RDM Field Report + Market Survey
In his opening remarks to the MDM & Data Governance Summits attendees, Aaron Zornes, Chief Research Officer of the MDM Institute, described the institute’s motivation for researching reference data.
“Reference data management, or RDM, is increasingly recognized an important category of master data management. We wanted to find out if the conventional characterization of reference data—simple information like country codes—was accurate. Our research finds this is clearly not the case.
"Orchestra Networks’ EBX5 is a proven multi-domain RDM hub. Due to the highly inter-related nature of reference data, this semantic model-based MDM solution provides a flexible and scalable RDM solution to provide both enterprise-scalable performance and distributed architectures. Additionally, its strong workflow, hierarchy management, and version control features address the need for RDM governance."
