Craig Schiff

I am very excited about this opportunity to share my perspectives and experience in my BeyeNETWORK Blog. For those of you who may not have read my articles and newsletters over the past few years, I hope you will appreciate a vendor-independent perspective on all things related to Business Performance Management (BPM). I focus on key topics organizations should consider throughout their BPM project lifecycle, from early stage requirements definition and justification, key measure development, vendor selection and finally, successful deployment and rollout. Of course, market trends and vendor updates will also be part of the mix. Please stop by on a regular basis to see what's new, and to make this interactive, please share your opinions. If you have a specific question, contact me directly at cschiff@bpmpartners.com.

All of us so-called 'industry experts' have been talking about this topic for a while. We may call it master data or meta data or enterprise dimension management, but it all means the same thing. The question in my mind has been 'does the end user community see the same pressing need that we do?' Two recent data points have answered that question for me. I was asked to speak at a webcast on this topic, specifically focused on the chart of accounts dimension. Well, as it turned out the event was over-subscribed and we needed to schedule a second live run of the same webcast to handle the overflow crowd. In addition, we just completed our annual BPM Pulse Survey which asked nearly 500 respondents to rate the importance of a list of up and coming features of business performance management (predictive analytics, vertical solutions, etc.) and meta data management received the highest ratings. MDM/EDMs time has arrived.
