LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Baseline Consulting, an acknowledged leader in information design and deployment to improve business performance and realize strategic objectives, today released the results of an international market survey which found that approximately one-third of enterprise organizations worldwide have undertaken more than two Master Data Management (MDM) implementations, suggesting that MDM has moved beyond the pilot stage and is coming of age.
The survey, titled Master Data Management Projects in Practice, was conducted to gain deeper insight into the levels of expertise, experience and usage of systems integrators specifically related to undertaking MDM implementations. Baseline Consulting was a sponsor of the survey.
“Increasingly, organizations are turning to MDM as a key enabler in improving the quality, timeliness, and reliability of business intelligence with the ultimate goal of improving business performance,” said Andy Hayler, CEO of The Information Difference Company which conducted the survey. “Against this backdrop of growth, organizations are increasingly turning to Systems Integrators (SIs) for help with architecture and implementation services. We believe it important for end-user organizations, SIs and MDM software vendors to understand the current position and the degree of satisfaction, confidence and success that SIs deliver.”
Key findings from the research study included the following:
“This survey suggests that companies are becoming increasingly savvy about the MDM value proposition,” said Jill Dyche, partner and co-founder of Baseline Consulting. “This informs a more deliberate approach to MDM development, including requirements gathering, business case development, and vendor selection. And it confirms our suspicions that 2010 will be the year of implementation for serious data integration initiatives!”
More than 130 respondents completed the survey from countries worldwide. A high proportion (more than 40 percent) of the respondents came from companies with annual revenues greater than $1 billion. To view the complete survey, visit: http://www.baseline-consulting.com/mdm-survey
