Join Alan Simon for an in-depth discussion in this video Build a scorecard, part of Big Data Foundations: Building Architecture and Teams.
- The charter of any enterprise data effort…is going to be something along the lines of…improve the overall quality and usability…of our enterprise data.…However, that's a rather broad statement that by itself…doesn't really provide much guidance…about where the top priority should be…for your particular initiative.…To give you more precise guidance, then,…you can start by building a scorecard that helps you…objectively determine what's going right…in today's data architecture and also, on the other side,…what might not be working quite as well,…and therefore should be a focal point for your efforts.…
You need to track and evaluate…today's data environment, how data is being used…in reports and analytics,…and then how data from those reports and analytics…as well as your operational systems are being used…by employees today.…Your data environment has four different areas…that you can grade:…application databases, traditional data warehouses…and data marts, big data environments,…as well as key spreadsheets and personal databases…
