Master Data Management In Telecoms
Ovum, November 2008, Pages: 20
Telcos need to establish a firm grip on their core information assets - in other words, data about their customers, products and (network) assets which form the cornerstones of the telco business. The best place to start is with master data management (MDM), which provides a process to ensure the consistency, accuracy, stewardship and accountability of those core information assets.
