Industry expert David Loshin will provide data modeling insights for Master Data Management (MDM) systems

SAN FRANCISCO — May 11, 2015 — Embarcadero Technologies, is hosting a webinar on Thursday May 14, 2015 to provide DBAs, data architects and SQL developers with data modeling insights for Master Data Management (MDM) systems. The webinar will be hosted by recognized thought leader David Loshin, who brings industry expertise in data quality, MDM, and business intelligence. The webinar follows Embarcadero’s major new XE7 release of its award-winning flagship data architecture suite, ER/Studio.

Webinar: Model Confidence for Master Data

Although master data management (MDM) systems have been deployed in numerous industries and organizations, the vision of creating an overall “single source of truth” is beginning to yield to a more pragmatic perspective of providing visibility to shared information about uniquely-identifiable entities within the enterprise. This more mature approach sheds light on some of the potential gaps associated with the typical out-of-the-box data models for customer or product. In this webinar, David Loshin will address data modeling for MDM systems, and share insights about:

  • Some of the complexities emerging from reliance on canned master data models;
  • Alternatives for revising how master data entities are viewed and consumed within the enterprise; and
  • How a consumption-oriented engagement process will help the master data modeler devise thoughtful conceptual and logical representations of shared master data.

David Loshin will also discuss how to reduce complexity for master data adoption, system interoperability, and legacy migration.

When: Thursday, May 14, 2015
11AM PDT / 2PM EDT

This is a 1-hour live webinar (45-min presentation followed by 15-min Q&A). Participants will be able to submit questions during the webinar. Following the webinar, an on-demand replay as well as a PDF of the slide presentation will be available to registrants.
