What is “Master Data”?
Businesses rely upon Customer Master, Product Master, GL Chart of Accounts, Vendor Master and other “Nouns of the Business”. Master Data is a foundation of business systems, reporting systems, and Digital Transformation.
Master Data stored within applications suffers from a “Silo Effect”, leading to fragmentation of core data assets. Master Data fragmentation compromises your organizational ability to leverage data for Digital Transformation. Regardless of industry, master data management is critical to your organizational ability to scale in the digital world. However, acquisitive firms, companies in heavily regulated industries and companies which rely heavily upon legacy business systems are especially vulnerable to this master data fragmentation.
A Master Data Management solution provides Data Governance tools which allow business stakeholders to manage data outside of technology silos. MDM provides a means to enforce data standards and manage system harmonization. System harmonization provides significant value whenever a single master data record is common across multiple business systems.
