Book Description :

Financial services institutions like international banks and insurance companies frequently need to adapt to changes in their environments, yet manage risk and ensure regulatory compliance. The author Hans Wegener reveals how metadata can be used to achieve a successful and technological evolution. This unique approach is divided into three parts to: Explain how metadata can be used to increase an organization's ability to adopt changes Outline the peculiarities of financial corporations and how they affect value creation and solution design Present the practical side of effectively managing metadata and sustaining long term success Wegener firstly illustrates the peculiarities of both metadata management and the financial services industry. He combines both, puts them into context of use, and explains where and how this makes life difficult, as well as where and how value is created. This enables the reader to understand the impact of metadata management on his/her organization, its typical side effects, necessities, and benefits. The book then goes onto reveal how different crosscutting concerns managed in large financial corporations (change, risk, and compliance management) can revolutionize business by supporting them with metadata management. This provides a blueprint to be used in strategic planning. Finally, the mechanics of three important practical areas are discussed in-depth, namely managing evolution, quality, and sustainability. This provides helpful scripts for practitioners to be used in real-life.

Book Description :

What do you know about your data? And how do you know what you know about your data? Information governance initiatives address corporate concerns about the quality and reliability of information in planning and decision-making processes. Metadata management refers to the tools, processes, and environment that are provided so that organizations can reliably and easily share, locate, and retrieve information from these systems. Enterprise-wide information integration projects integrate data from these systems to one location to generate required reports and analysis. During this type of implementation process, metadata management must be provided along each step to ensure that the final reports and analysis are from the right data sources, are complete, and have quality. This IBM® Redbooks® publication introduces the information governance initiative and highlights the immediate needs for metadata management. It explains how IBM InfoSphereTM Information Server provides a single unified platform and a collection of product modules and components so that organizations can understand, cleanse, transform, and deliver trustworthy and context-rich information. It describes a typical implementation process. It explains how InfoSphere Information Server provides the functions that are required to implement such a solution and, more importantly, to achieve metadata management. This book is for business leaders and IT architects with an overview of metadata management in information integration solution space. It also provides key technical details that IT professionals can use in a solution planning, design, and implementation process.

Book Description :

Managing Data in Motion describes techniques that have been developed for significantly reducing the complexity of managing system interfaces and enabling scalable architectures. Author April Reeve brings over two decades of experience to present a vendor-neutral approach to moving data between computing environments and systems. Readers will learn the techniques, technologies, and best practices for managing the passage of data between computer systems and integrating disparate data together in an enterprise environment. The average enterprise's computing environment is comprised of hundreds to thousands computer systems that have been built, purchased, and acquired over time. The data from these various systems needs to be integrated for reporting and analysis, shared for business transaction processing, and converted from one format to another when old systems are replaced and new systems are acquired. The management of the "data in motion" in organizations is rapidly becoming one of the biggest concerns for business and IT management. Data warehousing and conversion, real-time data integration, and cloud and "big data" applications are just a few of the challenges facing organizations and businesses today. Managing Data in Motion tackles these and other topics in a style easily understood by business and IT managers as well as programmers and architects. Presents a vendor-neutral overview of the different technologies and techniques for moving data between computer systems including the emerging solutions for unstructured as well as structured data types Explains, in non-technical terms, the architecture and components required to perform data integration Describes how to reduce the complexity of managing system interfaces and enable a scalable data architecture that can handle the dimensions of "Big Data"

Book Description :

Do your business intelligence (BI) projects take too long to deliver? Is the value of the deliverables less than satisfactory? Do these projects propagate poor data management practices? If you screamed “yes” to any of these questions, read this book to master a proven approach to building your enterprise data warehouse and BI initiatives. Extreme Scoping, based on the Business Intelligence Roadmap, will show you how to build analytics applications rapidly yet not sacrifice data management and enterprise architecture. In addition, all of the roles required to deliver all seven steps of this agile methodology are explained along with many real-world examples. From Wayne Eckerson’s Foreword I’ve read many books about data warehousing and business intelligence (BI). This book by Larissa Moss is one of the best. I should not be surprised. Larissa has spent years refining the craft of designing, building, and delivering BI applications. Over the years, she has developed a keen insight about what works and doesn’t work in BI. This book brings to light the wealth of that development experience. Best of all, this is not some dry text that laboriously steps readers through a technical methodology. Larissa expresses her ideas in a clear, concise, and persuasive manner. I highlighted so many beautifully written and insightful paragraphs in her manuscript that it became comical. I desperately wanted the final, published book rather than the manuscript so I could dog-ear it to death and place it front-and-center in my office bookshelf! From David Well’s Foreword Extreme Scoping is rich with advice and guidance for virtually every aspect of BI projects from planning and requirements to deployment and from back-end data management to front-end information and analytics services. Larissa is both a pragmatist and an independent thinker. Those qualities come through in the style of this book. Extreme Scoping is a well-written book that is easy to absorb. It is not full of surprises. It is filled with a lot of common sense and lessons learned through experience.
