Scalable MDM platform empowering business users

Ataccama Master Data Center (MDC) is an advanced, scalable, and highly available platform for consolidating and providing master & Reference data management tasks. It is a model and metadata-driven data processing system that enhances and complements Ataccama’s data quality engine.

In addition to the MDC back-end engine, Ataccama Master Data Admin (MDA) allows users to perform all of the critical Data Stewardship tasks—not only to browse, modify, search, and create master data through a web interface, but also to browse and manage graphical hierarchies.

Master Data Admin is designed specifically with data stewards in mind. Key features include:

  • Approval workflow—Multi-step approval workflow ensures correctbusiness processesfor manual datachanges. The workflow also enables data stewards to mark notable records for further review andstore them as drafts.
  • Data quality enforcement—Data quality is an important andinseparable part of anysuccessful masterdata management project. All steward inputs are subject to validation by the DQ engine, whichactsas a DQ Firewall and prevents the creation of discrepancies and duplicities.
  • Visualizations—Complex lineage, survivorship, record comparison,and a hierarchyviewer provide allnecessary information to support data stewards in day-to-day tasks.
  • Issue management—MDA provides data stewards with a list of tasksand issues relatedto masterrecords experiencing errors, and suggests solutions, such as matching proposals or correctvalues.

MDC can be used in combination with other Ataccama and third-party tools to administrate and manageany tasks related to data stored in an MDC repository—including a front end for data qualitymonitoring and trend reporting (DQ Dashboard), data quality issue and exception resolution (DQ IssueTracker), and keeping reference data up-to-date, valid, and available throughout your enterprise(Reference Data Manager). Third-party middleware systems may be used for generic DI, EAI, and BPMtasks.
