Hey, sorry it has been a while since my last blog entry. I have been focused on finishing up my book on master data management (MDM), which thankfully is now finished. Some interesting thoughts gelled over the past 6 months in which I have been furiously assembling material for the book, which is due now to be published in the Fall by Elsevier:
- MDM is more of a means than an end, and it is more likely to be justified in the context of other enterprise activities such as CRM or ERP.
- I have started to bristle at the phrase "golden copy." I now think that MDM is more about providing universal transparent access to a sngle representation of uniquely identifiable entity data, but that does not mean that entity data has to sit in its own silo.
- Comprehensive master metadata should include more than just data dictionary information
Stay tuned for more information on the book...
