Our readers have spoken. Since we started publishing this blog in November 2013, we’ve been steadily gaining traction with our target audience: companies and people who partner with Dun & Bradstreet to improve data quality for their customers — across platforms and processes.
Below are our five most-read posts from 2014 — just in case you didn’t catch them the first time around. We think they offer a little something for everyone. Your comments are welcome!
D&B’s Murray Kieffer was thrilled to have so many folks from Sugar’s VAR network sign up with D&B AllianceNetwork. It gives our shared customers a great support network to help implement D&B for Sugar, a native integration of D&B real-time Data as a Service (DaaS) with SugarCRM.
Big Data and Cloud expert Lynn Langit distills years of consulting experience into a list of four things not to do when starting a Big Data Project. Spoiler alert: It’s all about data quality.
What does D&B DaaS offer information workers? D&B’s Ronak Parikh describes how people can use the D&B DUNS Number to link to multiple data sets available through the D&B Data Exchange.
Ginger Tulley writes about a new Business Verification app for Excel 2013 that lets users access D&B data from within their spreadsheets. This great demo from Lynn Langit shows sales and marketing folks how to get started.
D&B’s Vimal Vel wrote from the Gartner MDM Summit in Las Vegas last year, arguing in favor of a federated model for master data management (MDM) systems, so corrected data flows simultaneously through the MDM system and satellite applications like CRM and ERP.
A huge thanks to all our contributors for such great posts.
