Not long ago, companies that collected a single terabyte of data were considered elite. They were members of the Terabyte Club!
These days, however, the volume of data collected in a single day is exponentially larger than a terabyte. As the data flows into your data warehouse, how can your users, executives, and external customers be certain that the information they consume is complete and trustworthy?
Your organization needs to utilize enterprise-class information management capabilities as part of your data warehouse solution. Doing so can help lower overall project risk, enhance confidence in the quality of your information, and reduce costs through less development effort.
It’s never too late to add information governance to your analytics project. Our consultants can show you how to evaluate and monitor your data during its lifetime as it moves through your organization.
Our Big Data and Analytics team can help you achieve success in the following areas:
- Data Movement and Data Quality: Ad hoc processes and hand-coded scripts maintained by a few IT specialists will not help you maximize your data investment. Graphically create real-time or batch data integration jobs that can be centrally shared among all developers. Continuous quality monitoring assures your data is cleansed, enriched, and validated properly before being used for analysis.
- Information Lifecycle Governance: Transforming, cleansing, and delivering data is just one part of Information Management. Establishing a metadata strategy allows business users and IT to have meaningful visibility into the data used for reporting. They will see data entities described with common, agreed-upon definitions, and be able to view the lineage, impact analysis, and survivorship rules of the data.
- Master Data Management (MDM): Having a single view of your customers, products, services, and other entities is critical to the operations of your business. But this data is often held in multiple source systems, each storing the data in its own way. MDM matches and links the data across multiple sources to create a “golden record” for you to use. Let LRS show you how utilizing good master data can improve customer service, increase customer intimacy, and assist with regulatory requirements.
