I’m still a volunteer on the Education Committee of the Oracle Application Users Group, which is a robust users group that is completely independent of Oracle Corporation. I’ve been involved in the group as a whole for over 15 years now, and have been on the Education Committee for more than five years.
The Call for Papers for the 2012 COLLABORATE conference is open, and I am starting to plan the MDM track of the conference.
We are going to make this conference – to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on April 22-26, 2012 – our best ever. We are looking for papers on Customer Master Data Management (MDM) and Product MDM, as well as other domains of MDM as well. Multidomain MDM – the ability to manage several different domains of data within one MDM hub – is a popular topic, as is anything to do with data governance.
We’re looking for real world success stories, with presentations from end users at deploying companies as well as from consultants who have been part of MDM and data governance projects.
Last year, we had 32 different MDM track presentations, with titles such as:
- Managing Global Customer Data Using Oracle Data Quality Management and Party Merge – One Year Later, by Mike Foxcroft and Nick Soh
- MDM Case Study: Making Information Management the Foundation of the Future, by William McKnight
- The Strategic Nature of MDM, by David Butler of Oracle
- MDM Best Practices and Implementation Approaches, by Mani Kumar Manda
- Oracle MDM Strategy and Roadmap, by Manoj Tahiliani of Oracle
But this year, we want to go above and beyond last year. We want bigger and better case studies, more real world / end user presentations, different examples from different industries. Share what you’ve learned with your fellow practitioners in the MDM Community.
