Description Course Outline Exam Details
 

Proliferation of heterogeneous systems creates a pressing need for data sharing and data consistency. When many different systems collect data about master entities – customers, products, suppliers, employees, accounts, etc. – you can be certain that you’ll find inconsistencies, conflicts, and confusion. At best, conflict and confusion leads to waste and inefficiency in business process. More severe consequences include damaged credibility and reputation when errors and inconsistencies are visible to customers, suppliers, and employees. Today’s complex business and information systems must synchronize master data. That is the role and purpose of Master Data Management (MDM) systems.

MDM is not a casual endeavor. It is a complex data management challenge that requires a formal and well-managed program. The unique challenges of an MDM program are often not apparent even to seasoned data management professionals. The complexities of managing identities and resolving conflicts among disparate data sources make MDM an ambitious undertaking that must address business, architectural, people, process, project, and technology dimensions to succeed.

5 of 5 Course Review March 12, 2018
Reviewer: Evelyn Occiano  
This comment applies to all modules. The audio has more valuable information that students should be encouraged to take notes at every slide.  Would help students more if a transcript of the audio is provided as well as the slides to aid in fully understanding the content.

It will good to have more examples for each section and opportunity for Q&A. Q&A can itself be a section based on classroom trainings.

4 of 5 Course Review June 13, 2014
Reviewer: David Michie  
Challenging topic.  Seemed like too much time on areas like Syndicated Data and not enough on practical implementation, particularly Publication/Subscription of MDM data.  Would have liked more implementation diagrams.  Still found it to be very valuable.
