An MDA is an eclectic mix of old and new data, managed on traditional and modern data platforms, whether on premises or in the cloud, with diverse tool types from many providers, stitched together by some form of data architecture. Synonyms include enterprise data architecture, hybrid data ecosystem, distributed data architecture, and data fabric.MDAs are already in production in many multiplatform data warehouse environments and the hybrid data environments of customer relationship management (CRM) and sales force automation (SFA). TDWI has also seen MDAs for analytics programs, the online supply chain, and capturing data from the Internet of Things (IoT) for both operations and analytics.
