Driven by the demands of an always-on global economy, the widespread proliferation of data is combining with an expectation to leverage seamlessly-integrated data in near-real time. However, data integration methods aren't keeping up.

Data has become a disruptive force for global businesses and a catalyst for digital transformation. But data can only be leveraged for BI initiatives to the extent it can be accessed and trusted. And, while today's self-service BI and analytics tools satisfy a user's craving for more "consumerized" technology, they often leave an analyst stuck in neutral because the users, first and foremost, cannot find the data they need to perform any analysis.

Organizational issues such as governance and skills—not technology requirements—are the greatest challenges that IT and corporate managers are facing in the emerging world of big data.

Typically, most applications consist of both batch and online workloads. This is true even today, when most of our attention has turned to online and web-based interaction. Sure, online activities are the most obvious, in-your-face component of countless applications, but batch processing still drives many actions behind the scenes. This can include applying updates, processing reports, integrating input from multiple sources and locations, data extraction, database utility processing, and more.

One symptom of an organization in the middle of a knowledge vacuum is evidenced by SQL that often includes what appears to be extravagant usage of the GROUP BY clause. Writing GROUP BYs here, there, and everywhere becomes a little SQL development dance step, a jitterbug to bypass the issue—moving but not really getting anywhere. Why do these kinds of circumstances exist? Well, maybe the only expert on the involved system has retired and no one else has picked up the torch, so no one is willing to touch the code.

Programming is a literal sport. Code does exactly what it is configured to do, no compromises. When the definition of a task is fuzzy, it is up to the developer to do what they believe is correct. Does the code reflect what is desired? That answer is left open to interpretation. Sadly, developers may not have a clear understanding, and even the users requesting the solution may not be sure. The results can be very painful for an organization. Expectations may not align with the delivered solutions. Users will blame IT; IT will blame users.

As one works through the normal forms, be it a journey to the placid shores of third normal, or the more arid climes of Boyce-Codd normal form, or even the cloudy peaks of fourth normal and beyond—and before one starts thinking about normalizing the design—the database designer has covered a lot of ground work already.
