I awoke bright and early Wednesday morning and engaged in my regular routine. After firing up the coffeemaker, I started checking email, Twitter, Google Analytics and Amazon. Why Amazon? I
compulsively like to know how my books are selling.
Occupational hazard, I suppose.

In my last post I shared an experience about an overloaded use of a twitter hashtag that at first surprised me: the use of one tagged term (MDM) addressing two separate communities of interest (master data management vs. mobile device management). But then it occurred to me that this probably happens all the time, not just among small caches of practitioners. In any social media stream, each post is frequently accompanied by at least one tag, if not more.

In my previous post, I briefly examined what I see as the three biggest challenges for Social MDM (Identity, Relevancy, and Privacy) from the perspective of organizations looking to integrate social media data into their master data management (MDM) implementations. In this post, I want to shift the perspective to how customers of these organizations will perceive Social MDM.

ZDNet recently held an online data ownership debate. To be sure, much of the debate concerned consumer technologies and websites. Core philosophical questions centered around whether Facebook or Twitter “owned” its users’ photos, status updates, relationships, and “the data” at large.

I recently joined the new LinkedIn Group for Social MDM created by Henrik Liliendahl Sørensen for promoting vendor-neutral discussions about the integration of social media data into master data management (MDM) implementations. In this blog post, I would like to ponder just how social MDM can get by briefly examining what I see as its three biggest challenges.

In which Jill summarizes what was discussed—and what was imbibed—at the Pacific Northwest BI Summit.
Hey, who’s that dude? He looks familiar. Didn’t we meet him over cheap rosé at one of those mega-vendor conferences? The one where some executive was talking about The New Age of Information, Part Deux.? Or maybe it was someone who looked like him. They all blend together after a while, don’t they, collapsing under the weight of so much spin?

Who owns your online persona? For example, if you create a Facebook account (or LinkedIn, or MySpace, or gmail, or Yahoo, or whatever), who is ultimately accountable for the management of the data that is on the account? Is it the account creator or the company with whom the account is made?

I’ve written about this before, but as data management professionals (data geeks), at one point or another each one of us has most likely had to manage data about “people.” Data geeks have categorized this type of data into what is commonly called “party” data and trust me, if you start talking about any sort of data at most “real” parties, nobody is going to want to hang out with you at the party. I’ve done it; I’ve been made fun of because of it. It will never make you the life of the party. There are just plain so many better things to talk about over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
