It would be too easy to make the just-published developerWorks Tech Trends report our Pick of the Week. (That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it – it’s here). Instead we’re giving this week’s prize to IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management V10, which got a huge amount of love from our readers in the November issue of the newsletter, and in tweets before and after the newsletter was published.
The reason for all the excitement? V10 brings together master data management (MDM) and business process management (BPM) – a marriage made in data governance heaven (if also, admittedly, in acronym hell). Specifically, InfoSphere Master Data Management V10 includes IBM BPM Express, which means that out of the box, customers have the BPM capabilities they need to implement policies and coordinate multi-step and multi-role workflows for data stewardship and governance.
That’s a bit of a mouthful. If you’re new to MDM in general and InfoSphere MDM in particular, read How master data management serves the business, a white paper from IBM (NOTE: This white paper was published BEFORE V10 was released).To learn more about the specific benefits of combining MDM and BPM, attend an IBM-sponsored webcast on December 1 (the Thursday after Thanksgiving). And to read about all the new features and capabilities in InfoSphere Master Data Management V10, visit this web page.
NOTE: There will be no Pick of the Week next week due to the Thanksgiving (U.S.) holiday. See you December 2!
