Master data management (MDM) is a top priority for organizations as they try to gain control over an often overlooked asset: their data. Master data - such as customer, supplier, partner, product, materials and employees - is critical for running a business. Yet, it is typically scattered within heterogeneous application silos across the enterprise.
IBM Master Data Management addresses and solves the root cause of master data complexity - how data is created, accessed, managed and analysed. MDM centralises the common data functionality dealing with master data. It allows enterprises to identify common functionality for all systems and applications by supporting the various ways in which those applications use master data. MDM moves beyond previous attempts at centralising control of data by allowing users to fully manage data with multiple domains and multiple styles (types of data usage) and centralises both the master data and the functionality that manages it.
