WSO2 Summer School Features Free Class on Optimizing Master Data Management in an Enterprise SOA

Webinar-Based Training on July 13, 2011 Explores Best Practices, Solution Patterns and Technologies SOA Developers and Architects Can Employ to Leverage Existing Master Data

Palo Alto, CA – July 6, 2011 - Increasingly enterprises are implementing master data management (MDM) solutions to ensure the consistency of information across the organization, enabling better decision-making and more efficient operations. However, adapting master data formats to different data models within a service-oriented architecture (SOA) often poses significant challenges. Some IT architects and developers turn to data duplication as a temporary workaround, but this approach leads to system instability and data inconsistency. A more secure, long-term solution for leveraging existing master data in an SOA is to use middleware as the basis for implementing MDM and virtual MDM (VMDM) concepts.

IT architects and developers can learn how to optimize master data processes by attending the interactive online class, “Master Data Management in Your SOA.” The two-hour session is being offered at no cost as a part of the WSO2 SOA Summer School program. It will be held on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific. To participate, register at

The Master Data Management class will:

  • Introduce core MDM, VMDM and master data repository concepts.
  • Explore MDM and VMDM solution patterns, including the use of data adapters and an event-driven architecture.
  • Discuss the role of MDM within an SOA and in relationship to data governance.
  • Examine real-world MDM case studies in the banking, retail, and financial trading sectors.
  • Demonstrate MDM and VMDM implementation models using the award-winning open source WSO2 Carbon middleware platform.

Leading the class are Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2 director of solutions architecture, and Supun Kamburugamuva, WSO2 technical lead and WSO2 ESB product manager. In addition to their roles as Apache Software Foundation committers and their track records in product innovation, Asanka and Supun bring proven expertise in helping WSO2 enterprise customers to successfully implement MDM solutions.
