Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business.
The bottom line is that those that have the most customer insight will win because they know what customers want.
So the question is how will you get that insight? What is it that you don’t know about customers in the market(s) that you operate in? Do you have all the attributes about customers in your MDM system that could be of value to your business? Do you know about all the relationships that your customers have in your MDM system?
In most cases, the answer to the above questions is no which inevitably means one thing. You need more data
Cloud- based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on- premises data with new third- party cloud- based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.
A solid information integration and governance program must become a natural part of big data projects, supporting automated discovery, profiling and understanding of diverse data sets to provide context and enable employees to make informed decisions. It must be agile to accommodate a wide variety of data and seamlessly integrate with diverse technologies, from data marts to Apache Hadoop systems. And it must automatically discover, protect and monitor sensitive information as part of big data applications.
