Can we leverage existing data quality tools for an MDM program?

Find out if you can leverage your existing data quality tool for your master data management (MDM) program or if you need to buy new MDM software and tools in this expert tip.

Can we leverage our existing data quality tool for our new master data management (MDM) program or do we have to buy a self-contained solution?
You might be able to leverage your data quality tool for standardizing the data, but that won't address the other functions you might need with MDM. For instance, does your data quality tool handle matching? What about tracking data lineage? How will you update multiple sources? What about business rules for security and access? As people peel back the onion of MDM, they discover the functionality they truly need doesn't exist in a "packaged' way in their organizations. They either have to build it or buy it.
