Microsoft’s Internal MDM Project (MIO)

I came across this blog posting from 08/18/08 by Nick MacKechnie at Microsoft.

It briefly discusses Master Data Management at Microsoft – the “Microsoft Individual and Organization” (MIO) project.

This is a massive MDM project that Microsoft is doing for its own internal use.  I’m familiar with it from my time at D&B.

There’s a Microsoft TechNet webcast (by Matt Stitz, with whom I worked closely prior to his move from Oracle to Microsoft), and an 8-page technical case study. There’s a corresponding PowerPoint, which I wasn’t able to download for some reason.

In addition to the Microsoft technology used on the project, MIO is based, in part, on Initiate Systems’ Identity Hub.

Microsoft estimates it will help it realize over $200 million in increased revenue and cost savings. Interesting reading!
