Does Big Data Mean Big MDM?


Does Big Data Mean Big MDM?

A New Research Report from The Information Difference – November 2012

There has been a great deal of recent interest in the industry about how to deal with so-called Big Data, which is defined as follows: “Big Data is the term applied to data sets whose size is beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. (Source: Wikipedia)”.

Despite this media attention there is scant concrete information on how organizations are addressing the issues underlying Big Data. How does this relate, if at all, to master data management (MDM), and what are organizations doing to consider the impact of the Big Data trend on MDM initiatives? In short, what do organizations believe to be the link between Big Data and MDM? This survey, which was sponsored by Kalido and SAP, aims to answer these questions.

The report has 25 pages.
