Enterprise Data Management (EDM) is Crucial to Continued Growth.
As organizations scale up and evolve, the number of IT systems they have increases. An inadequate Enterprise Data Management strategy or poor implementation lowers the consistency, integrity, quality and accuracy of data, in turn stifling growth. Instead of a proper EDM strategy, many organizations still rely on manual process like spreadsheets, email and verbal discussions to govern structural changes across enterprise systems.
Caserta provides assessments, strategy and implementation for effective and flexible EDM. This approach coordinates various segments of your organization in a concerted effort thus eliminating data conflicts and data quality inconsistencies.
What is Enterprise Data Management?
“Enterprise data management (EDM) is an organization’s ability to effectively create, integrate, disseminate and manage data for all enterprise applications, processes and entities requiring timely and accurate data delivery,” according to Technopedia.
Enterprise Data Management is a top business requirement for many organizations. As analytics becomes more valuable to an organization, confidence and trust in data become paramount to an effective business strategy.
Data has become imperative to business growth. In order for your organization to understand its customers and products, or any aspect of your business today, it needs data. When there is friction holding back users from access to data, they will come up with alternative solutions – this has given rise to what we call “shadow IT” and has resulted in copies of data proliferating throughout enterprises, and it is all ungoverned.
A crucial component of any newly designed reference architecture is a pragmatic amount of data governance. Caserta approaches the design and implementation of data governance components as an integral part of the overall enterprise solution, implemented with proven methods and best practices for enterprise data architectures. Caserta is a leader in this area, leveraging our experience to define new best practices for the industry as technologies and datasets evolve.
Caserta originated the concept of the “Enterprise Data Pyramid”, actively being adopted as a standard for implementing modern data platforms that leverage the concept of “tunable governance”, also a Caserta concept.
Implementing an Enterprise Data Management Strategy Is a Key Step for Data-Centric Businesses
An effective enterprise data management strategy prevents organizational issues and conflicts resulting from the mismanagement of data. A single system, which links all your organization’s critical data, leads to a more streamlined and efficient workplace.

A successful enterprise data management reduces data warehouse errors by prioritizing the quality of your data. This approach also helps to ensure the integrity and reliability of your master data, minimizing costly adjustments and inaccuracies further down the line.
Enterprise Data Management Challenges
EDM is challenging for many organizations as it requires many stakeholders, including operations, IT, finance, analysts, strategy, and end-users, to define a clear owner of data. Data quality itself has no intrinsic value; rather it is an enabler of other processes.
As it is hard to find a business case for the data quality, many stakeholders are reluctant to change and align with the other departments. Caserta helps solve this tough EDM challenge by coming into an organization and meeting with all stakeholders for an assessment. After business needs and challenges are completely understood, Caserta quickly gives recommendations on an effective EDM strategy.
