Deliver Your Master Data Strategy With MDO MDM
With the proliferation of data and information in this Digital Age, organizations must have a strong data strategy to gain competitive advantage. Master data is the core building block to support operational and business-critical tasks like interacting with suppliers and customers, keeping track of assets, and innovating new business models. Hence, Master Data Management (MDM) is a key part of an organization’s data strategy.
MDM shouldn’t be limited to basic data creation and maintenance. It should ensure transparency and high quality data, essentially upholding the single version of truth at all times. It’s crucial to get the data right from the beginning as it’s costly to do data cleansing mid-stream and potentially catastrophic to operate a business with bad data.
Master Data Online (MDO) provides a cloud-based one-stop master data management platform that addresses all these issues and more. It lays the foundation for a data culture in your organization where data becomes a valuable asset that helps achieve your strategic goals.
Challenges in Managing Master Data
No Automation and Standardization in Creating and Maintaining Master Data
Use of manual forms and disparate systems to create and track master data makes it tedious to ensure standardization and leaves no room for improvement and automation.
No Guarantee of Data Accuracy
Hard to identify expired and redundant data, resorting to manual/semi-manual validation to identify data issues.
Wrong reference data causes inaccurate links to data points, invalidating controls and values in the system.
Complexity of Master Data Management Systems
Siloed systems for data acquisition and integration, higher complexity in managing different systems and touchpoints.
No Ownership and Governance of Data
No top-down, enterprise-wide approach in enforcing data ownership and governance, making it impossible to trust data to form strategic, forward-looking decisions.
