Conventional wisdom suggests that a centralized function for managing access to data provides economies of scale while providing trustworthy oversight of the quality and usability of that data. In today’s world, there is a need to allow the business to be agile, with increased business control of information enabling greater freedom in analysis. The increasing need of business users for speed and agility also requires a higher degree of speed and agility in IT that can be achieved by automating trivial tasks.
At the same time, unhindered data access can lead to ungoverned practices that can introduce inefficiencies and inconsistencies. In this talk, we explore ideas for information integration that balance information governance with business agility to more quickly respond to business needs. Policy‐based parameters for data access can balance control vs. governance, which enables automation of information integration that empowers the business users. Business rules-based approaches retain the governance perspective, yet enable flexibility in business-directed, scalable data access in both performance and breadth of scope for analytical applications.
