSS conference in 1996. At that time, every doctor with a garage and a good idea had built an EHR and was exhibiting at HIMSS. You walked the floor, and it was huge then, but small compared to today’s health IT conference. Some of my Informatica colleagues had already been going to HIMSS for decades before I arrived. Collectively, our onsite team this year has probably spent well over 100 years attending HIMSS! As a data guy, I’ve always had the fervent belief tha...

Keep It Simple, Stupid (KISS) Guidelines

Informatica Blog - Fri, 02/07/2020 - 18:55
As any student in design school can tell you, the first design principle you come across is “KISS” (Keep It Simple, Stupid). This acronym, attributed to the late Lockheed Skunk Works lead engineer Kelly Johnson, is best understood if you remember that Lockheed’s products were often designed to be used in the theater of war. Kelly’s acronym would remind the designers at Lockheed that whatever they designed and built had to be simple enough so that it could be maintained and repaired in the fi...
