Evan Levy: MDM change management isn't as complex as business processing reengineering. It doesn't need to be as complex as business change management. Really, it's about organizing and being prepared and scheduling those details to support the business users and the application systems. If there's one thing we can offer as a take away or a suggestion, it's just plan in advance.
