(slightly off-topic) does MDM store metrics?

0 votes
Dear Vaulters,


I know no better place to ask it: does MDM store metrics or only attributes (which can be either text or numeric, but are always stable attributes?)

It might be I am not well informed about MDM fora, but as DV is quite a good methodology for MDM I though here might be where sucessfull MDM managers would be found.

Dan, sorry if it is tooooo off-topic - I'll remove the question if you care to.

Best regards,

Hi Fabio,

A metric is something you measure, so it should depend on the measurement circumstances.
The way you describe these circumstances could be stored and managed master data, which would be used as a tool to conform the description of the measurement.

That said, of course numeric values can represent attributes/features of objects/states etc.
Think about a location dimension(latitude,longitude,postal code, street adress number) or products (width,length, depth, weight) as an example.
Therefore numeric values can be stored and managed as master data also.

I hope this helps.

With kind regards,
Jacob Siemaszko
