Master Data Management (MDM) and Data Integrity

Master Data Management (MDM) and Data Integrity


Understanding Master Data Management

Master Data Management (MDM) covers all the processes and technological tools to build a unified view of the company's master data.

MDM focuses on ensuring the consistency and quality of data for operations and decision-making completeness, reliability, and timeliness.

Today, the same data is duplicated, shared, or re-entered on various applications across different departments of the company. The MDM system makes it possible to identify, clean and standardize data in order to create reference data : single, complete and up-to-date version (golden record).

Master Data Management (MDM) and Data Integrity

Most MDM solutions offer the following features :

Data administration

  • Rights and Privacy Management
  • Metadata Management
  • Versioning
  • Data lifecycle management (from entry to validation)

Data enhancement

  • Manipulation of unstructured data (Big Data)
  • Access to external data sources (Customer data, Markets, ...)

Data quality

  • Handling duplicates and inconsistencies
  • Traceability and audit trails

Data integration

  • Services for collecting and sharing reference data (ETL, Web Services, etc.)

In the era of Big Data, hyper-personalization, and the evolution of regulatory contexts (GDPR, IFRS, ...), MDM is an essential tool for CIOs wishing to bring value and impact both internally and to customers.
