Data Quality – There are different versions of data available in any enterprise. The sources of the data might be coming from organizational functions, systems, locations, and Integration of the data is always a Challenge.

MDM is the most ideal solution for all your data problems and lets us understand why.

Critical and key business users in the enterprise can manage the master data with the help of robust processes and technology enablement provided by IT teams. MDM is not just possible only by IT or business teams in isolation. While IT can enable the technology, business teams need to participate in the process. Data Stewards have the access to reject or approve the data. The data quality controls entirely depend on the data stewards. Any change request in the master data can be made only after the approval from the Right authorities / Data Owners.

There are different flavors of MDM, centralized, registry model, collaborative and decentralized. With a single owner of the master data, you can centrally manage the data or de-centrally which are owned by the multiple entities.

With MDM solutions, there is a considerable amount of improvement in Data Quality and also business operations. Furthermore, you can also rely on a single source of truth of multiple systems. MDM includes the process of cleansing, integration, and transformation by enabling enterprises to experience, up-to-date, accurate, consistent, and publishing the unique golden records to be used in the downstream systems or often reference back to the source systems, MDM is also a key step to create the customer 360, degree view initiatives which help the organization to view the holistic view of the customer interactions with the enterprise.
