Master Data as a Service

30 Oct 2006

Very interesting article by Dan Linstedt on MDaaS or “Master Data as a Service”. I think this is a great idea and probably something that could be a great business using an EII tool like MetaMatrix.

Why not host your master data off site and let someone else manage it? In addition to the normal benefits of SaaS, you could offload all the quality and cleansing aspects to a 3rd party. If that 3rd party could protect your security while also getting some sort of shared benefit across companies, seems like this could be a win-win.

Just as a plug, I really like Dan Linstedt, so keep an eye on his blog.
