A data-driven company requires a clear data integration strategy and a solid data culture. Tech Republic brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “How to create a data integration strategy for your organization.”

Big data and analytics have climbed to the top of the corporate agenda. Together, they promise to transform the way companies do business, delivering the kind of performance gains last seen in the 1990s, when organizations redesigned their core processes. And as data-driven strategies take hold, they will become an increasingly important point of competitive differentiation. Developing a strategy for integrating data across your organization helps ensure that everyone has access to the most up-to-date data in a secure way. 

Good metadata management is the key to addressing challenges and seizing opportunities associated with the rise of big data, sprawl of data fabrics, and complexities of data governance. Data governance is the specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to ensure the appropriate behavior in the valuation, creation, consumption, and control of data and analytics.
