Data Management Tools and Techniques for Successful Businesses

What if your business was missing something crucial to your success?

It's tempting to focus primarily on sales and marketing when it comes to your business. But in our increasingly data-driven world, it is equally important that you know how to manage data in an efficient way. Solid data management can ultimately mean the difference between a successful company and one that completely implodes.

To improve your management game, we've rounded up the most effective data management tools and techniques. Keep reading to discover what you need to do to have a more successful business!

Oracle Data Management Suite

When you want data management tools, you probably don't want to gather a bunch of unrelated apps. After all, it's more convenient when you have one app that can do just about everything.

And that is the Oracle Data Management Suite in a nutshell. As the name implies, you get an entire suite of tools to help you gather, manage, and deliver data across your entire enterprise. Ultimately, this tool helps with compliance, collaboration, change awareness, and so much more.

Once you try Oracle, there is little chance you will look back and try anything else!


Is your business having trouble managing and integrating data? In that case, Panoply may be the solution you have been looking for.

Panopoly is designed as a cloud-native ETL tool and data warehouse. We are particularly fond of the intuitive dashboard that makes Panoply easy to use for everyone from the tech expert to the least tech-savvy person in the room.

You'll quickly fall in love with the data visualization and analytics options. And little touches like the in-browser SQL editor really set Panoply apart from the competition.

SAP Data Management

Data management solutions are often way too complex for their own good. If you've been wanting a versatile tool that still manages to keep things simple, though, then it's time to check out SAP data management.

From a single point, SAP allows you to access data that is structured, unstructured, transaction, or analytical. And the built-in metadata management tools make data management easier and more intuitive than you ever imagined.

Like some other solutions on this list, SAP Data Management also makes good use of the cloud. This makes the tool easier to use while keeping your costs down, which is great news for smaller businesses.

Amazon Web Services

Love them or hate them, but Amazon has served as a real industry leader when it comes to managing and implementing data collected from users. And you can get a taste of some of that functionality and potential with Amazon Web Services.

Basically, this is a collection of data management services meant to make your life a lot easier. For example, Amazon Glacier helps you with storage and backup needs, and Amazon QuickSight helps with things like data visualization.

Honestly, this is just scratching the surface of the different tools available to you from Amazon Web Services. Embracing AWS can be a real game-changer for your business!

Microsoft Master Data Services

Microsoft Master Data Services is more than a single solution. When it comes to data management, using Microsoft is like being the kid who asks the genie for "infinite wishes" after rubbing the magic lamp.

This suite of services offers SQL Server database technology to give you powerful back-end processing. And the creative use of the Windows Communication Feature makes this suite very intuitive to use.

But what we love most about Microsoft are the very specialized solutions you get. Microsoft Azure Data Factory makes data integration look like child's play, and Microsoft Power BI lets even the smallest companies benefit from the analytics that power the biggest businesses in your industry.

Dell Boomi

As far as names go, "Dell Boomi" may sound a little stranger than the other data management tools on this list. But that strange name is masking one of the most versatile tools you will ever use!

Dell Boomi takes advantage of the cloud to keep your costs low and present a variety of intuitive tools. For example, you can condense your various applications and data sources into a single IT landscape. And you can automate manual processes your business relies on each day, helping you to save countless hours of time (and therefore money) each year.

Long story short? If you want something that can send productivity through the roof, you'll be very happy with Dell Boomi.

Google Cloud

Many different companies take advantage of the benefits offered by the cloud. But with Google Cloud, everybody's favorite tech giant may just have perfected what the cloud can do.

You get a Data Studio to help you construct an intuitive dashboard, complete with a beautiful GUI. And you can take advantage of BigQuery analytics to assist with all of your SQL-style queries.

The Cloud DataLab will take your data science to the next level. And Cloud Data Transfer makes it easy for you to move valuable data back and forth to see what you can discover.

Finally, Google Cloud makes it easy for you to connect to a variety of popular BI tools. So if you're already using tools such as Charito and Tableau, then you'll be able to hit the ground running with Google Cloud.
