A-to-Z of Master Data Services in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
While your enterprise applications and infrastructure technology change rapidly, the underlying Information Architecture must transcend those evolutions and maintain data consistently over long periods of time. No other aspect of architecture has similar expectations regarding its near-infinite longevity. Master Data Services, a new component of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, aims to deliver the best Master Data Management in a simple and practical way. This session will introduce the basis of the MDM process: data acquisition and import, modeling and export through subscriptions. We will pay particular attention to the new data modeling architecture and its taxonomy, before diving into a practical demo of this technology. The main aim is to show you an innovative way to better manage, track, audit for compliance and deliver multiple versions of the same data to a multitude of operational, line-of-business, warehouse and analytical systems.
