How is Social MDM different?

Intriguing post by Henrik Sørensen on Data Quality: “Every organization should very carefully assess if they are good at maintaining different aspects of their internal master data (Hint: Many aren’t).”

In a recent interview with yours truly on the Fliptop blog I had the chance to answer a question about how Social MDM is different from traditional MDM (Master Data Management). Check out the interview here.

As said in the interview I think that:

“The main difference between MDM as it has been practiced until now and Social MDM is that traditional MDM has been around handling internal master data and Social MDM will be more around exploiting external reference data and sharing those data.”

This is in line with a take away from the MDM Summit Europe 2013 as reported in the post Adding 180 Degrees to MDM.

But, as asked by a member of the Social MDM group on LinkedIn:

Personal Branding Essentials…

Letters from the Library

The Disrupt NYC 2013 Hackathon winners were just announced (congratulations, Rambler!). But amidst all the celebration, it’s important to remember that it’s been a very long and largely sleepless 30-hour road to victory for the 164 teams that presented onstage today.

Check it all out in the video embedded above.
