After this Course
Data is the key asset of any organization. Companies want to gather information from the data, so they start business intelligence (BI) projects. However, most of the BI projects also have to deal with data quality problems. Data quality can represent a tremendous obstacle to the success of any BI project. Line of business (LOB) applications will certainly suffer from poor data quality as well.

Every company has some data that is used everywhere, in every process, in every transaction, such as customer or product data. This type of data is referred to as master data. People in charge of managing master data are usually referred to as data stewards. The processes and activities required to maintain master data is collectively referred to as master data management (MDM). In this course, you are going to learn about typical MDM problems and solutions. You will also become familiar with Microsoft tools for data quality and MDM, including Data Quality Services (DQS) and Master Data Services (MDS).
