Eight years ago, I joined a new company. My first challenge was to develop an automated management accounting reporting system. A deep analysis of the existing reports showed us the high necessity to implement a singular reporting platform, and we opted to implement a data warehouse. At the time, one of the consultants came to me and said, “I heard that we might need data management. I don’t know what it is. Check it out.” So I started Googling “Data management”… This book is for professionals who are now in the same position I found myself in eight years ago and for those who want to become a data management pro of a medium sized company.It is a collection of hands-on knowledge, experience and observations on how to implement data management in an effective, feasible and “to-the-point” way.
