Analyst(s): Bill Swanton

Summary

Companies that are consolidating to a single instance of ERP usually start thinking about Master Data Management (MDM) when they realize they aren't reaping the expected benefits due to data quality problems. Tools are available to better manage master data creation and quality, though so far, the primary focus is on product supply master data, such as finished goods, materials, suppliers, Bills of Material (BOMs), and routings.
