The latest techniques for building a customer-focused enterprise environment
"The authors have appreciated that MDM is a complex multidimensional area, and have set out to cover each of these dimensions in sufficient detail to provide adequate practical guidance to anyone implementing MDM. While this necessarily makes the book rather long, it means that the authors achieve a comprehensive treatment of MDM that is lacking in previous works." -- Malcolm Chisholm, Ph.D., President, AskGet.com Consulting, Inc.

A long sail across Lake Déjà Vu

People who can benefit from reading the book include (a) vendors and consultants selling "data solutions", (b) high-level managers buying them, (c) techies typing in PowerPoint, following a tryst between (a) and (b), or lobbying for a project/budget, and (d) students in courses on "information management" etc. Someone with at least a couple of years of experience in data management - I have considered the alternatives "someone who actually knows SQL syntax" and "someone who actually has to implement or manage a data system" - asking "What new and useful technical data-management advice does the book offer?" may be disappointed. I did not find a whole lot of *original* thought, and proposals (between "where we want to be" and "how to get there", I count as proposals only the latter variety) that did seem original were not always well explained, let alone argued for. Kudos to the authors for aggregating and presenting so much material - from SOX to SSL, from XACML to GLBA, from SOUNDEX... read more
This is THE BOOK for MDM.
By T. Anderson - December 17, 2010
This book is great for beginners just starting out with MDM as well as seasoned professionals. I was introduced to MDM with the first version of this book. That was not my copy, so I bought the second edition for myself.
This book covers everything MDM from architectural considerations to governance and market trends.
The book offers some really sound advice on building the business case for MDM and how to communicate that business case effectively. Listen to their advice!!!! I am an architect, purely a technical guy, but I can tell you from experience without the backing of the business your project will be squashed.
The book covers the technical aspects of implementation in great detail. This book will give you the insight you need to fully understand the complexities of an MDM project. There are a ton of vendors out their claiming to have a magic install of MDM available for purchase, but the truth is they just do not exist. MDM is a process... read more
The reference book for MDM
By Robert Hillard - November 25, 2010
I read the first edition in 2007, "Master Data Management and Customer Data Integration for a Global Enterprise". It was the first comprehensive look at the field and has been an enormous success in the market. I personally continue to buy it for my clients to read as a way of explaining the complexity of MDM. For that reason, I was delighted to receive a pre-release copy of the their fully updated second edition, recognising the ongoing and rapid development of this field. The new book is called simply "Master Data Management and Data Governance", taking away the references to CDI which seems to have become comfortably subsumed in the profession by MDM.
The book is a complete refresh, without losing the core content in the original that made it such a good primer on the topic. There is a new chapter providing different industry perspectives, with specific language and suggestions that will be extremely useful for practitioners in financial services,... read more
