Introduction[edit]

  • Cleaned up first two paragraphs to correct the definition of MDM:
    • Added references to the definitions
    • Corrected the impression that MDM only covers reference data. Mastering is about providing a master copy of data and that may include transactional (e.g. stock from both stores and warehouse systems) or analytical data (from multiple data marts) too.
    • Moved the reference to "in computing" to the tools section in paragraph 3. As true MDM requires changes to business processes, (and is unlikely to suceed without the proper data goverenance roles in place, only the tooling definition relates to "computing".
