Oracle MDM Value Chain – MDM and Customer Relationship Management
By David Butler on Sep 08, 2011
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) was the fertile ground that spawned Master Data Management. It was the need to integrate customer data across channels and applications that drove the Customer Data Integration (CDI) technology. CDI was the first example of MDM and clearly demonstrated its value for applications designed to support Marketing, Sales, and Service departments. Customer loyalty, targeted marketing and the 360 degree customer view needed for successful customer service define the MDM – CRM value chain.
