Topic: Master Data Management (MDM)
Andy Hayler from The Information Difference is the keynote speaker – Andy is one of the world’s foremost experts on Master Data Management.
Having an accurate, complete and authoritative source of Master Data is essential to meet business initiatives like customer centricity, process improvement and regulatory compliance. Despite this, many organisations struggle to get their Master Data Management programmes started. This is often due to the perceived complexity, investment and the degree of organisational alignment required to undertake MDM.
The reality is that if approached in the right way MDM can be successfully delivered in a timely and non-intrusive fashion, providing demonstrable value back to the organisation. This half day Informatica seminar will explain how to achieve this, and will cover:
- What is MDM and where does it offer most value?
- How to build upon your existing data management foundation to deliver tactical MDM solutions in a cost, time and risk effective manner.
- How to build a business case for MDM and get your initiative started.
- How to accelerate MDM initiatives using Informatica MDM product and professional services assets.
- How to ensure success – best practices in MDM delivery and customer case studies.
At the end of the seminar you will have a clear understanding of how to identify, justify and initiate MDM initiatives aimed at specific use cases within your organisation. By breaking your strategic MDM need into smaller, easier to deliver, increments you can embark upon your MDM journey in a controlled manner and begin exploiting this powerful technology to deliver value to your key business programmes.
Data integration has traditionally meant compromise with speed coming at the expense of quality, and if quality and rapid delivery were ensured – then costs would spiral out of control. This is highlighted by Gartner’s estimate that for some organisations, data integration costs will double without adding a focus on data quality. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Next generation data integration expands the scope of data integration to meet emerging IT and business demands – eliminating traditional trade-offs and enabling data management teams to execute better, cheaper, and faster projects. Focusing on people, processes, and technologies – next generation data integration takes advantage of best practices and tools that have steadily matured with greater capabilities and reach, to drive an evolution toward the ideal of an innovative, agile, data-driven enterprise.
During this Informatica forum we will examine the IT and business pressures that are making next generation data integration a strategic imperative, outline the key characteristics of a next generation data integration environment, and provide practical guidance for making the transition.
What you will learn during this half day event:
- Why dramatic changes in data volume, variety, and velocity make the traditional approach to data integration inadequate.
- How a next generation approach transforms data integration from a project to a key business process.
- The quantifiable business impact of adopting next generation integration.
- Why next generation data integration should be a process where IT is an enabler – not a leader.
- Why it is so important that the “data quality team” expands beyond IT to include more people who actually use the data day-to-day.
- The importance of automation in improving the efficiency of the development life-cycle and the role of a metadata repository/business glossary.
You may have heard that Master Data Management (MDM) implementations can be long and painful. And it’s difficult to be successful. With solid buy-in and planning, adaptable technology, and a phased implementation approach, you can quickly launch a successful MDM program that starts small and successfully scales to meet several business challenges.
Are you looking for the best 10 gems of advice about how to launch an MDM program quickly and successfully? Are you looking for the 5 pitfalls to avoid? Then this 2-hour virtual MDM event on April 17 in North America timezone and April 18 in EMEA timezone is for you.

- Ravi Shankar, Vice President of MDM Product Marketing at Informatica
These MDM experts will share their experiences implementing MDM programs quickly and successfully. Based on their combined years of experience planning and executing MDM programs, they will share the top 5 pitfalls to avoid when embarking on an MDM program. They will also share their top 10 best practices such as using a phased approach to MDM implementations and showing value to the business quickly so your program has a greater chance of success.
Informatica Public Sector Resource Centre: Best Practices for Delivering Customer-centric Public Services
This Informatica Public Sector Resource Centre provides valuable insight into best practices for integrating information and delivering it to any system in any context – so departments and agencies can rapidly overcome almost any data-centric challenge. These best practices will help eliminate all the different barriers that prevent government organisations from meeting their data requirements for information sharing, transparency, and accountability.
Data and the dedicated people who use it are the two most important assets for any public sector organisation. Whether data is in unstructured, structured, or archived forms – and regardless of whether it resides inside the enterprise, in partners’ systems, or in the cloud – the ability to get to it, trust it, and use it to drive effective actions is key to increasing operational efficiency and providing truly customer-centric public services.
What you will learn from this Public Sector Resource Centre:
- Best practices for rapidly integrating new form-based online applications with back office databases
- How to mitigate the potential risk of “unmanaged” data input to corporate data quality
- Best practices for integrating cloud data
- How to address the challenges of data being derived from customers/citizens, partners and suppliers in a variety of languages and even different countries
- How high-precision Identity Data can help create a true single view of the customer/citizen
- How to rapidly build data services so data, rules and policies can be reused throughout the enterprise
- The role of an Integration Competency Center within a shared service environment
- How to maximise the value of existing technology investments
- Why collaboration between business and IT is pivotal in delivering truly customer-centric public services
- How pervasive data quality helps create and maintain a true single view of customer/citizen
This Informatica Resource Centre features interviews and detailed case studies of how leading transportation companies around the world maximise operational efficiency, increase regulatory compliance, and improve responsiveness to industry changes.
The transportation business generates vast amounts of data about its passengers and cargo. This data is spread over disparate systems – from scheduling, staffing, and supply chain applications to maintenance records, customer relationship management systems, and financial databases.
Transportation companies are grappling with challenges that stem from this data – its massive volumes, its complex formats, its questionable quality, and its many sources.
Leading transportation companies around the world have adopted Informatica’s solutions to address these key issues – empowering them to:
- Reduce IT infrastructure cost and complexity by unlocking data from its original applications and promoting reuse across the enterprise.
- Maximise operational efficiency by streamlining and automating processes.
- Optimise customer service initiatives, identify new customer sectors, and better understand customer preferences.
- Increase profitability by responding more quickly to shifting transportation and passenger demands.
- Improve productivity by optimising fleet capacity and maximising speed.
- Reduce compliance costs through accurate, timely reporting of data.
