    CDI vs MDM: A Primer

    Peruse any industry publication these days and you'll find references to Master Data Management - MDM - and Customer Data Integration - CDI --as "hot" topics. But as is often the case with emerging technology, there is confusion about what is meant by the terms and the technology.

    To make things even more unclear, the terms Customer Data Integration and Master Data Management are frequently used interchangeably. Come and hear Paul Friedman, founder and CTO of Purisma, the innovative Customer Data Integration vendor, clarify the technologies.
