This weekend I noticed a tweet from the MDM tool vendor Orchestra Networks:
There is clearly something completely wrong with this tweet. Why on earth should a French company use an American date format?
Apart from that there is a very good point. Why should tool vendors work on solving imaginable future master data management issues as integrating social network profiles with traditional customer master data while there are plenty of issues that need a better solution today?
Personally I think social MDM is going to be huge. I had some of my first musings on the subject some years ago in the post Social Master Data Management. Probably we will start with some Lean Social MDM, and that is honestly also as far as I have explored this field until now.
What about you. Do you want social MDM?
