Master Data Management (MDM), a specialist South African provider of data management solutions, has announced a reseller agreement with data governance solution provider Global Data Excellence (GDE).  This will provide South African and African businesses with access to a solution that assist to deliver successful data governance through MDM.

According to MDM’s Gary Allemann, “GDE’s unique show me the money approach bridges the gap between the business and IT data communities and addresses the common pitfalls that hamper successful data governance. In particular, we were impressed by the ability to visualise the financial impact of poor data from various perspectives, as well as by the platform’s support for both issue resolution and root cause assessment.”

GDE provides two core products, both of which will be provided by MDM. The Data Excellence Framework describes the methodology, processes and roles required to generate business value by supporting the cultural shift to a focus on data excellence. The framework places the business transaction at the centre of data quality and data governance by aligning and linking business, IT and data management objectives.

The Data Excellence Management System, or DEMS, is a data governance application which measures and governs non-compliant data in terms of rands and cents through the automated support of the data excellence framework.  The system measures the value and impact of data on business operations and presents this visually – allowing the business to prioritize and manage the fixing of poor quality data using the inbuilt issue management capabilities.

According to Dr. Walid el Abed, CEO and founder of Global Data Excellence: “MDM shares our vision that the goal of data governance must be to enable business improvement, and have a track record of delivering on this vision.  Local companies can now enhance their data governance implementations using our proven platform and framework.”
