All of your data in a single, governed source

With an effective master data management (MDM) strategy, you can ensure that your data always displays a single version of the truth across every channel, function and system in your business. Yet, to achieve a single, governed source of data – and the business benefits it brings – you need more than just MDM technology. Our team of MDM experts can provide the advice, implementation skills and on-going support and enhancement you need to make any MDM initiative a long-term success.

The world is full of data, but it's how you select, organise and interpret that information that determines its business value...


Master data management solutions help businesses remove data silos and create a single version of the truth with their data. The result is data – be it customer, product, asset or other records – that contains the same, accurate information whenever it is accessed across every channel, function and system in your business.

Why do you need MDM?

Managing master data effectively means improving the consistency and quality of business critical data such as product data, asset data, customer data, employee data and location data. But why is that important?

Creating a 'Single version of the truth'

Creating and maintaining a single trusted source for all of your data across your business ensures that data is not siloed in different areas, but instead that it represents the most accurate and up to date records that can be accessed and shared across the business.

Determining the ownership of the data

Where data is being shared by a number of parties across your business, having a rigorous and documented ownership and stewardship process is essential. Assigning responsibility ensures that your business is able to trust it and use that data when making critical decisions.

Focussing on continuing high quality data

MDM is focused on high quality data, meaning all aspects of the process will require ongoing monitoring. Specific data quality dimensions are critical, and common data governance rules and themes must be agreed to ensure that the MDM continues to support business objectives.

What are the benefits of MDM?

With a comprehensive MDM strategy, and the right MDM solution to support it, you can:

Improve efficiency with data
Benefit from better customer or product information
Explore digital innovations, from e-commerce initiatives to personalisation
Improve insight and decision making
Drive competitive advantage and efficiency
Reduce risk and comply to regulatory compliance with ease
Fuel better outcomes for new initiatives further along the data value chain
