It has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “Enterprise Master Data Management & The Convergence of Technology & Business Live Webcast.” This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, October 27, 2011 @ 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET.

Event Summary:

What would you say if you found out that most of the reports, dashboards and other information that you were using to run your business are incorrect? Do you think it might impact your ability to competitively run your business, or even make good, sound decisions? If you don’t have confidence that you are making decisions on the right data, you are not alone. Many businesses are awash in data and are unable to state with certainty that the information that they use daily is correct.

That calls into question how we think about data and how it's used.

Master Data Management (MDM) is the management of an institution’s fundamental data that is shared across multiple business units, everything from project budgets to donor contacts to employee contact information. You can think of master data as all of the enterprise data (people, places, things and activities) that the institution needs to conduct its business.

The goal of MDM, consequently, is to ensure the accuracy, consistency and availability of this data to the various business users.

To be discussed, what Enterprise Master Data Management (EMDM) is and how strategies built around the EMDM framework can benefit businesses. Several key concepts of data management, including:

o What business problems do EMDM help address
o What a system of record is vs. a system of reference
o Data maturity models, their meaning and value to an organization
o Data quality strategy and practices
o Applying EMDM in data warehouse situations
o Security considerations when it comes to enterprise master data
