Successful Database Projects Begin with Discovery

Postby sam » Wed Sep 09, 2009 5:26 pm

Successful Database Projects Begin with Discovery
Eric Naiburg, IBM


“You only know as much as you know, but what you don’t know may hurt you”. This statement tends to be true with most database projects today. As applications have evolved into integrated systems, knowing all of the related elements across them is not very easy. Database catalogs don’t contain all relationship information while application logic manipulates data spread across multiple data sources, yet you are responsible for understanding it all. In this session, we will discuss the aspects of Database Relationship Discovery by analyzing the data itself. This session will focus on discovery as part of database projects such as MDM, data warehousing, archiving, test data management and data privacy and how discovery can be used to ensure accuracy and speed implementation of data related projects.

Eric Naiburg is the Product Marketing Program Director for IBM Optim Integrated Data Management Solutions.  Eric has worked in the software development industry for over 15 years and is co-author of UML for Database Design and UML for Mere Mortal both published by Addison Wesley.  Prior to rejoining IBM, he worked for Ivar Jacobson Consulting as VP of Sales and Marketing.  Before joining Ivar Jacobson, he was director of product marketing for CAST Software.  Previously working for IBM, Eric held several roles within the Rational Software group including program director for business, industry and technical solutions, product manager for Rational Rose and team market manager for Rational Desktop Product.  He also spent several years with Logic Works Inc. (Acquired by Platinum Technologies and CA), as product manager for ERwin.
