Through a series of real-life scenarios, the course familiarizes you with a wide range of Kalido MDM functionalities and highlights features to make you a better Kalido Developer, Data Steward or Administrator. In the course, you are a Kalido Developer in a fictitious company with an existing MDM implementation.

Forrester Wave: Master Data Management

Delivering clean, accurate, and consistent master data
is critical for efficient business processes.

But it isn’t enough to simply get clean data – you need to keep it clean, too. And the best way to keep data clean is to proactively engage the people who know the most about the data in the process.

Forrester, a leading independent technology and market research company, has cited Kalido MDM as a “Strong Performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Master Data Management Solutions, Q1 2016. According to the Forrester Wave report author, Senior Analyst Michele Goetz, “The Kalido MDM tool makes master data management (MDM) easy for data stewards and subject matter experts (SME).”
