Webinar: Strategic Data Management – Data Mesh meets MDM

Aika: 10.2.2022

Solita Strategic data management: Data Mesh meets MDM webinar

Strategic Data Management: Data Mesh meets MDM.
Enabling data mesh through master data management and data as a product.

How to design and architect a modern and scalable distributed ecosystem (a data mesh) built on consolidated MDM data products? 

In this session on 10.2.2022 at 10.00 – 11.00 EET, we will first clarify the concept of data as a product. We will then present in practice how traditional master data management (MDM) is ‘just another’ set of data products enabling a modern distributed data management approach. Finally, we will share our views on why an API strategy is a key enabler for making this all work.

You will learn: 

  • Why and how data as a product is different to data (as an) asset
  • The traditional context of master data management (MDM) and data consolidation
  • Why MDM is still relevant and business critical in a modern, distributed data mesh
  • Why an API strategy is essential and how it enables the delivery of data products (like MDM)

This is the second part of Solita’s Strategic data management webinar series.
