Recommendations on privacy, data access and compliance

Recommendations on privacy, data access and compliance
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-02-08


In my last post, I discussed how Amazon is able to have its cake and eat it too. The company has managed to resolve the conundrum facing many organizations around privacy, data access, speed and trust.Of course, few organizations can do what Jeff Bezos' company can. Today I'll cover some privacy and data-access considerations for the non-Amazons of the world.Without further ado, consider the following...(Read More)

When privacy and compliance collide with the need for speedy access to data

When privacy and compliance collide with the need for speedy access to data
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-02-02


More than ever, speed kills.Don’t believe me? Consider the following:In this two-part series, I'll look at how the need for speed affects organizations' privacy and compliance efforts. Today I'll frame the problem.I'll be the first to admit that there's an inherent tension among speed, compliance, privacy and trust. After all, it often takes time to obtain permission to do things with customer,...(Read More)

Balancing privacy concerns for analytics design

Balancing privacy concerns for analytics design
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-01-27


I've been working on a pilot project recently with a client to test out some new NoSQL database frameworks (graph databases in particular). Our goal is to see how a different storage model, representation and presentation can enhance the usability and ease of integration for master data indexes and entity data repositories.It's relatively easy to install an evaluation version of a data management...(Read More)

Governing data acquisition

Governing data acquisition
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-01-21


As the application stack supporting big data has matured, it has demonstrated the feasibility of ingesting, persisting and analyzing potentially massive data sets that originate both within and outside of conventional enterprise boundaries. But what does this mean from a data governance perspective?Most aspects of data governance for internally created data sets are not significantly impacted. Because...(Read More)

Where challenge and opportunity collide: Big data meets data governance

Where challenge and opportunity collide: Big data meets data governance
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-01-15


I'm old enough to remember the days before the explosions of social media, the web, smartphones and data. Upon graduating from college and even grad school in the mid-'90s, organizations could effectively monitor how their employees used enterprise information. Whether or not they achieved that objective, though, was another matter altogether.When I reminisce on that quaint era, I'm both a little...(Read More)

The yin and yang of better data and analytics

The yin and yang of better data and analytics
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-01-09


What are the most useful skills a data quality leader can possess?As an editor of an online data quality magazine, I naturally get asked this type of question regularly at events and meetups. My answer may surprise some who are expecting a data-centric response. I firmly believe that sales and marketing are the most useful (and overlooked) skills of a data quality leader.The reason I give this answer...(Read More)

Data privacy in a mobile world

Data privacy in a mobile world
Written by Sam Gardner on 2017-01-03


It's no overstatement to say that smartphones have changed just about everything. Cases in point include:And we're just getting started.It would be folly to claim that smartphones only solve problems. To be sure, they cause or exacerbate many others. Perhaps privacy deserves to be at the top of that list, but how does an organization strike a balance between usefulness and ickiness here?It's an...(Read More)

Importance of metadata – Bridging the gap (Part 4: analytical metadata usage)
Written by Sam Gardner on 2016-12-28


In the previous three blogs in this series, we talked about what metadata can be available from source systems, transformation and movement, and operational usage. For this final blog in the series, I want to discuss the analytical usage of metadata.Let’s set up the scenario. Let's imagine I'm a new person hired to create some analysis on customers, products and revenue. Where would I look for...(Read More)

Linking identifiers for improved analytics

Linking identifiers for improved analytics
Written by Sam Gardner on 2016-12-22


In my last post we started looking at the issue of identifier proliferation, in which different business applications assigned their own unique identifiers to data representing the same entities. Even master data management (MDM) applications are not immune to this issue, particularly because of the inherent semantics associated with the assignment of the identifier to the class of entity to be managed.I...(Read More)
