Master "Data" Management : Its not about "Data" or Technology ?

... de facto, MDM is about the business. Its about improving the business processes.

This is what Tony Fisher, President and CEO of DataFlux says in response to one of the articles that said that 89% of MDM initiatives are started with the notion to rectify inadequacies of data-management infrastructure.

He said, MDM strategy should start with identifying what business problem is being solved followed by streamlining business processes that are part of this problem. Starting with rectifying data is like starting on the wrong side which will just lead to building another data silo, this time called "MDM".

This is an interesting take on MDM and you can read the full article here.

DataFlux is a prominent MDM vendor that sells Data Governance, Data Quality and Master Data Management solutions.
