Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 include a Master Data Management system. It isn’t the easiest thing in the world to use, but none of them are.

    IBM used to have some great in-depth information on their web site(s). Years ago, they did presentations at user groups. don't know if they had formal classes. My memory says there may have been a Red Book on MDM. Master Data Management is a good idea. We all have known about it for years and years. But only in the past decade or so has it had a name; MDM. Yup, it can be hard to implement - especially in an already existing application or system. Imagine that any one piece of data exists in only ONE place. No more having to update a mailing address in multiple places... > customer master file > quarterly catalog mailing file > billing dept file > customer contact file > repair dept > and don't forget the secretary's own personal copy ... instead, the mailing address exists in ONE spot (and no you can't have your own copy). In a very real sense, MDM is a cousin to proper relational design. But MDM does not require an RDBMS. MDM can be applied to any file structure; VSAM, flat files, whatever. The goal is to remove redundant data. Of course, all of this goes right out the window as soon as you start building data marts and warehouses.
