About this paper
Enterprise initiatives like master data management (MDM) often stall. Why does that happen, and how can you avoid it? Expert David Loshin examines the levels of maturity and capability needed to successfully deploy MDM and shows which tangible benefits you can achieve early in the process. To reduce risk yet deliver practical value for users, Loshin says to start with tasks that address fundamental needs – standardizing semantics, consolidating metadata and improving data quality. Follow the concrete actions outlined in this paper to position those fundamentals as the first steps in growing your business-oriented, enterprise information strategy.
