PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP 3: REFERENCE DATA MANAGEMENT CONCEPTS AND BEST PRACTICES WORKSHOP

Erik O'Neill, MDM Product Management, IBM

Reference Data Management (RDM) is a relatively new offspring of MDM functionality to provide the processes and technologies for recognizing, harmonizing and sharing coded, relatively static data sets for “reference” by multiple constituencies (people, systems, and other data). Such a system provides governance, process, security, audit control around reference data mastering. The RDM system also manages complex mappings between different reference data representations across the enterprise. Clearly, RDM can be expected to become a "ramp up" point of entry for many organizations planning for Customer, Product master and other domains. Moreover, RDM is a major IT initiative being undertaken by a large number of market-leading global 5000 enterprises. Both as an IT discipline and a commercial off-the-shelf software solution, RDM solutions are being brought to market at an increasing pace. This session provides a full spectrum tutorial on RDM concepts for the MDM and Data Governance professional by discussing:

  • Building the business case for enterprise Reference Data Management
  • Implementing common patterns for Reference Data Management
  • Adopting an MDM approach to managing reference data
