Data Governance

It's been a while I wrote an Information technology related article: I have been in Information technology especially in data field for so many years. In this era of data breaches, General Data Protection (GDP) is a must and GDP Regulation (GDPR) is moving forward at fast pace and will be enforced by May, 2018 by the European Union, Unions and Countries are mandating the data protection and even taking up a notch including enormous fine and even jail time for not compliant with GDP . 

 Data Availability, Data Usability, Data Consistency, Data quality, Digital Data Rights for people, General Data Protection, General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR Compliance, Data Security, Data Audits, Security Audits, Encrypted Data, Identification are the key points to take into serious consideration in the immediate future of any business that uses DATA as their main component (which is now every organization and business in this DATA Age).

DATA Governance Office must be integral part of every organizations and businesses that will provide these key components of DATA GOVERNANCE PROCESS and will include DATA STEWARDS, DATA Architects, Database Administrators, DATA Scientists, Information technologist, Business Analysts, Solution providers, Data stakeholders also should take part in GDP activities for better compliance that starts from the smallest piece - DATA ELEMENT. 

 Best practiced robust DATA Governance is must for every organization because it will protect them from so many data related challenges and complex data related issues. DATA Governance should be implemented using the best available tools as it requires every member of the organization to participate and protect. Organizations and businesses need to adopt, evolve, maintain and mature their DATA Governance and be ready for General Data Protection to remain successfully in the business in very near future. 

 From the smallest component - DATA ELEMENT to complete DATA Governance, complete governance solutions is required and experienced DATA management and governance people, companies and tools  can make the compliance easy and simplified. 

One such company with  most features of DATA GOVERNANCE and cost effective best tools is:



Visit and communicate with them for Data Governance and  compliance and see how they can simplify the process and how you can benefit.

Water- Save and Conserve

Conserve Water

We need to conserve water as much as we can.

Already we are paying high price for water.

Water is  causing disputes in between countries and inside countries.

It is getting worse and worse for poor people for access to good potable water.

Human Race is depleting water resources at an alarming rate.

My Love for water research and water environments.

Improper and poor water management already have started water disputes between states in India. It have even influenced to move IPL cricket games. Hoping and praying for good resolution on this.

Nasa machine creating rains: Hopefully everyone gets the fundamental necessity water Save and conserve water for future generations.

Devastating Hurricanes

Charley, Frances, Ivan.....
were some of the hurricanes I experienced as a Floridian. While waiting for IRMA to pass through Florida as an Environmental Scientist I want to mull about few environmental issues

During  thunderstorm Fay I wrote about my experience, It scared me and now we are facing more powerful storm Irma. I hope and pray for people in it's path.

These strong oak tree branch is no match for strong hurricane such as IRMA.

They easily break away and can be very dangerous projectile.

Some of us deny that there is human induced climate change and we don't need to worry about it. These disasters are natural rather than human made. Yes I agree these are natural disasters. But I want to point out that we have increased the power of these, The more the temperature of water,  the more storm intensity, Also we have affected the coastal areas (coastal flora is gone) and built high rises on the edge of the beach. So when it hits, we have very high damages,

Sea Level Fingerprints - Visual Image.
I had opportunity to teach little kids about climate change and how it affects humans using a simple model

and work with lead scientists. The above picture is a simple model and the below picture is a real damages from Google Images search (coastal areas after hurricane IRMA):

This is the truth. 

Now we are at a point that we have to curtail the pollutants for the benefit of future generations. We cannot afford high category storms. For our part, we will be working on simple methods such as planting trees which would act as a sink for CARBON DIOXIDE and create awareness on this issue. So please act wisely and think about these deadly hurricanes whenever you have a better and alternative choice. 

Now we have planes that fly through the eye of Hurricane and get more and more data.
Hopefully with all the big data, powerful computer systems and softwares we can accurately predict the hurricane paths in the future.

Praying for millions in the hurricane IRMA's path. 
Devastation by Maria on Islands is more heartbreaking.

Earlier Blog: Trees are important

Plant trees as much as you can.
You can place an earthen pot half buried near it and pour water. This oldest drip irrigation (watering) technique helps trees grow. .I recently read that used glucose dripping bottles are being reused for watering the plant and they act as a very good drip irrigation tool.

Alcohol Evil , Tamil Nadu, THEEYAVAI THEENDATHEY Tamil Book, Tamil Learning

Alcohol is Evil - It is number one killer. This evil has caught up in TamilNadu. Sad that youngsters are into it - because of the government sponsored TASMAC. It has rooted heavily in TamilNadu and it is very very sad that people die at very young age due to this evil.

In every Tamil movie they play that alcohol is evil and should be avoided, but the scene in the movie is that - the boys are drinking and smoking. I hope and pray that this changes soon. It has come to a point that someone should create awareness of this Arackan (Evil). I have been writing in my blogs about the bad things (mainly health issues) that occur.

Published book (2016) on "THEEYAVAI THEENDATHEY" in Tamil lyrics

This book should be read by everyone in TamilNadu especially children. It should be given in every school in TamilNadu, so that young minds will get the needed and necessary awareness that is needed to avoid alcoholism. The book is also highly illustrated so that kids understands them very easily.
Here are some experts from the book from front cover to back Cover.
