Mastering Your Data
Master Data Management (MDM for short) has become a whole industry, within an industry. There are many companies now claiming to be MDM software (or services) providers. Everyone wants a master data project on their CV, and in general it has become hip and trendy to talk about and do.
The reality is that MDM is in fact the reincarnation of the problem of how to manage the consistency and integrity of the myriads of data assets that exist across the enterprise. This book provides an understanding of MDM, the business drivers behind it, the various techniques that are critical to its success and gives a good architectural grounding in the subject. It is perfect for anyone embarking on an adventure in this problem space.
The Enterprise Data Model
Wouldn’t it be great to understand all the data in your organisation? Just imagine being able to define, agree and manage information concepts that impact on business strategy? Then image that these information concepts can be linked to the physical database attributes that ultimately are used to create them. That’s what this book is about. It focuses on the data model as the foundation for achieving this understanding.
This book provides a framework for the enterprise data model, the business reasons behind it and the differences between conceptual, logical and physical data models. The question of how, and why, to use a data model artefact as part of the data governance toolkit for the whole enterprise is also addressed.
