Oracle MDM Value Chain – MDM and Enterprise Performance Management / BI
By David Butler on Sep 01, 2011
Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) and Business Intelligence (BI) applications rely entirely on the quality of the data that feeds them. Garbage in – garbage out is the rule, no matter how sophisticated the analytical tools might be. That is why MDM is so critical. Only MDM has proven that it can create authoritative dimensions, complete cross-references, and all necessary hierarchies to support analytical systems. We call the MDM and EPM-BI combined value proposition the MDM – EMP/BI Value Chain. The OpenWorld MDM program examines several key aspects of this value chain.
To set the context for MDM’s role, start with our MDM General Session - Oracle MDM Vision, Strategy and Roadmap at 2 pm on Monday, October 3rd in Moscone West 3014. Here are the MDM – EPM/BI value chain sessions you won’t want to miss:

Session 15626 – Introduction and Update: Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management

Attendees will benefit from a discussion of Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management product features, future roadmap, use cases, and customer stories to develop a better understanding of how it can be deployed as an enterprise dimension and hierarchy management solution.

Session 4180 - Customer Intelligence with Oracle Master Data Management Solutions
Customer Intelligence is a key business success factor for Brocade that is looking for flexibility and scalability with evolving business needs. This requirement led to a Customer Data Hub and a Business Intelligence initiative. This presentation highlights the success story of a rapid CDH deployment and also emphasizes the need for a Business Intelligence component to get the maximum ROI. It is a compelling story of taking two architectural initiatives from concept to production in a year with no experienced resources in Oracle MDM and OBIEE. The presentation highlights the rapid development methodology that was used and some unique best practices including early involvement from the business and common pitfalls to avoid.
