IBM Information Management Solutions
The success of any company is becoming more and more dependent on unlocking the value of data and turning it into trusted information for critical decision making. The ability to deliver the right information at the right time and in the right context is crucial. Organizations are bursting with data, yet most executives would agree that they need to improve how they leverage information to preventing multiple versions of the truth, improve trust and control and respond quickly to change.

Perficient helps organizations improve and manage their data integration strategy and solutions. Our experienced teams understand how to inventory fragmented data and information assets, create an integration strategy that aligns with your business philosophy and deploy the tools to align data assets to support business goals. The end result helps organizations dramatically lower costs, boost productivity, and reduce risk by enabling IT to better meet business demands for timely, relevant, trustworthy data.
Perficient provides the knowledge needed to design, launch, and manage successful data governance programs. It doesn’t matter if your organization is a Fortune 2000 company or a small non-profit organization – because data governance is not a hardware or software solution, the principles and process remain the same. Data governance is an organizational strategy and methodology for documenting and implementing business rules and controls around corporate information assets. The goal is to maximize the performance potential of information in order to:
- Increase consistency and confidence in decision making
- Decrease the risk of regulatory fines
- Improve data security
- Improve data quality
- Retain customers
- Drive new business opportunities
Master Data Management
The promise of Master Data Management (MDM) is to provide a single, unified view of an organization. The goal is to gain insights into customers, products, suppliers, inventory and employees. Perficient understands the business goals of MDM and can provide guidance to both IT and business users that gives everyone a sense of ownership and responsibility.
Our MDM teams help clients meet their goals by defining the scope of master data and outlining policies to regulate input and manage system changes. Once these critical definitions and standards are met, Perficient can install, integrate, test, deploy, and train your organization on your MDM solution to ensure you get the most from your investment.
Perficient understands that managing Big Data can be challenging. Managed properly, however, Big Data provides opportunity for insight into emerging data types that can make the business more agile, and to answer questions that, in the past, were beyond reach. Perficient partners with IBM to provide the tools to open the door to a world of possibilities, giving organizations the ability to gain insight from new sources of data such as text, audio, video, social media, log files and more.
