MDM (Master Data Management) projects may have a bad name as large IT projects using huge amount of resources, taken a lot of time and ending up with producing very little measurable results.
This phenomenon isn’t new at all in the IT world. There are often two answers to that challenge:
- Don’t treat it as an IT project. It’s all about people and culture.
- Do it the agile way using IT.
I have earlier written some agile posts about Lean MDM and Eating the MDM Elephant and the relevance of having MDM technology that supports the agile way has in my eyes only become more and more apparent since then.
What are your experiences? Who is doing agile MDM – using IT? Is it good?
