Microsoft MDS Benefits

Data Architect at a non-profit with 1,001-5,000 employees
It enables data stewards to directly interact with data on a web site or Excel without building a custom solution. This includes data stewards getting notification emails automatically when new data is loaded including a link to the specific data that needs to be updated. It also has a built-in single level of approval management that is used where versions of data need to be approved prior to publishing. The end result is more consistent data, more consistent data and fewer data silos. Reference data management is integrated via using standard automated ETL processes extracting from the published database views. This eliminates the need for one-off, silo'd and uncontrolled data management. View full review »
