Format: Hardcover
This is a book which belongs on every desk of Enterprise Information IT-Architects, CIOs and business decision makers interested in optimizing their current business processes using Master Data Management! It provides a complete MDM Reference Architecture including component interaction diagrams, MDM architecture patterns and MDM Solution Blueprints for various industries. Furthermore, it explains why MDM is a key SOA enabler and why security and privacy are of paramount importance for MDM deployments. Finally, in a dedicated chapter on Data Governance, a critical success factor for implementing MDM is explained. Another amazing aspect is that this book focuses on architectural principals and is absolutely software product agnostic. Therefore, the key principles explained for designing MDM solutions the right way without a product feature/function discussion make this book very useful for a long period of time. It was a lot of fun to read and I drew a lot of useful insights from it. In my opinion an absolute must read for MDM practitioners!

Format: Hardcover
Advanced computer libraries will find ENTERPRISE MASTER DATA MANAGEMENT is the only complete technical primer for MDM planners and implementers and companies moving toward flexible SOA will find it invaluable. It provides MDM technical knowledge for designers, senior IT decision-makers and others, and is written by the IBM data management innovators who are pioneering MDM. From discussions of how MDM and SOA compliment each other to assessing risks, values, and exploring MDM patterns, chapters cover a range of technical data and best practice solutions and are invaluable to any IT collection.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Loshin on February 5, 2009
Format: Hardcover
These guys have put together a great overview of MDM from both the technical and operational perspective. The chapter on the MDM reference architecture details the core concepts that make MDM appealing. At the same time, the discussion in the book are often centered on operational patterns that are common across different industries (e.g., security) as well as examples/cases that are industry-specific.

If your business management is funding an MDM program, this is a good read for those on the design and implementation team, and an excellent companion to my own book, "Master Data Management."

Insights abound throughout this excellent and important book. For those seriously considering the efficacy of a comprehensive Master Data Management program in a modern enterprise, I would recommend this work. The authors do an excellent job of describing where Master Data Management fits in within a Services Oriented Architecture. And they also provide excellent technical guidance relative to integration and implementation. A minor, though necessary, criticism is that the book has a decided "IBM flavor" to it. This should be no surprise, as the book is published by IBM Press; and all of the authors are IBM employees. Nonetheless, the book is well written, well organized, comprehensive, excellent, and important. It is, in short, well worth the time, money, and effort; and the book does belong on the bookshelf of those truly committed to excellence in Enterprise Master Data Architecture.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Randy on February 12, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I am a long-time SAP technical consultant (admittedly with IBM, as are the authors of this book), but with little experience or knowledge of MDM. This is one of the best organized and most cohesively presented technical works I have read in some time (though the reader needn't be technical to get a great deal from the book). After having read it, I can't conceive of architecting an MDM solution without this book at my finger tips. And, as pointed out by other reviewers, the book is truly product agnostic.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The best text on enterprise master data management (MDM) in the marketplace today. Other reviewers have commented that this work is "the Bible" of MDM, and this reviewer agrees with this assessment at a deeper level than acknowledging its near-600 pages of content. In addition to providing an introduction to MDM, the authors walk the reader through architecting solutions and provide industry examples at a level of detail not found anywhere else. As a consultant, one aspect of this book that this reviewer especially appreciated is its true vendor neutrality. It is not until Appendix B that the authors mention commercial products in this space, and although this appendix might help readers understand what might be purchased as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software, it is quickly apparent that there has been a lot of movement over the last two years.Read more ›
