As more and more data pours into the office of the CFO, experts say, minimizing its complexity and maximizing its usefulness becomes critical. “The amount of data is phenomenal,” says Mr. Whitehead of Airbus Defence and Space, “but what’s worse is the lack of harmonization. Unstructured data is what kills you. The key for me is how to have clear data in a usable and consistent form, which can be turned into succinct information the business can look at, understand where the value chain is, and make decisions.”
Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets.
What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.

Les organisations engagées dans un processus de transformation numérique sont davantage préoccupées par des questions liées au risque et à la sécurité, ce qui n’a rien de surprenant. Les initiatives de transformation numérique entraînent inévitablement une augmentation du nombre de points d’accès à l’infrastructure de l’entreprise qui se situent en dehors des contrôles existants et sont accessibles par des identités plus nombreuses et plus variées qui prolifèrent à l’intérieur d’une infrastructure distribuée et dynamique.
Learn from this TDWI paper how right-sized information governance can improve the success of data warehousing or big data analytics initiatives, and how a chief data officer can help organizations to appreciate the value of data and its importance to their decisions and operations.
Cybercrime is more sophisticated and dangerous than ever before, and the scope of newly emerging threats is unprecedented.
At the same time, the growing number and diversity of endpoints in the enterprise is expanding the network edge to the point of disappearing. Both these trends will continue with ongoing bring your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives and explode with the emerging Internet of Things (IoT).
In today’s complex and distributed IT environments, identity and access management (IAM) programs do much more than simply manage user identities and grant access. They are at the core of achieving critical business objectives that are relevant to every high-performing organization. As a result, there are few IT or security initiatives that demand as much deliberation and scrutiny.
The framework presented here is a way to avoid data dysfunction via a coordinated and well-planned governance initiative. These initiatives require two elements related to the creation and management of data:
• The business inputs to data strategy decisions via a policy
• The technology levers needed to monitor production data
based on the policies.
Collectively, data governance artifacts (policies, guiding principles and operating procedures) give notice to all stakeholders and let them know, “We value our data as an asset in this organization, and this is how we manage it.”
Create an environment where employee and managers can track assigned activities, communicate job performance expectations, and define goals that are aligned to business objectives. Performance management ensures that everyone is focused on the right initiatives to deliver results.
There is a noticeable shift occurring in the world of order management. Traditionally, projects related to order-taking were spearheaded by the customer service department. Not anymore. The pressures of today’s global economy have forced supply chain functions to play a more direct and strategic role in reducing costs, improving the customer experience, and driving added value throughout the organization. Naturally, supply chain leaders now have a significantly higher rate of interest and involvement in order management initiatives.
Supply chain leaders work in a competitive environment, and in order to get ahead of the competition, they are increasingly turning to order processing automation solutions.
