A global professional services and audit firm providing assurance, tax planning and compliance, and consulting services sought a robust master data management (MDM) system to manage enterprise data.

The company’s decentralized data framework provided client, people, and corporate information to stakeholders. However, it diluted the quality of data, which affected the ability to take business decisions. Moreover, each region functioned as a standalone entity without unified information management.

Infosys implemented a master data management (MDM) solution by leveraging Informatica MDM.

Our team proposed a phased MDM approach: establish core data and data profiles, validate data and de-duplicate data, generate and publish master data, and implement data governance models.
