Infoglide Matching

Matching (That Is, Entity Resolution) Revisited

I got a couple of e-mails from a friend over the past few days, and he asked some great questions about matching (or entity resolution, as Infoglide Software prefers to call it). His first question was about AbiliTec IDs for individuals. He wondered if this was an Axciom product or an industry standard identifier. He was looking for a way to uniquely identify customers from the web, retail point-of-sale (POS), and other marketing channels for a client who doesn’t have any useful way of identifying the same customer across channels.

Faster is Better!

In the real estate industry, they have a saying: “location, location, location!” In the technology business, and particularly in the master data management (MDM) field, it’s all about time to value. A shorter, more targeted project (vs. the “ultimate” whiz-bang project with all the technology bells and whistles) pays off better in two important ways: […]

Guy Kawasaki as Evangelist

The Need for MDM Evangelism

For a long time now, I’ve admired Guy Kawasaki, one of the early Apple employees responsible for marketing the Macintosh computer in 1984. He’s credited with being one of the people to bring the concept of evangelism, in his case focused on creating passionate users and developers to become advocates for Apple, to the high […]

Master Data Management Best Practice #10 – Use a Balanced, Holistic Approach

This may be the most important best practice of all: use a balanced, holistic approach – addressing people, process, technology and information. Start with the people, politics and culture, and then move on to the data governance and stewardship processes, then the technology. The recent Gartner “Magic Quadrant for MDM of Customer Data” by John […]

Complexity

Master Data Management Best Practice #9 – Don’t Underestimate the Complexity

One of my favorite quotes is from Albert Einstein, who said “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” This is very true in master data management (MDM) – where you’ll inevitably come under pressure to oversimplify. It’s not uncommon to have 20-30 source systems (or more) that have to be integrated […]

Data Governance

Master Data Management Best Practice #7 – Create a Data Governance Organization and Processes

If there’s no dedicated data governance function, then no one lives & dies with the accuracy, completeness, timeliness and consistency of the critical information that drives the business. There’s not much point in doing master data management if you’re not going to govern the data. I remember attending an MDM Summit conference a few years […]
