Tamr | MDM and the Data Unification Imperative


Published on

A successful digital information strategy depends on being able to find, connect and consume diverse data sources repeatably and at scale. But top-down, deterministic data unification approaches (such as ETL, ELT and MDM) weren’t designed to scale to the variety of hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of data silos. A new bottom-up, probabilistic approach to data unification complements MDM by providing the agility and scalability to exploit data variety.

  7. 7. Some Options Option #1 - Deny Variety - use information that is easiest/closest Option #2 - Manage Variety incrementally - using traditional approaches: ● Standardization ● Aggregation ● Master Data Management ● Rationalize Systems ● Throw Bodies at it ● Improve Individual Productivity Option #3 - Embrace Variety using probabalistic/model based approach - Tamr
