Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Blog. This is going to be the place for us to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions on all aspects of the information quality and data integration world. I intend this to be a forum for discussing changes in the industry, as well as how external forces influence the way we treat our information asset. The value of the blog will be greatly enhanced by your participation! I intend to introduce controversial topics here, and I fully expect that reader input will "spice it up." Here we will share ideas, vendor and client updates, problems, questions and, most importantly, your reactions. So keep coming back each week to see what is new on our Blog!

As more organizations are starting in earnest to consider deploying master data systems, they are also beginning to see where some fundamental issues may block the creation of a full-scale master data repository. This had me thinking about potential ways around some of these issues (especially where governmental regulations prevent moving data across borders!), and one aspect I started considering is the use of a data federation or virtualization model that can abstract the pereption of a unified view without necessarily copying the data.


At the same time, I was approached by Composite Software to do some research on the fesibility of incorporating data quality management techniques within a data virtualization framework. That activity only has continued to pique my interest in integrating virtualization and MDM, and it also allowed me to explore some ideas I explored in my book on data quality management. Meanwhile, the result of that task is an interesting white paper, which you can access via Composite's web site - search down to the "analyst reports" section of the page. Let me know your thoughts!
