There has been much talk about coordinating BPM and SOA. Now, add MDM to the mix. In a blog entry, Gartner’s Michael Blechar discusses a new report on the role Master Data Management plays in creating reusable, sharable data services.
Blechar writes that ”… ensuring that the architecture and analysis efforts of BPM, SOA and MDM projects are coordinated in a collaborative manner should be of extreme importance to business and IT management.”
Some of this should happen as part of an organization’s separate MDM effort to address the governance of data services. But collaboration is key as there is much to be learned from the data structures, workflows, and services coming out of SOA and BPM projects. Look out application architects, here comes MDM!
