Single Version of the Truth

TDWI Radio News Kalido's CEO Talks MDM and More

MDM may hold the key to delivering a single version of the truth. Kalido CEO Bill Hewitt discusses MDM workflows, the role of data stewards, and how much data is "too much."

As information management grows in overall usage, the number and diversity of information users expands as well. This increase can yield many benefits for the enterprise, but only if everyone’s on the same page, or at least the same chapter. One way to achieve that coveted single version of the truth is to employ master data management (MDM), a discipline designed for the express purpose of reconciling master data across a range of applications. In this TDWI Radio News interview, we spoke with Kalido CEO Bill Hewitt to hear his take on the increasingly popular role of MDM for decision support. You’ll learn:

  • What the MDM workflow looks like
  • The role of data stewards
  • Corporate information management officers
  • How much data is too much
  • Compliance as a market driver

Quotable:

“You can change the business model without touching the underlying data.”
