Dr. Stonebraker’s Seven Tenets of Scalable Data Unification

Turing Award Winner, MIT Professor, and Tamr CTO, Dr. Michael Stonebraker believes real digital transformation must start with clean, accurate, consolidated data sets. The ideas in his new paper, “The Seven Tenets of Scalable Data Unification“, are already driving major changes at GEHPEThomson Reuters, and Toyota.

In Dr. Stonebraker’s own words:

This paper defines the concept and process of data unification and compares different technical approaches to achieving the desired end-state of clean, accurate, consolidated data sets. It then proposes seven tenets that must be considered by data management practitioners who seek to unify large volumes and varieties of data.”
