Talend Cloud & Salesforce Integration

Imagine a horror scenario: your data’s been deleted, stolen, or sold to the highest bidder. Not only is your company at risk, but your most sensitive information about your employees and clients has disappeared. This puts you at risk of losing your reputation, or, at worst: a legal nightmare.

But it’s not just that. If you want to fully leverage and see the most of your return of investment on your digital assets, data governance is a must. And it must be effective.

That’s why data governance is so vital to any modern organization.

What is Data Governance?

Today’s enterprise environment is fast-paced and cutthroat. It seems that we face decisions minute-by-minute that either presents a huge investment opportunity or critical failure. At our fingertips, we have access to countless information—and data. And as organizations, we have the opportunity to dive even deeper and uncover countless crucial data about our clients and customers.

But just because we have the access, doesn’t mean we have the ability.

Learning can be complicated and costly, too. Plus, it needs time that could be better spent elsewhere. In order to not only thrive as a business but survive, we need to adapt.

Data governance is not just information management, and can best be understood by knowing these key facets:

  • Delivery & access: from storing to retrieving, and finally acting on data
  • Integrity: ensuring the accuracy, quality, and veracity of data
  • Lineage: where the data began, where it’s been, and where it’ll go
  • Loss prevention: DLP is ensuring that sensitive data stays in the corporate network, but also controlling who sees it
  • Security: Protection against corruption or unauthorized access to data
  • Synchronization: consistency among different types of data
  • Master management: MDM is the combination of processes, policies, standards, and tools that are used to govern, define and manage data

Salesforce Data Demystified

The importance of data will only continue to grow, as will the access, as will the sensitive nature, as will the need to govern data appropriately.

If your firm has big data or even any critical data, a well-crafted strategy for data governance is fundamental.

So how can you ensure one? Easy: by maintaining a bird’s eye view of your organization and your data. Enter Talend Open Studio, a simple-to-use open source ETL tool, and your data solution.
