EM360: Dataware Series
A podcast series with Scott Taylor and Dan DeMers
Listen to the 3-Part Dataware Podcast Series
How efficiently and quickly are you integrating your data? Are your apps serving your data, or is your data serving your apps? Is your organization suffering from the data trap: when data is attached to each app and managed separately, resulting in numerous copies of data being shared when integration is needed? The purpose of any data solution should be to streamline data management processes; to allow users to access, view and edit the information when and where they need to. When data is unnecessarily copied it not only puts the protection of private data at risk but also makes it difficult to implement data controls.
How many applications does your business have? How many separate systems are isolating your information? Universally accessible data within your organisation is the future of dataware. The ability to generate, store, and distribute data will transform your business, giving you insight into your performance, reception, and efficiency. Notably, the best way to make this move is to do it in small increments. Whether you're a global enterprise or small organisation, sharing your data from each application and essentially de-siloing your software cannot be implemented all at once. Gradually introducing each new process ensures you can evolve your business from the present to the future.
Dataware is applicable to all types of industries. From construction to healthcare, government to retail, dataware allows organisations to collaborate, rather than integrate, their data. The systems have universal application to any organisation that is siloing their data and needs to build this pillar of business intelligence into their business.
