Master data management (MDM) is both a technology and methodology for linking, centralizing, and maintaining enterprise data to a singular point of reference. MDM programs typically include a methodology to support data governance and ensure data quality across the enterprise. This requires a common definition of terms and entities across an organization and a consistent data quality approach for classifying, transforming, augmenting, mastering, securing, delivering, and refreshing enterprise data.

MDM in the past incorporated objects such as customer, product, supplier, and other specific domains. Today, most MDM systems can handle multi-domain models across multi-cloud architectures.
