M5 MDM - A Best Practice Guide to Design and Implementation

May 8, 2017

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Duration: Full Day Course

Prerequisite: None

This workshop focusses on the end-to-end implementation of master data management and tries to address the hardest problems that arise in an MDM project. It looks at the broader picture of information governance, data quality and metadata management before applying these to an MDM project. It also address design issues such as inbound integration of master data to consolidate master data when it is scattered across many different data sources, and the outbound synchronisation of it to supply both operational and analytical systems. It also looks at master data virtualisation when you have a hybrid state of some master data consolidates and some not.  In particular it looks at what needs to be considered when dealing with data integration and data synchronisation to achieve best practice in design and implementation.
