Informatica Blog - Fri, 06/12/2020 - 20:19
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the lives of higher education students, faculty, and staff that depend upon these colleges and universities. While many of these schools have demonstrated resilience and innovation by embracing distance learning, guidance, and support for their students, the financial viability of these schools will remain at risk if they can’t clear the path for everybody to return to campus as soon as possible. This can happen only if a comprehensive plan is in place to ensu...

However, those little check boxes on the forms are about to play a much bigger role in how payer and provider organizations, along with commercial businesses, interact with our healthcare data. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information...

Informatica Blog - Wed, 06/10/2020 - 20:42
Over the last 30 years the evolution of consumer protection and data privacy regulations have required organizations to dramatically transform their approach to customer data management.  While most professionals are somewhat familiar with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) due to their more recent public passage and outward-facing impacts to digital storefronts, a surprisingly large number are not as aware of some of the more longsta...

Building on an Agile Data Governance Framework

Informatica Blog - Fri, 06/05/2020 - 20:18
Where to begin? Governance is far more than just keeping a good glossary of business terms up to date. In fact, governance should bring together all sorts of different data assets and perspectives. From glossary and data inventories, to processes and policies and organizational views, there is a whole lot to think about. There will inevitably be competing priorities when any company first embarks on their data governance journey. Different teams will want different things docum...

The Business Value of Data Governance: Describing “What’s in It for Me?”

Informatica Blog - Thu, 06/04/2020 - 21:50
“What’s in it for me?” As a CDO, that’s the key question you need to answer when building out your data governance strategy. In my work with customers, everyone from C-level executives to data practitioners describes a new charter within data governance. While controlling risk and overseeing compliance are still priorities, CDOs are now also tasked with driving business value by providing quick and easy access to high-quality data and accelerating decision-making. In order to get buy-in to y...

Over the last few years, the phrase “Data drives all business transformation” has been ubiquitous and probably over-used in different contexts (I plead guilty to that charge as a data and analytics professional). But as we all collectively grapple with personal and professional challenges in the interesting times we are living in now, the importance of data and the need to understand what it means has been driven home powerfully on a daily basis. At a personal level, every day when I catch up...
