MDM has become a highly debated issue due to high costs and disruptions for enterprise deployments while the high level of dynamism inherent in data sources today is eroding the value of the proverbial golden record. Further, with information consumers demanding more control over defining master data to match changing usage context, physical MDM has become increasingly less viable. In this talk, you will see comparison between physical and virtual MDM system and how virtual MDM provides a pragmatic alternative that is cost-effective, highly flexible and integrates seamlessly with the existing IT infrastructure. This idea is complemented by enabling distributed stewardship of data by the person or organization closest to the “truth” or to define that “truth” itself in the context of the transaction or use of data. This presentation derives context from pharmaceuticals industry problems, but does not necessarily represent the views of any company or employer.
