An Enterprise Pandemic
by Neal A. FishmanEnsure the Reliability of the Data
Service-oriented environments utilize web services to share data more widely and rapidly than ever before. It’s easier than ever for incorrect data to trigger inappropriate actions, prevent urgent actions from being taken, disrupt customer transactions and relationships, generate compliance problems, and damage business performance. Companies need a comprehensive blueprint for ensuring data reliability in their SOA environments. Viral Data in SOA provides that blueprint.
Leading IBM data forensics expert Neal A. Fishman helps you identify the unique challenges of data quality in your SOA environment-and implement solutions that deliver the best results at the lowest cost.
Writing for both business and technical professionals, Fishman shows how to think about data quality on a risk/reward basis...why effective data governance is so important, and how to achieve it...how to evaluate data quality, and overcome its inevitable decay...and, last but not least, how to actually drive a data quality initiative that works.
· Why poor-quality data has become even more dangerous
· Practical solutions for assessing, improving, and sustaining data quality
· Why data governance is so critical-and realistic models for implementing it
· How to instill proactive accountability throughout your data processes
· Proven techniques for evaluating data before, during, and after its use
· Handling persistence and memory-resident databases in SOA environments
· Improving business, system, reference, and “meta” data
· Creating data models that support today’s broader spectrum of applications
· Sustaining data quality through conditioning
· Using systems thinking to limit future data problems and understand the potential ripple effects of data sharing
