Pearls of Wisdom for Digital Disruptors

I don’t know about you, but when I finish my time at a conference, I often feel a bit let down. Often, I find myself sorting through what I heard or learned, looking for one or maybe two pearls of wisdom. But last week, I was amazed as I took stock of this year’s Informatica World to find that I actually got 10 great pieces of wisdom that could be useful to anyone trying to be digital disruptor at their firm. One thing before, I get started. To protect the innocent, I will only accredit names to those that would be fine with me sharing what they said publically. So let’s get started.

  1. INFA15

    Pearls of Wisdom

    “Businesses are moving from the age of productivity to the age of engagement”, said Sohaib Abbasi. Sohaib’s comment clearly pick up on a recent theme of Geoffrey Moore, but goes further by asserting that enterprises that will have a continuing “right to win” will be in front of all things data. These winners, Sohaib claims, “realize that traditional approaches to data no longer work. This means that they know that they need be to master all things data—transactions, social, and even machine data”. In a retail setting, this means that they not just know a customer’s transactions but what the customer likes and who their friends are.

  2. “The data explosion is here. Winners will take advantage of this change. They will drive tangible benefits for their businesses. The world today is about analytics, interactions, and mobility”.
  3. “We need a new way to think about analytics. Analytics needs to be about fast, smart decisions”,said Tom Davenport. Yet, he said there is a problem with big data? What is next if we continue to call it big data–hellabyte, muchabyte, and lots of byte”?
  4. “Data is now a business driver and we need to treat data as a business asset”. Given this, being a successful digital disruptor requires a “common business vision of what we want to accomplish and a true partnership between the business and IT”.
  5. “There is a supply chain for data. This supply chain is about transforming data so it is at the right place at the right time”, said Narendra Mulani, Senior Managing Director, Accenture Analytics.
  6. “The IoT is a big word—it is a business risk but has the potential to change everything if we have a data strategy to deliver business value”Steven Levitt.
  7. Bill Ford says cars are rolling collections of sensors”, said Tom Davenport. A true Internet of Things?
  8. “We need to embed analytics into the business operating model. Doing so will align organizational process and technology and turn data into an enterprise driver”Paul Barrett, Accenture Analytics.
  9. “GE has determined that data should receive the same care that they build jet engines”, Scott Barber, GE
  10. With data science today, we have the opportunity to create a new age of reason…Democratization of data means that we can create change in our underpants”, said Jake Porway, DataKind.

There are a lot of big ideas in these quotes. Let me, therefore, try to summarize. The goal of enterprise software is changing from increasing productivity to increasing engagement between companies and their employees and companies and their customers. Because of mobility, users are demanding that they have their data now whether it is for small data or big data. And regardless of data type, data has to be great—for this reason, there needs to be supply chain of data. The IoT has to have specific goals to succeed. And increasingly data measurement needs to happen at the business operating model level. So with great data and great data science, the important wins will come through the democratization of data access and data use.

Best Kept Secrets for Successful Data Governance

Best Kept Secrets for a Successful Data Governance

If you’ve spent some time studying and practicing data governance, you would agree that data governance is a challenging yet rewarding endeavor.  Across industries, a growing number of organizations have put data governance programs in place so they can more effectively manage their data to drive the business value. But the reality is, data governance is a complex process, and most companies practicing data governance today are still at the early phase of this very long journey.  In fact, according to the result from over 240 completed data governance assessments on http://governyourdata.com/, a community website dedicated to everything data governance, the average score for data governance maturity is only 1.6 out of 5. It’s no surprise that data governance was a hot topic at last week’s Informatica World 2015.  Over a dozen presentations and panel discussions on data governance were delivered; practitioners across various industries shared their real-world stories on topics ranging from how to kick-start a data governance program, how to build business cases for data governance, frameworks and stewardship management, to the choice of technologies.  For me, the key takeaways are:

