Enabling Data Governance with Oracle Enterprise Data Quality

Data Governance is one of those terms in the IT ecosystem with a pretty nebulous definition. It can mean different things to different people and depending on who you ask it's as simple as extra monitoring of your business process with some additional auditing for IT processees.  On the other hand, it can be defined as the point where data quality, data management, data policies, business process management, and risk management converge in terms of the handling of data in an organization.  Data Quality is an important component of Data Governance, for that matter to any type of IT initiative - Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing or Master Data Management, and enables organizations do a better job of governing their data in the following ways:

  • Brings clarify and transparency to data
  • Ensures high data quality for enterprise IT systems that need it
  • Provides data control and standardization

Oracle Enterprise Data Quality is a data quality solution that handles both customer and product data and has unique approaches geared to handling the unique characteristics of each data domain.  In addition, it plays an important role in helping organizations manage data quality as part of data governance projects by ensuring that data of poor data quality is cleansed, standardized and ready to meet compliance mandates, there by making sure that "dirty data" does not cascade throughout the enterprise and infiltrate IT systems.  Join us on a webcast on this very topic - October 27, 2011 at 10 AM PT and learn how Oracle Enterprise Data Quality can help give you the tools you need to drive your Data Governance projects forward to completion.  Register today for this webcast.

Discover What's Coming Up at OpenWorld on Data Integration

Our world is overloaded with information, unfortunately stored typically in silos that hide the big picture businesses need to move forward. Data Integration technology helps bring the pieces together from disparate systems across the enterprise and see the complete picture to make more informed decisions. That’s why data integration is a key ingredient to be able to find innovative solutions for today’s never-ending business and IT challenges.

For the same reason, one of our key tracks at Oracle OpenWorld is dedicated to Data Integration.   The Data Integration track covers multiple topics, as the technology is tightly integrated with many different areas including data warehousing, system migration/consolidation, data quality, data synchronization for high availability, application integration, Cloud computing, and MDM. The track brings 26 sessions joined by over 20 customers and partners, 12 Demo Pods, and 6 Hands-on-Labs to OpenWorld attendees.  

The most exciting part of this year’s Data Integration track is the customers that will present how they leverage Data Integration products including Oracle Data Integrator, Oracle GoldenGate and Oracle Enterprise Data Quality to improve their business and IT operations.

What’s New in the Data Integration Market?

Data integration is essential to many strategic IT initiatives including master data management (MDM), modernization, and service-oriented architecture (SOA). That’s why it is not surprising that the data integration market continues to grow in its size, importance and impact on enterprise information systems. The technology has evolved from simple extract, transform, and load (ETL) procedures to include real time data movement, bi-directional replication/synchronization along with data quality and data profiling and data services.

 The user base for data integration tools has also evolved from low-level technology for developers and DBAs to high-level environments for operations staff, data stewards, business analysts and enterprise architects. In short, what was once merely the background “plumbing” underlying our information systems now influences just about every aspect of IT, and touches just about every type of stakeholder.

 In a new white paper we have examined the state of the data integration market including the trends in business intelligence, data warehousing, data quality, consolidation, cloud computing and IT modernization initiatives that are driving data-intensive projects. You can access this brand new white paper along with other data integration focused white papers and resources here.
