Master Data Management

Achieve Tangible Process Improvements with Enterprise MDM

Today’s challenging marketplace demands that companies across industries ensure regulatory compliance and increase operational efficiencies and effectiveness. Companies can no longer employ the same high-cost business models nor accept inefficiencies in operations that were once considered a cost of doing business. Instead, companies today are transforming their businesses to be more agile and efficient, implementing new business models that can more effectively service their customers at lower costs, and weeding out process inefficiencies. A necessity to support this transformation is information and an enabler for quality, integrated information is master data management.

Master Data Management (MDM) is the one discipline that impacts virtually all industries and all business processes. It is central to data quality, consistency, transparency, and integration and for CIOs it is one of the few areas that can directly impact the bottom-line efficiency of a company’s overall application portfolio. To date many MDM programs, even successful programs, have not fully delivered on the promise of MDM, often because solutions have been implemented as point solutions addressing a specific need. At HighPoint, we believe an enterprise view of MDM with a strong governance framework is the key to delivering value. We approach MDM from a business process perspective in order to assist our clients in defining strategies, governance, and solutions that can support the enterprise and achieve tangible process improvements.
