Level:  Intermediate

This session will describe OneAmerica's evolution of an initial MDM program into a much broader Hub-n-Spoke data sharing environment: how we started, discoveries made, approaches enhanced, what worked, what didn't, and the path ahead of us.

Discussion topics include:

  • The Early Years (initial MDM project, focus and sponsorship)
  • The Realization (sharing data across the Enterprise)
  • The Artifacts (design approach, common data & integration patterns)
  • The Success & Struggle (effect on the Enterprise, culture and organization)
  • The Look Ahead (keep moving forward, still much to do)

Regardless of the approach used within your organization, perhaps this presentation will provide a few ideas to help you along your data management journey.
