Publisher Comments:

A recent Information Week article told us that the amount of data stored in business now doubles every 12-18 months, and that the demand for information is increasing at such a fast pace that IT organizations are struggling to deliver timely responses to the information requests of businesses. Because of the unfortunate state of most companies' information architecture, these requests take months, not days, to satisfy. Many organizations are re-examining their existing approaches to managing data and ensuring the foundation of information management is well-managed.

If your organization is no different from others, this book will help you leverage your existing data warehouse and business intelligence initiatives, and provide a focal point for data quality--far beyond what using vendor tools alone. Master Data Management provides a detailed view of the problem, the solutions, and the challenges associated with:

-- establishing best practices for instituting an MDM program;

-- the guidelines and techniques for assessing enterprise master data quality and best technical approaches for building an MDM solution;

-- the techniques for identifying MD objects, modeling a canonical form, and extracting and aggregating master data, and

--the policies and processes used in migrating toward hte SOA integration of the master repository across existing and future line of business applications.

* Focuses exclusively on one of the top three IT issues in business today: Master Data Management.

* One-stop shopping for guidelines, techniques, and best practices for building MDM solutions.

* Written by a recognized expert in data quality and data integration who hosts anexpert channel and newsletter on www.b-eye-network.com

Synopsis:

The key to a successful MDM initiative isn’t technology or methods, it’s people: the stakeholders in the organization and their complex ownership of the data that the initiative will affect.

Master Data Management equips you with a deeply practical, business-focused way of thinking about MDM—an understanding that will greatly enhance your ability to communicate with stakeholders and win their support. Moreover, it will help you deserve their support: you’ll master all the details involved in planning and executing an MDM project that leads to measurable improvements in business productivity and effectiveness.

* Presents a comprehensive roadmap that you can adapt to any MDM project.

* Emphasizes the critical goal of maintaining and improving data quality.

* Provides guidelines for determining which data to “master.”

* Examines special issues relating to master data metadata.

* Considers a range of MDM architectural styles.

* Covers the synchronization of master data across the application infrastructure.
