CDI - Project Research

A great post about CDI project research and what you should ask yourself before diving too deep into the CDI pool covers the following:

What is the "need, pain or problem" that we're trying to solve?
What are our requirements, both from a business as well as a functional perspective?
What data sources have critical customer information in them?
What's the current system of record for customer data?
Who are the current de facto data owners in the company?
What are the ideal matching algorithms for our particular data?
What is the potential impact on existing technology architecture and systems?
How and when will data stewardship be addressed?
