During this webinar David Loshin from TDWI will discuss the differences between a pre-packaged and model-driven MDM approach – the costs vs. benefits of both, how to calculate effort and cost using MDM Cost Calculator, and crucial recommendations to selecting the right approach.
Fundamentally, there are two different approaches to modeling MDM – (1) prepackaged, and (2) business model-driven. Each approach determines if the data model is fixed or flexible, web services are pre-generated or dynamically generated, and user interfaces are pre-defined or user-defined. The cost vs. benefits of taking one approach vs. another can be substantial – (1) implementation time can be weeks vs. years, (2) total cost of ownership can be miniscule vs. multiple. In short, one approach will enable MDM to adapt to your business requirements while the other approach will dictate that your requirements adapt to MDM’s capabilities – the opposite.
