Introduction to entity resolution and strategies for identity management for MDM
8:30am 9:00am 12:00pm Dr. John R. Talburt, IQCP, CDMP, Professor of Information Science, University of Arkansas at Little Rock

The inability to properly integrate the same information coming from multiple sources is one of the leading causes of poor data quality in an organisation. Whether it is the failure to recognize the same customer making transactions through different sales channels or to aggregate sales of the same product, the negative impact on business can be significant. This tutorial provides an introduction to current practices for data matching, record linking, and identity management etc. that are foundational to building an effective strategy to improve data integration and managing master data. Major topics include: » » » » » » Four major types of entity resolution architectures Creating and analysing matching rules for record linking Strengths and weaknesses of commonly used approximate match algorithms Resolution algorithms and strategies for improving performance How to maintain persistent master data identifiers Evaluating and monitoring entity resolution results

Workshop B:

Data quality in the financial services industry

Registration: Workshop starts: Workshop ends: Facilitated by:

With the convergence of business-driven needs, the demands of the trending armada of compliance and regulatory reform and the increasing global distribution of commercial activities, the necessity for timely, complete and accurate data (quality data) has never been greater or more at the forefront of the executive conscience. Unfortunately these forces have placed a multi-million-lumen spotlight on the systemic lack of data quality in the financial services industry. With the US directed drive to market transparency and financial stability monitoring, the Office of Financial Research recently noted that without access to quality data, financial research is like a theory without facts. The focus of this workshop will be on: » » » » » » Definition of data related best practice for the financial services industry The gaps between theory and reality What we can / must do to close those gaps Providing facts through managing data as part of a business supply chain Developing technological enablement Widening the deployment of data standards

Workshop C:

This workshop will cover: » » » » How to create an appropriate (in context) definition of data quality and why it is important to have such a definition Methods for detection, correction and prevention How to create, sell and market the ‘data quality plan’ in the organisation Select case studies - what were the problems, what approaches were used, what were the results?

SharePoint is a popular solution for business collaboration. It is very flexible, scalable and allows easy integration with other systems in the organisation. But all those benefits may bring information chaos, poor data quality and frustration if the SharePoint solution was not properly architected, if there are no governance and compliance policies in place and if there is lack of technical resources. So when we do information architecture properly, implement governance, integrate different important systems into common user interface provided by SharePoint - we will see increase in efficiency, user satisfaction, data quality and return on investment. In this workshop you will learn: » » » » » SharePoint information architecture principles A governance approach Ways to integrate SharePoint with external systems The business intelligence side of SharePoint Benefits and limitations of some key features of SharePoint platform
