Abstract: Various applications including the data quality management (DQM) have been forced to reconsider their structural aspects for deployment since the figures of cloud computing have been revealed more clearly. In enterprise computing, huge efforts to apply service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process integration (BPI) have been spent to make their information systems more agile and flexible. However, generic principles for implementing the enterprise systems should be updated owing to the advent of cloud computing. Under the practical operations with cloud computing, redeploying qualified data after cleansing, ordering and integration at prior stages depends on commissioning commercial services, despite their features as assets. Therefore, another issue could occur for example, security scope under licensing which is distinguished from the traditional security framework. In this paper, we present the operational issues of master data management (MDM) as one of the sub-fields of DQM. We will touch on the relationship with security requirements under cloud computing and will sketch the formularisation which will become the foundation when considering suitable operational rules.

Keywords: data quality management; DQM; master data management; metadata management; operational constraints; cloud computing; data exchange; cloud security.
