Master Data Management

Master Data Management, Made Accessible by Talend

Most businesses have by now heard about master data management as a means to improve the quality and utilization of key enterprise data. The benefits reported by organizations employing master data management (MDM) processes include more effective marketing and sales programs, reduced operational costs, more far-sighted business intelligence, and enhanced compliance with corporate policies and regulatory requirements. To date, however, the demonstrated benefits of master data management have remained out of the reach of most organizations. Proprietary MDM solutions are enormously expensive at a time when most businesses are tightly managing their IT budgets. In-house solutions for master data management, meanwhile, are tremendously complex and difficult to build and maintain.

Talend, the leading provider of open source integration software, has now democratized master data management by developing the first complete open source MDM solution.
