Techopedia Explains Enterprise Data Management

The main purpose of EDM is the removal of organizational issues and conflicts resulting from the mismanagement of information and data, by implementing a structured data delivery strategy – from data producer to data consumer.

EDM is comprised of software applications, computing and network infrastructure, business logic and policies used to manage enterprise data flow. A organization implements EDM through a variety of processes and requires collaboration through different departments, such as IT, finance and operations.
