Recently Aaron Zornes and I hosted a webinar on the “Top 10 Best Practices for Successful MDM Implementations.” Almost 700 people registered for it – one of the highest number of registrations I’ve seen for a webinar, ever!

Over the years we’ve compiled quite a cadre of uses cases across industries and strategic initiatives. I thought this outline of the 30 most common MDM initiatives may be of interest to those of you who are just getting started on your MDM journey. (more…)
Given a list of data domains that were critical to the success operation of a set of business processes, we start to get a picture of the interdependence of many applications on the same conceptual data.
