Live Tweeporting from #GartnerMDM: Opening Sessions

The following is an attempt to report via my tweetstream on 3 important opening sessions of the #GartnerMDM Summit in London.

MDM Concepts & Introduction, by Bill O’Kane

  • Been attempting to unify/master data for 30 yrs. Guess what? Biz success happened anyway! O'Kane #GartnerMDM
  • #MDM value added: Run the Business < Grow the Business < Transform the Business. #GartnerMDM
  • "Don't boil the ocean, start small" - very wise advice from O'Kane at #GartnerMDM
  • #MDM often the first foray into #SOA: opportunity for adding real-time. #Holistic integration? #GartnerMDM
  • Exec sponsorship changes often fatal to #MDM. Sponsorship by CFO usually effective – less turnover in position. #GartnerMDM

Opening Keynote

  • 420 attendees from 23 countries at #GartnerMDM. No #dataquality issue in country names this year?
  • Cloud, information, social, mobile: unstoppable forces, or more opportunities? Or both? #GartnerMDM
  • #SocialData & #Mobile: vast amounts of information generated about your company. How do you analyze it? Can't govern but link. #GartnerMDM
  • Lots of barriers to moving #MDM into the #Cloud. I think it's more about bringing Cloud/#SaaS data into MDM. #GartnerMDM
  • No high profile story of #MDM failure... But does MDM have the potential to be controversial & raise public interest? #GartnerMDM

Panel

(On the panel, two end users and Andrew White played the “Agree/Disagree” game on some key questions surrounding MDM.)

  • Panel arguing whether #MDM projects can prove hard savings ROI. #GartnerMDM
  • Panel agrees that #MDM is not an IT initiative. Still, need to give a chance to IT to make it work or it's wishful thinking! #GartnerMDM
  • If you don't have all your data in the ERP, ERP can't drive your MDM! #duh #bestofbreed #GartnerMDM
  • Key to resilience of #MDM programs is to demonstrate value, beyond original sponsors. #panel #GartnerMDM
  • #MDM not mature enough to deal with unstructured data. Will come later. #GartnerMDM
  • RT @Paul_MDM: #GartnerMDM, more than 50% of audience think their BI provides bad results! (Obviously depends on job responsibilities)
