Companies today are faced with managing a data explosion - the amount, complexity and importance of enterprise information is growing at an exponential rate. Without a complete understanding of how that information is defined, managed and consumed, an organization’s ability to optimize business performance and meet external compliance reporting demands is severely undermined.

This session will provide a step by step guide to:

    a) collect and manage a set of business terms (glossary);
    b) easily import a set of data from data models; and
    c) link terms to data – all from the cloud.

Once data is linked to business terminology, users can get greater insight into how the business uses data and answer questions like:

    a) where is my data stored?;
    b) how much data duplication do I have? and
    c) who’s responsible for managing the quality of this data?
