This presentation will illustrate a few notable use cases, decisions made, and lessons learned, while enhancing existing master data management capabilities. It’s based on the presenter’s hands-on experience managing and serving as a business systems analyst on numerous master data management projects. The work involved multiple business functions, sometimes with conflicting goals and priorities, and different IT teams responsible for heterogeneous systems and following different project methodologies, such as waterfall and scrum. The background for these use cases includes building self-service enrichment capabilities, defining alternate hierarchy in customer master and rolling out enterprise reference data. Attendees will hear about some of the lessons learned:
  1. Listening to understand pain points
  2. How to make architectural decisions contribute to business value
  3. Master data and reference data – differences in implementation
  4. Agility and governance
