Rob Karel and I recently had a chance to not only visit, but also co-moderate a panel on Data Governance at the CDI-MDM conference on March 26th and 27th at the San Francisco Marriott. Though master data management/ customer hub pentetration in the enterprise still hovers in the high single digits, its obvious the energy, activity, and investment around MDM continues to grow. Some quick observations from speaking with attendees and vendors at the event:
In general this event was a great chance to catch up with others evangelizing, pursuing, and/or implementing MDM tools and solutions. And as always, it was great to see familiar faces from DataFlux, Initiate, Siperian, Oracle, Pursima, IBM, VisionWare and i2 at the event. Special thanks to Aaron Zornes at the CDI-MDM institute.
