To meet this project’s challenges, we held a series of workshops with key business stakeholders. We determined the extent of information which the organisation wished to manage via the MDM solution and created a project plan composed of several sub-projects to allow an iterative implementation.
We held several phases, the first of which involved installing Semarchy Convergence for MDM as the MDM solution. We configured and prioritised data sources and integrated them with the solution. This done, a second phase involved review and tuning of source data matching to ensure a high degree of positive automatic matches. The final phase of the project consisted of providing “golden data” from the MDM solution to business end-users and republishing it back to the original source systems to cleanse their data and enable better business decision making.
