Data Management Insights
Data Management: The Basics
Data management can often mean the difference between a business that will succeed and one that will drown in too much disorganized information. With high-quality, well-managed data, you can gain a clearer picture of your business. Access the right data when you need it. And make better, more strategic decisions.
From data quality to data integration to master data management, data management solutions help you stop reacting to bad data – and start using your data to make a difference.
What is big data?
For most organizations, big data is the reality of doing business. It’s the proliferation of structured and unstructured data that floods your organization on a daily basis – and if managed well, it can deliver powerful insights.
Imagine being able to analyze data to determine the root cause of failures. Or detect fraudulent behavior before it affects revenue. Implementing the right solutions to make the most of your big data – from data management to analytics – can be key to your business success.
SAS & Hadoop
Organizations with massive volumes of data are turning to Hadoop to extract value from all that information. But what is Hadoop, exactly – and how can it help your organization? Learn how Hadoop is evolving to meet the big data challenges of today and tomorrow. And how you can take advantage of data management, data visualization and analytics to get faster, more meaningful insights from your Hadoop environment.
ETL (extract, transform, load)
Older technologies don't always die out and get replaced with newer technologies. Sometimes they adapt to the times and retain their relevance. That’s what has happened with ETL (extract, transform, load) – a decades-old technology that many organizations still rely on as part of their larger data integration strategy. Learn the history of ETL and how it works, then find out where it fits in a world of big data, Hadoop and streaming.
What is a data warehouse?
With large amounts of data readily available to organizations, the question is no longer how businesses collect it – but how they store it. Data warehouses are a reliable solution. They serve as a repository for data that's been collected and integrated from multiple sources. And unlike data lakes, which store raw data, data warehouses contain data that's consistently formatted so it's ready for analytics or reporting purposes.
