How Does MDM impact data-driven DSS?
by Dan Power
Master data management (MDM) is a complex process made up of a number of interrelated tasks. In general, MDM involves defining, maintaining and sharing consistent definitions of business entities and their attributes across all organization databases. MDM involves creating a single, comprehensive view of data names, definitions and characteristics. Master data management projects must be carefully planned and executed in terms of people, processes and technologies. An ongoing MDM process can improve the quality of data, create a consistent classification of data elements, and improve the identification of data that must be captured. A successful MDM project with ongoing maintenance of master data can improve data-driven DSS in an organization. Organizational MDM processes and practices can help or hinder the use of data-driven DSSs.
