Over the years, I have worked with many customers to help deliver successful MDM projects. It’s immensely entertaining to be involved with clients directly, working with them on a day-to-day basis and help solve their data quality issues. I have thoroughly enjoyed these engagements as well as the celebration, which follows when a project (or at least portion of it anyway) gets completed successfully. The recognition and accolades are a huge bounty that I cherish. After all, who doesn’t like a little bit of pampering for the hard work they put in?

Similar sentiments are attached to writing I do here on my MDM blog – A Geek’s Point of View. If an article creates a buzz and gets a good feedback, I think I have earned my fair share for the time I invest here.

Last year my blog was selected by BizTech Magazine as one of 50 Must-Read IT Blogs of 2013. While I consider this as an overgenerous honor, it sure was an indication of how www.mdmdgeek.com has created enormous impression just 3 years since its inception. I would like to think of it as a result of the quality content coming straight out of my experience and my drive towards everything Master Data Management.

Here is the quote from BizTech Magazine:

No, this isn’t a blog about how to secure your company’s iPhones and Android devices. IBM technical specialist Prashant Chandramohan educates readers on the benefits of the other MDM: Master Data Management software.

Last week, Exigent Networks, a Business Technology Solutions company published this beautiful info-graphic highlighting the best bloggers in the niche of 2014. I am thrilled to see www.mdmgeek.com highlighted here again. The info-graphic features my blog with following quote, a true reflection of its positive impact on the MDM community.

MDM Geek is a uniquely excellent IT blog as it specializes in the area of master data management software. It is vital resource for IT professionals who have to deal with MDM on a regular basis. Helmed by IBM Technical Specialist Prashant Chandramohan, the blog educates readers on the benefits of MDM and provides expert tips and best practices guides to readers.

These are proud moments and something I commemorate. It feels good to know that hard work and ‘give-back’ attitude we possess doesn’t go un-noticed. And here is a promise – while I am at the cross roads (hint!), I will continue to write and share what I have learnt in my decade long experience in this awesome world of master data, the data that I breathe and live.
