More Info. on Microsoft’s External MDM Strategy

In November ’07, Microsoft released a “technology preview” of its Master Data Management (MDM) solution (codenamed “Bulldog”) to selected customers and partners for testing and evaluation.

Microsoft’s public MDM road map is available, as is their overview of MDM. There’s also an MDM forum on the Microsoft Developer Network.

A couple of Microsoft people (Kirk Haselden, Group Program Manager for MDM and Roger Wolter, now with Microsoft’s internal MDM project) are blogging at http://blogs.msdn.com/knight_reign/ and http://blogs.msdn.com/rogerwolterblog/.

My opinion is that Microsoft’s entering the market is a validation of MDM and probably does signal the transition from “early adopters” to “mainstream”.  I continue to be interested in learning more about the Microsoft solution, and how it will impact small & medium-sized businesses, as well as larger enterprises.
