MDM to present at DAMA Johannesburg event on how big data changes data integration

Feb 15th, 2019

Gary Allemann, MD at Master Data Management

In a world where information is the new currency, data should always be a priority for business, and the ability to understand and gain insight from data is invaluable. This not only helps organisations understand how the business is performing, but also informs how the business can improve in the future.

Despite the clear evidence of the need for enhanced data and analytics, many enterprises end up with what they see as failed solution implementations. In many cases this can be linked to the lack of a legitimate big data use case.

Join Master Data Management and Synscort, the global leader in Big Iron to Big Data software, at the Johannesburg Data Management Association (DAMA) chapter on ‘How does big data change data integration?’

Taking place on the 20th of February 2019 at Altron in Midrand, discussions will be held on the evolving requirements for data integration in the age of big data. Here, Gary Allemann, Managing Director at Master Data Management will discuss the changing Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) landscape, delving into the following issues:

  • ETL vs CDC – what, when, where and why
  • ETL for the data lake / Hadoop
  • ETL for big iron – connecting legacy platforms to Hadoop
  • ETL for the cloud

Allemann’s talk will be followed by a product demonstration, a Q&A and general discussion will be held.
