Hi Pasi,

MDM stands fro Master data Management and it is used to import the master data from various source systems, cleans it, manages it, governs it and export the data back to the source systems.

Hence, there is a lot integration involved when it comes to MDM. And sometimes when the format of file exchange is not same between MDM and the other systems, a middle war is required. And as you have experience in XI, you can always use that knowledge in MDM scenarios and projects.

So, by extending your knowledge bank to MDM, you can become very valuable in the market. Also, as companies will be moving to ESOA, MDM will become more important in the landscape as MDM is the base for ESOA.

MDM is a hot cake in the market and I would adive you to go with it. Please refer to some very useful links which are very useful for people who are thinking of learning MDM. The links answer important questions such as How is career in MDM and how to learn MDM etc.

Please go through these links below for better understanding: - Installation & Implementation Documentation Center ( MDM )
