MDM-Aware Apps


One of the trends I picked up on at the Gartner MDM conference in Los Angeles last week was momentum for MDM-powered or MDM-aware applications. It’s something that IBM, Oracle, Informatica and SAP have all been working on under one name or another.

One of the Strategic Planning Assumptions taht we have been sharing at the MDM & Data Governance Summits this year is below ... MDM-innate is the trend more so than MDM-aware or even MDM-enabled when we look at the app strategies of the mega vendors.

*****Universal/Pervasive MDM (MDM as a Service)***** During 2011 application package providers will deploy en masse the next generation of MDM-innate (as opposed to MDM-aware) applications; concurrently Software as a Service (SaaS/cloud) vendors will struggle to provide integrated/native MDM. Also during 2011-12 mega vendors MSFT and ORCL will essentially give away departmental MDM -via MSFT MDS and Oracle DRM respectively. By 2012 SaaS providers will have finessed this issue via strategic partnerships and investments in MDM solutions. Moreover the market for MDM-enabled applications will continue to exceed that for standalone MDM software.

MDM BPM SAAS Meta-data Architecture and MDM Rules Base all leverage each other. Enterprise applications can be built upon a standard platform and yield excellent information quality and high functionality with no additional pain. This is Plan A for MDM. Plan B for MDM is to build or buy disparate applications and use several MDM masters on top of them. Which is the most efficient and effective? Plan A by a factor of 10 to 1 (at least). I won't say which one the vendors like. In the year 2011 what is the compelling reason for an enterprise not to have an infrastructure that is common to all applications?
