The Only Complete Technical Primer for MDM Planners, Architects, and Implementers
Companies moving toward flexible SOA architectures often face difficult information management and integration challenges. The master data they rely on is often stored and managed in ways that are redundant, inconsistent, inaccessible, non-standardized, and poorly governed. Using Master Data Management (MDM), organizations can regain control of their master data, improve corresponding business processes, and maximize its value in SOA environments.
"Enterprise Master Data Management "provides an authoritative, vendor-independent MDM technical reference for practitioners: architects, technical analysts, consultants, solution designers, and senior IT decisionmakers. Written by the IBM(R) data management innovators who are pioneering MDM, this book systematically introduces MDM's key concepts and technical themes, explains its business case, and illuminates how it interrelates with and enables SOA.
Drawing on their experience with cutting-edge projects, the authors introduce MDM patterns, blueprints, solutions, and best practices published nowhere else-everything you need to establish a consistent, manageable set of master data, and use it for competitive advantage.
How MDM and SOA complement each otherUsing the MDM Reference Architecture to position and design MDM solutions within an enterpriseAssessing the value and risks to master data and applying the right security controlsUsing PIM-MDM and CDI-MDM Solution Blueprints to address industry-specific information management challengesExplaining MDM patterns as enablers to accelerate consistent MDM deploymentsIncorporating MDM solutions into existing IT landscapes via MDM Integration BlueprintsLeveraging master data as an enterprise asset-bringing people, processes, and technology together with MDM and data governanceBest practices in MDM deployment, including data warehouse and SAP integration

It is however not a cookbook or Dummies guide - you have to have a need to get this deep into MDM which not a huge number of folks do.
Admittedly, after reading this book for the first time, this reviewer understands why the authors recommend first reading chapter 1 ("Introducing Master Data Management") followed by chapter 3 ("MDM Reference Architecture") and chapter 9 ("MDM and Data Governance") in order to understand MDM, data governance, and how to implement MDM, but these chapters also contain long stretches of content sans diagrams that are often slowly drawn out, so reading chapters in order is recommended unless the reader is already knowledgeable about MDM and is looking for industry-specific examples, in which case chapter 6 ("PIM-MDM Solution Blueprints") and chapter 7 ("CDI-MDM Solution Blueprints") should be read, or the reader is looking to integrate MDM with other systems, in which case chapter 8 ("MDM Integration Blueprints") should be read, although chapter 8 has difficulty standing on its own and the reading of chapters 6 and 7 heavily relies on chapter 5 ("MDM Architecture Patterns").
The authors present well MDM and service-oriented architecture (SOA) theory and how MDM enables SOA, and this reviewer especially appreciated their presentation on patterns and industry examples. MDM architecture patterns are broken down into (1) "MDM Hub Patterns", (2) "Information Focused Application Integration", (3) "Process Focused Application Integration", and (4) "Enterprise Systems Deployment", which are further broken down into the following, respectively: (1) "Transaction Hub", "Coexistence Hub", and "Registry Hub", (2) "Initial Load" and "Information Synchronization", (3) "Transaction Interception", "Messaging", and "ESB", and (4) "MDM-DW Integration", "MDM-BI Analytical System Integration", "MDM-ERP Integration", and "MDM-CRM Integration".
The authors follow up their presentation on patterns by providing solution insight to New Product Introduction (NPI) for the consumer electronics industry, Global Data Synchronization (GDS) for the retail industry, and PIM-RFID for tracking and tracing product, as well as solutions to Master Patient Index (MPI) for the healthcare industry, Cross- and Up-Sell and Fraud and Theft for the banking and insurance industry, and Self-Service Website for the telecommunications industry. Along the way, the authors discuss business context, relevant business patterns, relationships between business patterns and architecture patterns, and provide dozens of diagrams that tie-in directly to the discussion, walking the reader through architecture components and the interactions between these components. Expect to spend some time reading through these examples. Well recommended text on MDM for a wide spectrum of reader needs from the high-level to the deep-dive, but be aware that data models, a critical aspect of MDM, are unfortunately not discussed.
