    Get the Better of the Cloud: Uncovering the Data Management Myths

    When talking about Data Management I like Fern Halper’s TDWI definition: “It’s the process of collecting, storing, organizing, maintaining, and using data effectively. It includes several disciplines, such as data integration and data quality, master data management, data architecture, and metadata management.”

    Why is Data Management important? Let’s revisit the fundamental principles: data consistency, accuracy, accessibility, and security which are all essential to support and drive the organization’s strategic goals.

    A Few Data Management Myths:

    👩‍💻Technology (by itself) can solve our data problems:

    The appeal of technology as a solitary solution can be strong, particularly when faced with a vast array of options. As Matt Turk aptly illustrated in his March 2024 presentation, the sheer volume of available technologies can be overwhelming.

    🏬Data Management is only about data storage:

    Although with a modern integration platform, you can quickly store data from different repositories in one place, comprehensive data management requires a comprehensive and synergistic approach that leverages both business and technical expertise to achieve effective data integrations.

    🖊 Data Management is only for large enterprises:

    Data is a critical asset for organizations of all sizes. While common data management challenges exist across the board, larger enterprises may have more formalized approaches and leverage advanced technologies. Smaller organizations still require effective data management solutions, of course potentially scaled to their specific needs.

    An integrated data foundation at an appropriate scale, serves as a basis for developing robust analytical strategies that empower informed decision-making across the organization, after having this foundation clear, the right technology solution can be selected.
