Thank you for Joining us at Gartner Enterprise Information and Master Data Summit

Thank you for stopping by our Oracle Booth at Gartner and attending our session on Feet on the Ground, Head in the Cloud! We hope your time with Gartner and your fellow attendees was productive, fun and above all inspiring for the year to come.

Recognized as a leader in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for MDM solutions, Oracle’s strategy is to make the full spectrum of deployment options available to our customers.  With a mixture of on-premise and cloud-based applications integrated together to deliver best-in-class customer experience, we have wrestled with these problems and created solutions that can be implemented today.   The decisions you make on how to design and deploy MDM will have a magnified impact as the data explosion continues to unfold.


Oracle MDM solutions are built on the same application engines that drive our enterprise software, with thousands of customers in deployment managing billions of records. We have out-of-the-box integrations to a number of Customer Experience applications, industry standard data feeds and even third party applications and data sources. Our MDM applications are specifically engineered to be part of a heterogeneous application and technology ecosystem. Our EDQ and MDM applications are specifically engineered to be part of a heterogeneous application and technology ecosystem. That’s critically important as the MDM footprint gets extended, and your need to operate across these different environments expands.


It’s an exciting time to be in the enterprise data management space. We would welcome the chance to discuss what we’re doing in more detail, and to share our experience and our recommendations for solving your most pressing data problems.

Master Data Management: How to Avoid Big Mistakes in Big Data

Master Data Management: How to Avoid Big Mistakes in Big Data

The paradigm-changing potential benefits of big data can't be overstated—but big changes can deliver big risks as well. For example, exploding data volumes naturally create a corresponding increase in data correlations, but as leading experts warn, correlations should not be mistaken for causes.

To avoid drawing the wrong conclusions from big data, organizations first need a way to assemble reliable master data to analyze. Then they need a way to put those conclusions and that data to work operationally, in the systems that govern and facilitate their day-to-day operations.

Master data management (MDM) helps deliver insightful information in context to aid decision-making. It can be used to filter big data, isolating and identifying key entities and shrinking the dataset to a manageable size for parsing, tagging, and associating with operational system records. And it provides the key intersecting point that enables organizations to map big data results to operational systems that are built on relational databases and structured information.

Adopting master data management capabilities helps organizations create consolidated, consistent, and authoritative master data across the enterprise, enabling the distribution of master information to all operational and analytical applications, including those that contain customer, product, supplier, site, and financial information.

Oracle Master Data Management drives results by delivering the ability to cleanse, govern, and manage the quality and lifecycle of master data.

To learn more about the importance of MDM as an underlying technology that facilitates big data initiatives, read an in-depth Oracle C-Central article, "Masters of the Data: CIOs Tune into the Importance of Data Quality, Data Governance, and Master Data Management."

All the Ingredients for Success: Data Governance, Data Quality, Master Data Management

Recently Oracle sponsored a study from an independent analyst firm, Dan Power, from Hub Designs, All the Ingredients for Success: Data Governance, Data Quality and Master Data Management. Please click to download this latest paper from our Oracle Master Data Management resource kit. This paper discusses the role the data quality plays as an equal component of an enterprise information management or master data management initiative, typical business considerations for data quality, as well as best practices for integrating multi-domain MDM with customer/party data quality and product data quality.

Excerpt from the paper:

Today, businesses need to have the Single View of their master data, and to be able to “Create Once, Use Many” in order to be lean, and indeed, to survive. The silos that are still so prevalent do nothing but increase costs, hurt business and IT agility, and result in bad decisions being made (because of low quality, inaccurate, inconsistent data). If we implement Enterprise Data Quality tools, master data management solutions, and remember that these technologies must be driven by business-led data governance organizations, we’ll be able to break down those silos, and have enterprise-wide master data repositories that lead to streamlined processes, lower costs, better decisions, and more agile organizations that can compete better in global markets.

A quick example: A UK travel company restated its 2009 financial results due to issues arising from using two separate IT systems after the 2007 merger of two companies, in the amount of $191.8 million US dollars (£117m). This type of persistent operating silo is all too common in the companies I see, but this is probably a worst case scenario. But look for those costs that MDM, data governance and data quality can help your enterprise avoid, the revenue increases they can help you realize, and the compliance improvement and agility increases they can bring to your company. Those reductions, improvements and increases are very real. I’ve worked with enough companies now to know firsthand that MDM is not a fad or a trend, but a real force in the marketplace. And it’s experiencing growth of 18% at a time when the enterprise software market as a whole is only growing at about 5.6%.
