Recently, Hub Designs became a member of the MDM Alliance Group (MAG).
MAG is a not-for-profit community, founded by Pierre Bonnet, of users, software vendors, consultants and systems integrators who jointly invest their time and intellectual property in the development of a common best practice and procedure approach for the successful and sustainable implementation of Master Data Management projects. Pierre is also author of the excellent book “Enterprise Data Governance“.
Hub Designs believes in the community driven approach that the MDM Alliance Group is pursuing, and we’ve been following their progress for quite a while. Their web site, www.mdmalliancegroup.com, has a lot of good information and downloadable assets on modeling procedures, prebuilt data models, webinar replays, and more.
Hub Designs sponsors The MDM Community, but so far that has been more of a forum for people to ask one another questions, to write blog articles, to discuss topics and post upcoming events. Perhaps at some point, The MDM Community will become a way for MDM practitioners to share digital assets with one another. But in the meantime, the MDM Alliance Group is doing great work, and Hub Designs is proud to be a member of it.
Also, a section of our white paper which was released on Sept. 14th, 2010 has been published on the MDM Alliance Group web site. This section deals with the importance of a model-driven approach and proactive data governance to delivering multidomain MDM. You can read that section of the white paper here. You can also download the entire white paper.
