Introduction2 anecdotes: K-Plussa, WärtsiläWhy is it so difficult to keep an accurate, consistent view on key information?Disparate systems, complex flows of data. 50-60 integration nodes are a common scenario. Fortun mapped 900 point to point integration pointsThere is a clear strategy on dismantling point to point integration.ERP implementations: data migration is mainly left to the organization. Focus on core processes, DM is overlooked and approached in a reactive manner.
The lowest level relates to usage of master data in local business processes. How a material is handled when it’s received in a warehouse.“If you can decouple data from the person who created and derive action from the data then it can be considered an asset”
Master Data Management (MDM) can be defined as an application-independent process which describes, owns and manages core business data entities (Boris and Andreas 2010); a set of policies and procedures for accessing, managing and maintaining a single version of master data and for coordinating the data with subscribing systems across the enterprise for the purposes of maintenance, analysis, and reporting (Ahern 2006).
Started in 2010, partially funded by TekesIneo’s business. ExpertiseProject. OnninenConcept Owner.
2 phases, 2 research questions1. What is the current state of Master Data Management concepts and practices?2 .How a Master Data Management solution can be evaluated?
MDM is the pre-*requisite for the realization of ERP business-case and a pre-requisite for operation.
