This article offers the reader suggestions on managing reference data resources. The author discusses how master data management (MDM) is a relatively new concept for corporate concern, as companies are in need for authoritative, consolidated, current, and internally consistent reference data. Organizations need to maintain current, organized, structured master datasets on their employees, customers, distributors, suppliers, and products. The author continues by stating that MDM is more of a best-practices paradigm, referring to the infrastructure, tools, and workflows for life-cycle governance of master reference data.
