Gaining a more complete, trusted view of customers is a strategic goal of most organizations. The challenge is that information about customers is typically managed and stored in many different applications, management systems and data silos.

The combination of IBM InfoSphere Data Explorer and IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management addresses these challenges by creating a single, combined, trusted 360-degree view of all data related to customers, accounts, products and other entities.
