Whitepaper : Mastering Data Modeling for Master Data Domains
Reconcile conflicting structure and semantics
Define unique master data domains
Reduce the risk of duplication and inconsistency
Author: David Loshin
Increasing dependence on enterprise-class applications has created a demand for centralizing organizational data using techniques such as Master Data Management (MDM). The development of a useful MDM environment is often complicated by a lack of shared organizational information and data modeling. In this paper, David Loshin explores some of the root causes that have influenced an organization’s development of a variety of data models, how that organic development has introduced potential inconsistency in structure and semantics, and how those inconsistencies complicate master data integration.
