MAJORDA BEACH (Goa): Manoj Chugh, president (India & SAARC), EMC, called upon the CIOs participating in the CIOL C-Change to have a serious look at the way IT is being re-architected.

Stressing on the need to protect information assets, Chugh said that the CIO is the key custodian of data.

Chugh, who was speaking at the session Data Quality – Strategic Imperative for Enterprise Intelligence, also called upon organizations to re-look at existing IT infrastructures.

“The pressing need is to set up an independent intelligent information infrastructure. When you look at such an infrastructure, it is the ability to move, archive, backup, restore, etc., independent of applications,” he noted.

Concluding his address Chugh asked the participating CIOs to look at an intelligent information infrastructure for business continuity, growth of information and performance to grow.

“We call ourselves the IT industry, but have we focused more on the technology, rather than the information,” asked Chugh.

Ashit Panjwani, director (Marketing), SAS Institute India Private Limited, who also spoke at the session, emphasized on the need to have clean data.

“Please ensure that the data on which the intelligence is going to be created is accurate. Or, do not invest,” he urged the participants.

“Next, it is important to query yourself, whether you required a point solution or a solution best suited for your needs – simple or tactical, strategic,” he sent a clear message.

Panjwani suggested the participants to see beyond business intelligence in terms of forecasting, predictive modeling, and optimization. He stated that data quality was a continuous process that had to be deployed repetitively.
