Over the past few years we have been evaluating issues, practices, techniques, and proceses for justifying, planning, designing, and managing a successful master data management (MDM) program. Recently, my book, Master Data Management (The MK/OMG Press) was published by Morgan Kaufmann, and is now available.
Now that MDM has been around for a few years, I believe that in order to make MDM programs successful, we need to jump off the hype curve and start considering the real issues that will be faced when attempting to build a reasonable business case and initiate the program. In this book, I look at the business drivers, identify key stakeholder archetypes, review management processes such as data governance and organizational change, and then look at the techniques and tools to make MDM work. I hope that this book sounds intriguing and that you'll geta copy. If youy get a copy and you like it, I would be thrilled for you to post a review at amazon as well!
In addition, I have put together a companion web site to continue the MDM discourse and to provide extra insights as more case studies and success stories emerge. I have the support of a number of great technology sponsors to build the content, and I am definitelty interested in hearing about your MDM ideas also. Please visit the site (http://mdmbook.com) and let me know what you think!
