Data Standardization and the Business Glossary – The Foundation Stone for Enterprise Data Governance and Business Integration
This session looks at why data standardization is critical to success in enterprise data governance, enterprise information management (EIM), business intelligence and business process integration. It also highlights why Business Glossary technology is central to making data standardization possible. Common data definitions are needed in BI systems, Master Data Management, process data flows as well as information and application services to drive consistency of understanding everywhere. However for data standardization to take root, mass business participation and agreement is needed in creating common definitions. Also IT personnel need to leverage these common definitions to consistently describe data in core systems and infrastructure software. Only one piece of software infrastructure bridges the business/IT gap to provide a common place where that is possible – the business glossary.
