Session Outline

In large organisations, you cannot rely on Master Data to get self-organised. But centralising everything around Master Data may not be the best choice, either. In this session, I would like to share experiences and good practices, observed and applied throughout two decades of dealing with Master Data.

Key Takeaways

  • What are important aspects of Master Data Management?
  • What should be centralised, what should be delegated into the field?
  • What would be a good place for the centralised aspects of Master Data Management?
  • What needs to be in place to successfully orchestrate a corporate Master Data flea circus?
