Embarcadero Webinar: Five Steps to Mastering Master Data Management


SAN FRANCISCO – Nov. 16, 2009 — On Thursday, November 19 at 11 a.m. PST, join Embarcadero and guest presenter, Ron Lewis, senior security analyst with CDO Technologies, and learn how a solid metadata repository can support data governance and increase the effectiveness of master data use.

Data and metadata are growing at exponential rates, yet several strategies to properly address and manage the data have failed. This has left many organizations to make critical mistakes and fall short on expected ROI for building enterprise metadata repositories. However, many of these mistakes are avoidable.

During this one-hour webinar, Lewis will explain:
- How to approach defining the objectives of a enterprise metadata repository
- Five steps to building a successful metadata repository
- How to decide what tools to use to design, build and manage a metadata repository
- How a properly constructed metadata repository addresses the key master data management challenges of:
o Ensuring that master data management initiatives are perceived as “enterprise wide”
o Implementing and enforcing data governance
o Increasing the effectiveness of master data use to enhance profitability
