DAMA-PS NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER

LOOKING AHEAD TO NOVEMBER CHAPTER MEETING


Sanjay ShirudeThis month we are proud to announce that Sanjay Sherude, an international speaker on Data Governance, Master Data Management and Enterprise Data Warehousing, will be speaking this month on "Integrating a New World, Application Integration in the 21st Century World of Mobile, Social, Cloud and Big Data."

For at least two decades, integration has been one of the most powerful approaches to leveraging the value of existing IT assets. By all indications, integration will become even more important in the near future, both for internal and customer-facing processes. Gartner, for example, predicts that spending on integration will increase 33 percent from 2013 to 2016. Not only will the new integration be expected to handle new and unfamiliar data types, it will also be expected to deliver business results in real or near real time. Conventional approaches to integration such as batch-processed ETL will continue to be important, but they will need to be augmented by new technology that can successfully meet these real time demands. This presentation will discuss the new IT landscape as it relates to the new integration, and argue that the need for a comprehensive integration strategy has never been more urgent. This strategy must not only take new data types into account, but also address the more fundamental issue of agility – because whatever the integration needs of an enterprise may be at the moment, they are certain to change rapidly.


At this presentation you will learn:

  • Integrating a New World - The Real Time Reality
  • The External Data Dilemma
  • The Cloud Complication
  • The Consumerization Crunch
  • The Strategy Imperative
  • Incremental Business Value in the Event-Driven Enterprise
  • How Do You Compare to Best Practices?
  • What Do You Have to Win or Lose?
  • Find Out About Your Organization’s Integration Capabilities

LOOKING BACK AT OCTOBER EVENTS


Last month we met at the Microsoft Store in the U-District and heard Ron Fuller on "The Object-Relational Impedance Mismatch and its Impact on Information Quality".

We learned
about the technical, cultural and academic antecedents of bad database design and their impact on information quality; how the object-relational impedance mismatch is also a metaphor for  the unnecessarily conflicting interests of the business and IT, plus how to "do the right thing"  in an unmanaged environment and how to help the business do so, too.
