Enterprise Data Management (EDM) is an enterprise’s ability to effectively manage, integrate, disseminate, and create data for enterprise processes, entities, and applications requiring accurate and timely data delivery. EDM also addresses the concept of transmission of different datasets within applications and processes which rely on consumption of data sets to complete business transactions or processes. EDM addresses circumstances where users within an enterprise independently model, manage, store, and source data. Uncoordinated approaches can result in quality inconsistencies and data conflicts lowering the trustworthiness of data used for reporting and various operations.
EDM relates to how content gets integrated into applications as well as how the content is passed from one process to another. EDM removes organizational conflicts and issues resulting from mismanagement of data. It implements structured data delivery from data producer to data consumer. EDM comprises computing and network infrastructure, business logic and policies, and software applications used to manage enterprise data flow. Implementation of EDM requires collaboration between various departments such as finance, operations, and IT.
