For many Global 5000 enterprises, MDM is a relatively mainstream business strategy when it concerns CUSTOMER or PRODUCT master. Or so they thought... With the perfect storm of Mobile, Social, Cloud and Real-Time Information brewing, these once leading-edge MDM architectures are quickly becoming obsolescent and/or "IT money pits“. Because master data is required to provide competitive advantage, increase customer service levels, and drive new product/service combinatorial market offerings, MDM solutions must embrace the next-generation of IT capabilities (e.g., location awareness, graph database, Big Data analytics, etc.) to deliver such evolving capabilities.
The fact remains that MDM is fundamental to realizing value from information-- whether it is Big Data or not, multi-tenant cloud or on-premise, mobile or static, etc.). Moreover, next-generation MDM solutions must transcend the limitations of contemporary MDM platforms regarding breadth and depth of "single view". These next-generation domains ("sphere of influence", etc.) must leverage all the internal/corporate and external/public deep web capabilities to enrich and confirm the information (data and relationships) that comprise the most important info assets of every enterprise no matter the geography, industry or size. Master reference data, business process management (BPM), social CRM, big data, enterprise content management (ECM) – where will the confluence of MDM and Data Governance be most impactful in providing business value to large enterprises?
