DATA DISCOVERY

The ability to understand the structure of the data that you have seems to be an obvious requirement, so why is it often so difficult?

There are many reasons why organisations don’t understand their data structures in as much detail as they need and data centric projects will often highlight these failings.

Infosphere Discovery from IBM identifies and documents what data you have, where it is located and how it’s linked across systems by intelligently capturing relationships and determining applied transformations and business rules. This will accelerate projects and reduce risks by giving you a holistic view of data relationships across heterogeneous sources.

Discovery will allow you to accelerate the time to achieve value for critical initiatives like data integration, governance and archiving. It will define the business objects that serve as essential inputs into data centric projects by capturing the standard database relationships and discovering the complex associations that are typically hidden from view. This can be used to identify the complex transformation rules applied to populate a warehouse or prototype and test source to target data mappings for application consolidation and master data management.
