Master data is a subset of big data and master data management (MDM) can provide a compelling starting point for big data analysis. MDM, by definition, focuses on the highest value entities within an organization.

NYCG’s resources identify Integration points between MDM and big data that include ingesting and analyzing unstructured data, creating master data entities, loading new profile information into the MDM system, sharing master data records or entities with the big data platform as the basis for big data analysis, and reusing the MDM matching capabilities in the big data platform such as customer matching.