  1. Old but still true – To do data governance the right way, you must start small and focus on achieving tangible results. Leverage the small victories to advance to the next phase.
  1. Be prepared to fail more than once while building a data governance program. But don’t quit, because your data will not.
  1. Why doesn't it fit?!One-size doesn’t fit all when it comes to building a data governance framework, which is a challenge for organizations, as there is no magic formula that companies can immediately adopt. Should you build a centralized or federated data governance operation? Well, that really depends on what works within your existing environment.
    In fact, when asked “what’s the most challenging area for your data governance effort” in our recent survey conducted at Informatica World 2015, “Identify roles and responsibilities” got the most mentions. Basic principle? – Choose a framework that blends well with your company‘s culture.
  1. pptLet’s face it, data governance is not an IT project, nor is it about fixing data problems. It is a business function that calls for people, process and technology working together to obtain the most value from your data. Our seasoned practitioners recommend a systematic approach: Your first priority should be people gathering – identifying the right people with the right skills and most importantly, those who have a passion for data; next is figuring out the process. Things to consider include: What’s the requirement for data quality? What metrics and measurements should be used for examining the data; how to handle exceptions and remediate data issues? How to quickly identify and apply security measures to the various data sets?  Third priority is selecting the right technologies  to implement and facilitate those processes to transform the data so it can be used to help meet  business goals.
  1. Business & IT Collaboration“Engage your business early on” is another important tip from our customers who have achieved early success with their data governance program. A data governance program will not be sustainable without participation from the business. The reason is simple – the business owns the data, they are the consumers of the data and have specific requirements for the data they want to use. IT needs to work collaboratively with business to meet those requirements so the data is fit for use, and provides good value for the business.
  1. Scalability, flexibility and interoperability should be the key considerations when it comes to selecting data governance technologies. Your technology platform should be able to easily adapt to the new requirements arising from the changes in your data environment.  A Big Data project, for example, introduces new data types, increased data speed and volume. Your data management solution should be agile enough to address those new challenges with minimum disruption to your workflow.

Data governance is HOT! The well-attended sessions at Informatica World, as well as some of our previously hosted webinars is testimony of the enthusiasm among our customers, partners, and our own employees on this topic. It’s an exciting time for us at Informatica because we are in a great position to help companies build an effective data governance program. In fact, many of our customers have been relying on our industry-leading data management tools to support their data governance program, and have achieved results in many business areas such as meeting compliance requirements, improving customer centricity and enabling advanced analytics projects. To continue the dialogue and facilitate further learning, I’d like to invite you to an upcoming webinar on May 28, to hear some insightful, pragmatic tips and tricks for building a holistic data governance program from industry expert David Loshin, Principal at Knowledge Integrity, Inc,  and Informatica’s own data governance guru Rob Karel.

Get Ready!

Get Ready!

“Better data is everyone’s job” –  well said by Terri Mikol, director of Data Governance at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.  For companies striving to leverage data to deliver business value, everyone within the company should treat data as a strategic asset and take on responsibilities for delivering clean, connected and safe data. Only then can your organization be considered truly “Data Ready”.

Put Yourself Ahead of Digital Transformation Curve – Informatica World 2015

The rapid advancement we are seeing in social, mobile and other digital technologies have transformed the way of our life significantly. My commute to airport for business travel takes three taps on an app on my smart phone and a leading retailer I shop frequently, knows what I like, which product I have put on the cart using my iPad, which products I “liked” on their social channels so they can do real-time recommendations while I am at their physical store. Their employees are now armed with information that is integrated in ways that empower them be more customer-centric than ever before.

All these rapid changes just over a decade are bought to us by companies that pioneered the digital transformation and data is at the center of this revolution. These organizations gained competitive advantage from social, mobile, analytics, cloud, and internet of things technologies. In a world filled with data of different variety, volume and velocity, it’s more important for organizations to become data-ready. While the potential for insight in big data is massive, we need a new generation of Master Data Management to realize all the potential.

