I just returned from the TDWI Solution Summit: Master Data, Quality, and Governance and have to say I came away impressed. This was a hosted event, with 100 attendees from a variety of industries. The presentations were high quality and there were no high-pressure sales pitches from the myriad of vendors that were present. The best presentations were the case studies from those in the trenches. Several IT leaders presented the solutions they had implemented in their organizations and the lessons learned along the way. One of the best presentations was on the Five Levels of MDM Maturity by Evan Levy of Baseline Consulting. It was very informative and will help with driving an MDM solution within our organization. Overall, the agenda, the presentations, and the venue were all top notch and very professionally run. I would recommend this summit to anyone currently implementing or envisioning an MDM solution.
