Master Data Management (MDM) compares client records from disparate systems and links them together, creating a Master Demographic Record for each citizen receiving state services.
A variety of systems scattered throughout ND State Government contain information about the clients they serve. Each of these systems maintains its own copy of demographic data, which inevitably differs from system to system. MDM utilizes IBM's Initiate Master Data Service to score, match, and consolidate data into a single record.
NOTE: MDM is the evolution of what was historically referred to as Master Client Index (MCI).
ITD's Work Management System (WMS) may be used to submit a "General Server" Service Request. Be as descriptive as possible when describing the "Task to Be Completed" and/or "Comments/Special Instructions," and be sure to mention the "MDM."
Rates are determined by record count. Licenses are purchased from the vendor, and prices vary depending upon quantity. Therefore, cost estimates are developed on a case-by-case basis.
Software development is the act of translating user requirements into software systems.
Business Intelligence (BI) refers to the skills, processes, technologies, applications, and practices used to support decision making.
