Inline XBRL

I recently caught-up with John Turner, who I have worked with in different capacities for many years.  John is a pioneer in XBRL and Chief Executive of CoreFiling.  We were speaking about Inline XBRL plus some of the material that Mike Bergman has championed on MIKE2.0 recently on the Semantic Web and Open SEAS.  The result is a very interesting new article defining Inline XBRL.  I encourage you to read the article in full, which includes the definition of Inline XBRL:

“Inline XBRL provides a formal specification that governs the production of web pages in HTML or xHTML that incorporate XBRL tagging instructions around specific facts commingled inside the HTML markup. The specification allows the unambiguous and standardised transform of Inline XBRL (often shortened to iXBRL) into XBRL.”

Who is responsible for data quality?

A recent survey by Forbes Insights titled “Managing Information in the Enterprise: Perspectives for Business Leaders” found that 79 percent of IT managers say data quality is their responsibility. Interestingly enough, 74 percent of the finance, sales and marketing respondents felt the same way. 

Large enterprises are used to handling job responsibilities within silos, but what happens when the responsibility spans multiple departments?   Could organizations benefit from shared responsibility, or does this just open a can of worms that the company can’t clean up?

Who is really responsible for data quality and what organizational factors dictate a decentralized vs. a centralized approach?

Top 7 Open Source Applications for the Enterprise 

Sourceforge.net estimated that there are 230,000 open source projects on its site till Feb last year. Some of the projects are outdated, some of them do no not provide any support and others are in development phase. So, it is hard to find the right one for your need. I jot down 7 best open source applications after going through different news articles that can be used for enterprise environment.

Tweet Archive: Overboard or Necessary Information Governance?

Interesting news from MSN this week.  The Library of Congress will now house a digital archive of all “tweets” posted from 2006 on.   It’s without a doubt that Twitter is vastly surpassing traditional media sources (I actually heard this news first on Twitter, then cross-checked with MSN), so I can understand the need to document SOME Twitter content as a significant portion of our nation’s history.  However, aside from the mass quantity of junk/spam/viruses/dead links propogated on Twitter daily, and the notion that our nation’s trusted archive will soon become a junk warehouse, there may be a larger issue at hand. 

When it comes to organizations and the need to mitigate employee risk on social networks, have we just lost our delete button?   Is this necessary information governance or a step too far? Read complete post.

SOA Strengthens Master Data Management, MDM Returns the Favor 

Every solid SOA-based infrastructure needs good data, and good data can come from service oriented architecture.

In a new post, Rob Barry makes the case for bringing together the like-minded disciplines of master data management and service-oriented architecture as the most effective to deliver clean, consistent, and timely  data analytics to decision makers in organizations..  Read complete post.

Virtual Insurance: Your Data is Your Business?

Imagine the nightmare of your firm’s data being lost. Imagine, for example, the time it would take to recover if you kept unique copies of client files in your office and they were destroyed by flood or fire. Safeguarding and organizing your information is a mundane yet critical aspect of your business. Clear systems and plans can reduce the cost of storing data, increase the data’s safety, and improve your ability to use this data to increase sales.  The alternatives for a simple and secure information strategy are discussed below.

7 Secrets to Data Virtualization Success 

Historically, seven has been a sacred number. Creation took seven days to complete. To the ancient astronomers, there were seven planets. Pythagoreans revered seven because it was the sum of three and four.

Today’s IT teams responsible for data integration may consider applying the following seven secrets practiced by their enterprise counterparts to make their own advanced data virtualization projects and architectures successful. Read complete post.

Enterprise 2.0: How to Make it Work.

There are heaps of organizational benefits that can be derived from E2.0 adoption, such as:

  •  Increased knowledge transfer
  •  Quicker/cheaper/more efficient access to subject matter experts
  •  Reduced costs of communication, eliminating need for travel
  •  Improved collaboration, accountability/transparency
  •  Reduced time to market for products and services
  •  Improved teamwork and employee recognition/satisfaction

Which are all great, but how often do Enterprise 2.0 adoptions succeed?

Bill Ives writes a great post in response to recent research on Enteprise 2.0 conducted by Early Strategies.  The report, Toward Enterprise 2.0: Making the Change in the Corporation, is based on an online survey conducted between November 2009 and January 2010.  The participants included a primary set of people involved in enterprise 2.0 deployment, and a secondary audience of well-informed users of enterprise 2.0 applications and projects.  The report stated that they mostly belong to CIO/IT (38%), followed by HR (16%), Communications (12%) and Marketing (12%).

A  number of themes for successful enterprise 2.0 adoptions emerged from the data.  Most notable, the following best practices:

The project must plant its roots into the organization’s culture and strategy.

It must support a strategic vision.

It must help improve efficiency of daily work.

Needs to help create a more accurate and up-to-date management model.

The benefits of the project  must be communicated widely during the adoption process.

The project must be transparent so that accountability is clear and continuous improvements are made.

Networking tools (rich directory, profiles, microblogging, forums, tagging) must be deployed  before collaboration tools to maximize sharing and exposure.  

The project must consist of new educational modes: mentoring and collaborative learning tools, to allow the community to improve each one’s participation.

These practices, implemented well, have resulted in greater success rates of E 2.0 projects worldwide.  Can you think of any others that might have a positive impact?

What Can Content Management (ECM) Learn from MDM?

Users have, for years, been using structured and unstructured data in their business process:

  • Construction of businesses (semi structured processes, informal processes, produce a lot of paperwork that has to be interpreted for operational uses that follows – think approval certificates for food processing)
  • Compliance (think nuclear industry and tooling and maintenance requirements
  • Healthcare (think of patient information and the range of medical services, often from independent organizations, that are tied to the patient)

Mitigating Risk to the Enterprise  

As new forms of content and communication are developed, organizations are increasingly faced with a high volume and complexity of information.  Adding to the challenge, the legal and regulatory environment for most enterprises has become more rigorous, imposing significant obligations on all types of content and information channels.  Companies today need to find methods to address these needs if they are to effectively manage risk and discover the true value of the information they hold.
MIKE2.0 is currently working on an open framework for risk management that aims to alleviate some of these organizational concerns:  

Have you tried a similar approach?  What advice can you offer IM professionals who are looking to mitigate legal and regulatory risk while converting information into usable intelligence??

Is Information an Asset or a Resource?  

The overall acceptance of the idea of an MDM program, especially when it is driven by IT strategy, depends on the organizational culture. It is easier to get an organizational and executive buy-in in the organizations that have developed mature policies on their informational assets and data governance practices.
