I noted, with a wry smile, the following text in an Information Management article today, “MDM Achieving Maturity in Enterprises“,
“The findings of this report mirror our own client experiences, namely that there is an uplift in MDM adoption and an acceleration in delivery timeframes,” says Jill Dyche, partner and co-founder of Baseline Consulting. “The fact that data quality, data governance, and data enrichment processes may accompany an MDM initiative make it all the more attractive as an enterprise solution.”
The part that made me smile was the implication that MDM could exist without data quality, data governance, and data enrichment processes. Our view, and definition of MDM, always implied this. How else could MDM (the discipline) be achieved?
Perhaps the comment is targeted more at “what is actually going on in the real world that is called MDM” in which case I can understand the point. But, given the flurry of exchanges in the last 2 days, I thought this article’s timing was exemplarity (and perspective relevant).
