A successful MDM program ensures that the key attributes within operational processes, analytics, and customer information are available, accurate, and secure. If successful, MDM will be considered the “center of the universe” in your organization’s data ecosystem. Despite its importance, many organizations struggle to either launch or grow and sustain their MDM programs. In most cases this is a result of the program structure and processes rather than the technology. This tutorial will cover:
  • Case studies of two successful MDM programs in Fortune 500 companies
  • Lessons learned from the implementations of customer, product, location, and party master data domains
  • How to operate a MDM program as a self-sustaining service within your organization
  • Embedding data governance and data quality within the service
  • Marketing strategies to gain adoption of your MDM service
  • Positioning of the MDM program within your IT organization
