” Transform your data into a trusted corporate asset “
Master Data Management (or MDM) is a comprehensive method of enabling an enterprise to link all of the relevant data within its critical line of business applications into a single unified view or reference base. When properly done, MDM streamlines data sharing among personnel and departments. In addition, MDM can facilitate computing in multiple system architectures, platforms and applications. The benefits of the MDM paradigm increase as the number and diversity of organizational departments, worker roles and computing applications expand.
When companies merge, the implementation of MDM can minimize confusion and optimize the efficiency of the new, larger organization. For MDM to function at its best, all personnel and departments must be coached on how data is to be formatted, stored and accessed. Frequent, coordinated updates to the master data file are also essential.
Annik offers unique value within your MDM initiatives as we have developed a strong competency and understanding around MDM’s strategic purpose, the necessity to blend and direct technology, process, and personnel toward the goal of developing a single view of the key business entities (customer, supplier, partner, product, campaign, etc).
Annik can integrate our Data Quality and Governance solutions as key components within your MDM program, enabling you to leverage proven experience and capabilities in addition to tools and processes inspired by delivery excellence and reinforced with Six Sigma methodologies.

We focus our solutions and services to provide you with tangible gains in effective use of your data deploying processes – technical and manual – to cleanse, repair hierarchies, link, merge and standardize to enable you to achieve gains in overall quality and effectiveness of those assets.
Good data quality means that an organization’s data is accurate, complete, consistent, timely, unique, and valid. Sound business decisions rely upon clean and consistent data sources that provide information about an organization’s products, suppliers, financial details, and most importantly, their customers. The better the data, the more clearly it presents an accurate, consolidated view of the customer, across systems, departments and line of business and the more likely that an organization will be in a position to meet or exceed its goals.
Data Quality describes various categories of desirable attributes (or dimensions) of data. These include accuracy, currency, completeness and usability.
