ECCMA is a not-for-profit International Association of Master Data Quality Managers set up in 1999, to develop and maintain open solutions for Faster – Better – Cheaper access to authoritative master data.
When developing e-commerce initiatives and strategies, most organizations today realize the benefits of open standards for content. These benefits include improved competition, interconnectivity and interoperability. In order to establish a true standard there must be processes and procedures that allow for equal participation among all interested parties. Participating in standards development is one of the best ways to stay informed and to build close relationships with companies around the world. Electronic coding standards touch every business, and everyone can participate in and influence standards development.To Learn More

ECCMA Master Data Cataloging & Validation Tool
As companies are embarking on their master data improvement efforts, there is frequently a need for an intracompany consolidated material and service catalog to help improve visibility across multiple, disparate and disconnected ERP systems. Simple, improved visibility and search combined with the ability for requisitioners and procurement staff to use web based cataloging to quickly create standardized purchase order descriptions and classifications is often all that is needed to start realizing supply chain cost efficiency in preparation for a larger and more comprehensive MDM software initiative.
The ECCMA Data Cleansing Project Scoping Study is designed to provide ECCMA members with an independent and authoritative assessment of the quality of their data prior to contracting for data cleansing services. The objective is to define the quantity and quality of the source data and provide a framework for measuring the quality of the data to be delivered by the contractor. The ECCMA Scoping Study helps companies focus on those items which matter most, saving precious time and money in the MDM improvement efforts.
