Typically, your company’s MDM will point you toward a core domain within your organization such as a partner, customer or facility. However, oftentimes domains have more than one relationship. In fact, more often than not, you’ll likely need to gather and utilize data from many domains in order to get an expansive view of your business.

Thanks to multidimensional MDM, that data retrieval is possible. It allows users to obtain the 360-degree view they need and to deliver the value of reliable data at the core of their business to other domains without all of the heavy lifting.

In this latest “Ask the Experts” video, I provide an example within the healthcare industry that illustrates the importance of multidimensional MDM and how its value can be applied.
