Adam White, MDM & Data Governance Specialist, GLOBAL DATA COMPETENCY

Struggling with the key decisions needed to implement an MDM program? Do you know the differences between implementation practices that support the software vendor vs. using best practices for implementation that support your organization? Understanding the difference between MDM implementation styles and how they support your business is critical to knowing what you need when you are looking for an MDM solution to support your master data endeavors. An enterprise needs to understand the purpose of each MDM style and how to identify the MDM style that supports its needs. IT professionals also need to know the critical path to MDM implementation—e.g., what are the main activities needed to support your MDM implementation and which activities are non-essential? How important is SOA architecture to your MDM success? What specific MDM functionality needs to be in place to support your enterprises’ Data Governance and master data plans? Discussion includes these topics:

  • Providing explanations of MDM architecture in terms everyone understands—including business sponsors
  • Understanding the functionality that is supported by each MDM implementation style
  • Avoiding pitfalls that cause MDM implementations to fail such as implementation approaches that cause rework later instead of being foundational
