BEST PRACTICES: OVERCOMING COMMON PITFALLS FOR A SUCCESSFUL MDM IMPLEMENTATION

Anthony Vitale, Vice President - Information Technology Group, JDA SOFTWARE

JDA Software is an American software and consultancy company providing supply chain management, manufacturing planning, retail planning, store operations and collaborative category management solutions.  Subsidiary companies include such notable software brands as RedPrairie, i2 Technologies, Manugistics, E3, Intactix, and Arthur.  In this session, you will hear a real-life example of how a fast growing $1B+ software firm applies MDM to transform the systems landscape for its 4,800+ employees who are engaged in the design and delivery of next-generation customer-facing and back-office solutions to service 4,000+ JDA customers.  This presentation looks at the end-to-end implementation of MDM and tries to address the hardest problems that arise in such projects.  Enterprise IT topics to be discussed include:

  • Establishing the context for MDM relative to other key IT initiatives such as data governance, data quality & metadata management
  • Rationalizing the IT portfolio of multiple legacy on premise enterprise applications with planned Cloud-enabled solutions
  • Starting small while taking every opportunity to establish & showcase MDM capability/benefits along the way
