About this paper
Master data management (MDM) is a transformative effort, often requiring organizations to rethink their human resources, business policies and internal processes. In this paper by data quality and MDM thought leader David Loshin, we examine how an incremental approach to MDM can reframe the implementation to focus on near-term business user expectations as well as the long-term needs of the organization. By assessing your existing data governance, metadata, data quality, identity management and change management capabilities, you can prioritize these components within your MDM implementation and establish a more achievable path to MDM.
