To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety, volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as possible to maximize its value, and integrate it at a more granular level than ever before—focusing on the individual transaction level, rather than on general summary data.
As data volumes continue to explode, clients must take advantage of a fully scalable information integration architecture that supports any type of data integration technique such as extract, transfer and load (ETL), data replication or data virtualization.

Mobile devices have rapidly become ground zero for a wide spectrum of risk that includes malicious targeted attacks on devices
and network connections, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating
systems or apps.

Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data has become a significant force for value and revenue creation.
It is becoming increasingly more obvious that for data to have any real value, it must be in motion. It must flow. “All entities move” Heraclitus added, “and nothing remains still.” These ancient musings have startling relevance to the modern challenges and benefits of Master Data Management (MDM) programs across global enterprises. The entities he referred to were more philosophical in nature, yet it is no coincidence that the entities of our commercial world – customers, vendors, prospects and the relationship between them – are in a constant state of movement and change.
