Introduction to Microsoft’s Master Data Services (MDS) Presentation Slides

Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation “Introduction to Microsoft’s Master Data Services (MDS)” at the Houston Area SQL Server User Group Monthly Meeting.

Here is the PowerPoint presentation: Introduction to Microsoft’s Master Data Services (MDS).

Introduction to Microsoft’s Master Data Services (MDS)

Companies struggle with consolidating the same set of data from multiple systems to accurately report on critical business information. For example, having customer lists in multiple systems that often have the same customer in more than one list, sometimes with a different spelling. Master Data Services is bundled with SQL Server 2012 to help resolve many of the Master Data Management issues that companies are faced with when integrating data. In this session, James will show an overview of Master Data Services 2012, including the out of the box Web UI, the highly developed Excel Add-in, and how to get started with loading MDS with your data.
