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.
In the webcast, the panel will discuss what Enterprise Master Data Management (EMDM) is and how strategies built around the EMDM framework can benefit businesses and several key concepts of data management, including:
- What business problems do EMDM help address
- What a system of record is vs. a system of reference
- Data maturity models, their meaning and value to an organization
- Data quality strategy and practices
- Applying EMDM in data warehouse situations
- Security considerations when it comes to enterprise master data
