    XI and MDM work quite closely. XI acts as a data extractor and source abstractor.

    You can check my webLog:


    and then:


    Please review the first log as I posted. Then again, on a roughly point of view, XI takes data from source (client) systems, puts it in a understandable and standard format for MDM (XML) and allows MDM to import this data. Once data is cleaned and consolidated, XI can be used for harmonization, again, by taking XML files from MDM exports and retrieving this data into its original source.

    This process can be automatized by using MDM Import Server and MDM Syndicator server.

    I hope that helps

      Once u r familiar with all these above mentioned components try extend ur skills in the areas like how MDM get integrates with other Technologies for example SAP NW BI.

      Hope this info helps you.
