This session will describe OneAmerica's progress with its MDM program since its inception 2 years ago. We will review what has worked, was has not worked, and what we have yet to do to further our program. Specific topics covered include:
  • Sponsorship (how to get things started and, more importantly, to continue)
  • Data Strategy (current approach and moving forward with the DM-BOK)
  • Data Architecture (highly normalized Subject Areas)
  • Data Workflow (process of handling Data Requests)
  • Data Stewardship (overseeing the corporate Data Assets)

If you have an MDM program starting up or in-flight, perhaps you can pick up a few pointers to help out your organization.
