The deadline for the Call for Papers for the 2012 COLLABORATE conference is coming up fast – Friday, October 14.
The Master Data Management Track of this conference will be the best we’ve ever had. There’s been a separate MDM track for five years, since I joined the Education Committee of the Oracle Applications Users Group in 2006.
This year’s COLLABORATE conference will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on April 22-26, 2012.
We’re looking for papers from new people and returning speakers, on topics like Customer MDM and Product MDM, as well as other domains of MDM. Multidomain MDM – the ability to manage many different domains of data within one MDM hub – would be a great topic. Data governance is another hot topic that people definitely want to hear about. Here are the sub-categories that you can use within the MDM Track:
- Best Practices
- Data Quality
- Data Governance
- External Content
- MDM Hubs
- Organizational Change
We’d like a good mix of presentations from end users and consultants. This year, we want more case studies, more real world presentations, and more examples from different industries.
To respond to the MDM Track Call for Papers before the October 14th deadline, just click here.
VERY IMPORTANT: be sure to indicate the “Master Data Management (MDM)” track (and only that track) in your entry so it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. When we “build the room”, it’s hard to find your submission if it’s got 4 other tracks added on to it. So just stick with the MDM track, please.
If your paper is selected, you’ll get a free conference registration.