In the contrast of this rapid change fueled by data, growing number of companies are realizing that they now have a massive opportunity in front of them. At the centers of this digital transformation is master data that provides an opportunity for organizations to:

  • Better understand customers, their household and relationships so they can do effective cross-sell and up-sell
  • Identify customers interacting with company via different channels so they can push relevant offer to these customers in real time.
  • Offer better product recommendations to customers based on their purchasing and browsing behavior
  • Optimize the way they manage their inventory leading to significant cost savings
  • Manage supplier relationships more effectively so they can negotiate better rate
  • Provide superior patient care and cure harmful deceases at early stage by creating patient-centric solutions that connect health information from more and more sources
  • Master wellhead and other upstream exploration and production assets so they can do better crew allocation and production planning
  • Be compliant to complex and ever changing government regulations leading to significant savings in terms of fines and punishments

We will talk about all this and more at Informatica World 2015 which is happening next week in Las Vegas. Join us for the MDM Day on May 12 followed by Information Quality and Governance track sessions on May 13 and 14. Register now.

We have 37 sessions that cover Master Data Management, Omnichannel Commerce, Data Quality, Data as a Service and Big Data Relationship Management.

Well Answered.


Well Data for Upstream Oil & Gas Companies

Seven steps to clean, trusted and aligned well data.

Is your data ready to help you make the big decisions? “Data and analytics inputs” (37%) just nudged out “my own experience and intuition” (33%) when energy executives were asked as part of PWC’s 2014 Big Decisions survey on what they relied most for the last big decision they made.

But, what about the little decisions? The ones that add up and either create value or contribute to waste, primarily in the area of operational efficiency? It’s important to think about this aspect of decision making too.

In a recent article by Forbes magazine, Tom Morgan, Analyst and Corporate Counsel at Drillinginfo, credits the present stamina of the unconventional plays to efficiency gains. These gains have been as much as 25% and are altering the profitability thresholds for productive wells, changing many of the beliefs on which today’s headlines are focused.

A well’s profitability is driven by multiple variables, including well location, lease terms, number of wells drilled, uptime, partners, resources, and so on. These attributes are monitored and combined to ensure a well reaches its full productive potential. But how do you know if the information you’re depending on is ready to provide the answers you need when you need them?

Given that an unconventional well’s productivity declines after the first 2 years, every decision made in this short timeframe puts the well’s profitability at risk. Approaching bad or incomplete data as a ‘cost of doing business’ can mean millions of dollars in unnecessary waste – per well.

The best strategic and operational decisions stem from clean, trusted, and aligned data. Kudos to the upstream, unconventional teams that are leading the way to exploiting how data is used in the oil & gas industry. The most effective way to ensure your data is decision ready is to adopt these seven steps:

  1. Integrate well information. Bring together fragmented data you expect to be consistent across systems but isn’t.
  2. Evaluate the quality of data. Make sure the information is accurate and complete. If it isn’t, you can see what needs to be fixed.
  3. De-duplicate it. Automatically identify duplicate records and reconcile them into a single well profile.
  4. Enrich it. Enhance well profiles with 3rd party data such as state/local and IHS data.
  5. Validate it. Ensure you can identify the correct well when you need to. (It’s harder than it sounds.)
  6. Relate it. See relationships between wells, assets, associates, suppliers and partners, and the projects they’re associated with.
  7. Deliver it. Fuel business and analytical applications with clean, consistent and connected well information.

As O&G companies look to save on IT costs, they need to look to areas that add value or decrease other costs over the long term. Chris Niven, IDC analyst, sums it up best: “Oil and gas companies need to spend their investments wisely to help them become agile and operationally efficient.”

On Tuesday, May 12, during InformaticaWorld 2015, Devon Energy, a Fortune 500 company, will join other industry innovators during MDM Day. Devon will share how they’re using data virtualization to streamline their data processes and gain efficiencies and insights in the process. Be sure to register here.
