I just attended the last IDEAS conference for DataFlux in Las Vegas, NV. For 10 years this conference has been attended by people hoping to learn more about data management, data governance, master data management and data quality. From now on these conference needs will be met in the larger SAS conference’s data management track. I don’t necessarily think this is all bad. While I will miss the boutique feel of the IDEAS conference, we will now be exposed to all of SAS. For some, you may be thinking — OPEN YOUR MOUTH HERE COMES THE FIRE HOSE! For me, I say YAHOO! More fun to come.

At last week’s IDEAS 2012 closing panel discussion, moderated by Gavin Day, panelists Rich Murnane, Phil Simon, Joyce Norris-Montanari and I were asked to predict trends for 2013. In this blog post, I explain the prediction I made about Small Data and VRM.

It’s that time of year when we look back at the 2012 predictions we made in 2011, and then make our 2013 predictions. Before I shake the dust off of my Magic 8 Ball and peer into the future with the crystal ball I bought at the Dollar Store, let’s revisit my 2012 prediction.

While I’m not planning to run out and see the new movie The Five-Year Engagement (ahh, it seems like it’s a “chick flick,” right?), I can tell you that this year’s IDEAS conference will be the fifth in which I’ve been in attendance. I always look forward to making the trip to see the gang every October and learning tips and tricks from some of the most intelligent folks in the data management industry. The fact the conference is in Las Vegas is certainly very exciting; I can’t help but wonder if anyone from the conference will end up having a Vegas wedding?

I’ve attended the last three IDEAS conferences and, without question, have a learned a great deal at each one. For instance, I learned that no one on earth has a thicker wallet than David Loshin. No one. I’ve learned that Tony Fisher has a great sense of humor and that Jill Dyché…

I am looking forward to attending IDEAS 2012 in October, not only because this will be the tenth anniversary of the conference, but it will also be the fourth consecutive year I have attended (for some strange reason, they keep inviting me back). In this blog post for IDEAS Week on the Data Roundtable, I take a look back at a few of the many good ideas that I have heard at IDEAS.

I have worked on projects that today would be referred to as master data management (as well as customer data integration) for almost twenty years, so I have had some confidence in, over the years, referring to myself as an “MDM expert.” Yet the focus of most of the projects that I had worked on involved record linkage for the sake of data cleansing and resolution, as a way to identify records in different data sets that referred to the same individuals and then merging sets of records together into a single record, effectively combining the data into a single result. More to the point: the essence of the activity was integrating records together.

Welcome to the second installment of my Three Shirts video series, where I debate data management topics with . . . myself.
In this video, I look back at my live singing performance from IDEAS 2010, and perform “Over the Data Governance Rainbow” as an a cappella song and as an old-school rap (yes, you read that correctly).
