Abstract: As systems become more distributed one of the challenges lies in how to keep all the data synchronized between systems. Different data definitions and both the technical and functional level, delays in propagating data resulting in missing data or data mismatch, and distributed control at the field level resulting in conflicting data sets are examples of the problems you may encounter. This presentation will discuss the patterns of Master Data Management (MDM) that can be used to address these issues with a focus on traditional ERP systems.
