Worse still, there is often little appreciation among senior management of the need for an Enterprise wide Data Model. Impact: The absence of a Enterprise wide Data Model makes it difficult for even technical experts to locate data.

Therefore, on the plus side, this book is really well structured and thought out. It gives you an excellent introduction to the topic and introduces you to all the aspects of MDM in a balanced high level manner. On the minus side, I have always had some trouble I regard David Loshin as one of the few real experts within the Data Management space. On the minus side, I have always had some trouble with the writing style used by David Loshin. I find it very heavy handed and complex.
I understand that, as an expert, you take care of expressing your thoughts in a very precise manner, choosing your wording very carefully. This should not however make the text difficult to read and understand.
This is what happened to me on several sections where you find yourself struggling to discover that you do understand but that all could have been explained in a simpler way. So, in summary, a recommended reference work on MDM but not the easiest read The graphs and the logical structure of the information is fine, but this driest and most pedestrian of software engineering topics is explained in the most neutral and bureaucratic tone you could imagine.
I read it for work, not because I really wanted to.
Master Data Management
Goal[ edit ] MDM is a comprehensive method of enabling an enterprise to link all of its critical data to one file, called a master file, that provides a common point of reference. When properly done, master data management streamlines data sharing among personnel and departments. In addition, master data management can facilitate computing in multiple system architectures, platforms and applications. The ultimate goal being to provide the end user community with a "trusted single version of the truth" from which to base decisions. Issues[ edit ] At a basic level, master data management seeks to ensure that an organization does not use multiple potentially inconsistent versions of the same master data in different parts of its operations, which can occur in large organizations.
