How can reference data management support and improve your master data initiative?

The Reference Data Management (RDM) is a turnkey solution for the management of the generic lists of values shared by several business domains. It regroups the organization, maintenance and governance of all those lists that could be used in the MDM or overall IT landscape. RDM offers a seamless integration experience that makes it easy to onboard data from a wide range of data sources, ensure quality, standardization and distribution which is important for reducing and removing operational overhead.

Why is it important to manage Reference Data?.

A reflection on key challenges with the management of reference data

Reference data is scattered across domains and often redundant due to lack coordination and standardization at both the business process and technology levels.
Different applications may rely on different variations to define the same values resulting in increased complexity, effort, and cost. This could largely be avoided by defining a single source of truth through a solid Reference Data Management solution.

"It is important to think of Reference Data Management as soon as any data initiative is kicked off specially when it is a multi-domain master data initiative. RDM is an easy quick win for enterprises and a must have for any organization even at the most mature level."
