Launches Profisee MDM Education Series, continuation of Master Data University
ATLANTA, GA—November 25, 2013— Profisee, a master data management and data quality software company, announces the release of Profisee MDM Education Series, an online software training platform that makes the official Microsoft Master Data Services education curriculum available to anyone in the world with a browser and an internet connection. For the full “classroom” experience, course registrants who are running Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Master Data Services (MDS) can deploy the same model packages used in the course materials to follow along with the instructor and perform hands-on exercises.
Profisee MDM Education Series is a continuation of the highly successful Master Data University online training, which was based on SQL Server 2008 R2 Master Data Services. Eric Melcher, Practice Director of Master Data Services for Profisee, explains, “Profisee originally created the MDS training materials for Microsoft, and we have been updating the materials continually since the release of MDS in 2010. Given the great success of Master Data University in 2012 and 2013, it was an easy decision for us to publish the Data Steward and Administrator courses for MDS 2012, this time with MDM consultant Gary Wright, who does a tremendous job as the course instructor.”
Adam Hanson, Profisee co-founder and Vice President, was a major contributor to the original classroom training materials developed for Microsoft. Discussing Profisee’s motivation, investment, and commitment to create, maintain and record the training, Hanson comments, “For five years now, Profisee has been training corporations, government departments, consulting firms, and Microsoft partners on how to architect, build and deploy Microsoft MDS. We knew that the process to convert the classroom materials to a full online curriculum would require a substantial investment in time and energy. However, there was no other feasible way to satisfy continuous requests from around the world for help with MDS. With the just-in-time, self-service model of Profisee MDM Education Series, anyone anywhere can participate in the official MDS training, gain access to a trainer to ask questions, and take the courses as often as they like for six months following registration. It’s a win-win: Microsoft customers gain the training they are requesting, and Profisee gets to continue driving the adoption and success of MDS around the world.”

To celebrate the launch of Profisee MDM Education Series, the first 100 Microsoft corporate or government customers to register will be able to take the courses free of charge (a $1,100 value). All courses are available to registrants for a full six months from registration, and the registrant may take each course module as often as necessary during that time to review and refresh their familiarity with the material.
