Business leaders are eager to harness
the power of big data. However, as the
opportunity increases, ensuring that source
information is trustworthy and protected
becomes exponentially more difficult. If not
addressed directly, end users may lose
confidence in the insights generated from
their data—which can result in a failure to
act on opportunities or against threats.
Information integration and governance
must be implemented within big data
applications, providing appropriate
governance and rapid integration from
the start. By automating information
integration and governance and employing
it at the point of data creation, organizations
can boost confidence in big data.
A solid information integration and
governance program must become a
natural part of big data projects, supporting
automated discovery, profiling and
understanding of diverse data sets to
provide context and enable employees
to make informed decisions. It must be
agile to accommodate a wide variety of
data and seamle

Across industries, customers today wield more power and greater choice than ever before – a power that they exercise by shifting their attention and spending (across multiple channels/devices in near-real time) from provider to provider. In this environment of hyper-connectedness and diminishing customer loyalty and fleeting human attention spans, the battle for holding customer interest and engaging him/her meaningfully requires, first and foremost, an everlasting commitment to "relevance. "Being relevant and demand-driven is of paramount importance to the media industry, but it is no less important to any industry that operates in a B2C world. However, adapting to the ever-rising expectations and changing buying behaviors of customers is becoming a Herculean task, requiring both business and technology transformation.
The data-driven organization is the new benchmark for success. Firms that harness data to dictate strategic and tactical decisions companywide make more informed business plans, better optimize operations, improve customer interactions, and provide competitive edge. To achieve these benefits, organizations increasingly see data refinement - transforming raw data from various sources into relevant and actionable information and delivering it through self - service access to any user who needs it - as the path toward success by helping break though immature processes and legacy systems. However, data refinement only functions as well as the strategies and approaches behind it. Organizations that do not understand the right way to embrace refinement will fail to catch up to competitors that have mastered the correct approach.
