Innovation: Break Through the Hype

Master Data Management in Context: Trust at the Core
For many organizations high quality, high integrity master data is foundational to their data and analytics strategy as well as capability. Yet master data alone does not provide for the needs of the business. It is always a combination of master and non-master data brought together in a deliberate way to meet target use cases that deliver value — and do so across the whole of the enterprise. This spotlight track places MDM in the broader context of data and analytics by virtue of being embedded in each of the primary tracks, addressing both fundamentals and advanced topics within MDM.
