How Automation Can Improve Data Integrity and the Productivity of Data Stewards
Data-driven enterprises continue to invest heavily in data management technology. But how do these investments benefit the people responsible for data accuracy and use. Data stewards charged with building accurate bills of material for manufacturing, rolling up annual financial data from diverse ERP systems, and curating product and pricing data for new product launches or seasonal go-to-market campaigns still rely heavily on spreadsheets to manipulate the data needed for these initiatives.
Taking data from various business applications and databases, populating spreadsheets, manipulating those spreadsheets to structure the data that’s needed, then repopulating the original business applications introduces many opportunities for error. A simple solution is to automate the extraction, manipulation and repopulation of data using tools that also validate data before it’s committed for use.
Fortunately, a new approach to self-service data integrity automation has emerged. Please join Carl Lehmann, Senior Research Analyst at 451 Research | S&P Global Market Intelligence, Andrew Hayden, Senior Product Marketing Manager, and Charles Howard, Senior Product Manager from Precisely who will discuss:
- What’s driving the need for enterprises to become more data-driven
- The challenges associated with data manipulation and integrity management
- How to automate data curation, validation, integrity, and integration
Attendees will learn the industry trends and technology needed to improve the productivity and value of data stewards, and how automation can simplify and speed the manipulation and integrity of complex data sets.
