Book Description :

Executing Data Quality Projects, Second Edition presents a structured yet flexible approach for creating, improving, sustaining and managing the quality of data and information within any organization. Studies show that data quality problems are costing businesses billions of dollars each year, with poor data linked to waste and inefficiency, damaged credibility among customers and suppliers, and an organizational inability to make sound decisions. Help is here! This book describes a proven Ten Step approach that combines a conceptual framework for understanding information quality with techniques, tools, and instructions for practically putting the approach to work – with the end result of high-quality trusted data and information, so critical to today’s data-dependent organizations. The Ten Steps approach applies to all types of data and all types of organizations – for-profit in any industry, non-profit, government, education, healthcare, science, research, and medicine. This book includes numerous templates, detailed examples, and practical advice for executing every step. At the same time, readers are advised on how to select relevant steps and apply them in different ways to best address the many situations they will face. The layout allows for quick reference with an easy-to-use format highlighting key concepts and definitions, important checkpoints, communication activities, best practices, and warnings. The experience of actual clients and users of the Ten Steps provide real examples of outputs for the steps plus highlighted, sidebar case studies called Ten Steps in Action. This book uses projects as the vehicle for data quality work and the word broadly to include: 1) focused data quality improvement projects, such as improving data used in supply chain management, 2) data quality activities in other projects such as building new applications and migrating data from legacy systems, integrating data because of mergers and acquisitions, or untangling data due to organizational breakups, and 3) ad hoc use of data quality steps, techniques, or activities in the course of daily work. The Ten Steps approach can also be used to enrich an organization’s standard SDLC (whether sequential or Agile) and it complements general improvement methodologies such as six sigma or lean. No two data quality projects are the same but the flexible nature of the Ten Steps means the methodology can be applied to all. The new Second Edition highlights topics such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, Internet of Things, security and privacy, analytics, legal and regulatory requirements, data science, big data, data lakes, and cloud computing, among others, to show their dependence on data and information and why data quality is more relevant and critical now than ever before. Includes concrete instructions, numerous templates, and practical advice for executing every step of The Ten Steps approach Contains real examples from around the world, gleaned from the author’s consulting practice and from those who implemented based on her training courses and the earlier edition of the book Allows for quick reference with an easy-to-use format highlighting key concepts and definitions, important checkpoints, communication activities, and best practices A companion Web site includes links to numerous data quality resources, including many of the templates featured in the text, quick summaries of key ideas from the Ten Steps methodology, and other tools and information that are available online

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.

Book Description :

To ensure product reliability, an organization must follow specific practices during the product development process that impact reliability. The second edition of the bestselling Product Reliability, Maintainability, and Supportability Handbook helps professionals identify the shortcomings in the reliability practices of their organizations and empowers them to take actions to overcome them. The book begins by discussing product effectiveness and its related functions, presents the mathematical theory for reliability, and introduces statistical inference concepts as ways to analyze probabilistic models from observational data. Later chapters introduce basic types of probability distributions; present the concepts of confidence interval; focus on reliability assessment; and examine software reliability, quality, and safety. Use FMMEA to identify failure mechanisms Reflecting the latest developments in the field, the book introduces a new methodology known as failure modes, mechanisms, and effects analysis (FMMEA) to identify potential failure mechanisms. Shifting to a practical stance, the book delineates steps that must be taken to develop a product that meets reliability objectives. It describes how to combine reliability information from parts and subsystems to compute system level reliability, presents methods for evaluating reliability in fault-tolerant conditions, and describes methods for modeling and analyzing failures of repairable products. The text discusses reliability growth, accelerated testing, and management of a continuous improvement program; analyzes the influence of reliability on logistics support requirements; shows how to assess overall product effectiveness; and introduces the concepts of process capability and statistical process control techniques. New Topics in the Second Edition Include: Failure Modes, Mechanisms, and Effects Analysis Confidence Interval on Reliability Metrics and their Relationships with Measures of Product Quality Process Control and Process Capability and their Relationship with Product Reliability System Reliability, including Redundancy
