What’s In Store for the Future for Master Data Management (MDM)?

Talend Blog - 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. So what are those changes likely to be, and how will they happen? In my view, MDM is and will change in important two ways in the coming years. First, there will be technological changes, such as moving MDM into the cloud or moving into more ‘software as a service’, or SaaS, offerings, which will change t...

With Dreamforce fast approaching, travel and hotel rooms are at the top of my mind.

New Support for AWS and Azure Government Clouds

Informatica Blog - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 15:00
Government institutions have the same pressure as the private enterprise to deliver modern solutions with maximized performance, accessibility, reliability, security, etc. with lower costs of ownership and high SLAs…. but with one very notable addition — data sovereignty. No matter how secure cloud vendors make their platforms, governments worldwide do not want their data to commingle with any other institution, and since compute now follows the data, this is driving the need for a separate clou...

On the last day of the Strata Data conference in New York City last week, right after he gave his presentation, I sat down with Paco Nathan, one of the great minds in the field of AI, who has his job title on LinkedIn listed as “Evil Mad Scientist” at Derwen, Inc. Since he’s actually a pretty nice guy, I don’t think I’d agree with the “Evil” part, but the rest pretty much fits. We’ll post the full interview soon, but in many ways, it turned into a discussion of the industry trends we’d seen over...

The Big Data Debate: Batch vs. Streaming Processing

Talend Blog - Tue, 09/18/2018 - 19:48
While data is the new currency in today’s digital economy, it’s still a struggle to keep pace with the changes in enterprise data and the growing business demands for information. That’s why companies are liberating data from legacy infrastructures by moving over to the cloud to scale data-driven decision making. This ensures that their precious resource— data — is governed, trusted, managed and accessible. While businesses can agree that cloud-based technologies are key to ensuring the data man...

Metadata is Your Most Valuable Asset in a Multi-cloud World

Informatica Blog - Tue, 09/18/2018 - 19:15
It feels a bit obvious, at this point, to refer to data as a company’s most valuable asset. If there are two truths in today’s digital world, it’s that data determines success, and that there’s an awful lot of data to manage. And given the latter challenge, I propose a new axiom: Metadata is actually your most valuable asset. This is particularly true as we move into an increasingly multi-cloud world. For many customers I talk to, “the cloud” is already many clouds: the big platforms, like AWS a...
