Scalable MDM platform empowering business users

Ataccama Master Data Center (MDC) is an advanced, scalable, and highly available platform for consolidating and providing master 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 correct business processes for manual data changes. The workflow also enables data stewards to mark not able records for further review and store them as drafts.
  • Data quality enforcement—Data quality is an important and in separable part of any successful master data management project. All steward inputs are subject to validation by the DQ engine, which acts as a DQ Firewall and prevents the creation of discrepancies and duplicities.
  • Visualizations—Complex lineage, survivor ship, record comparison, and a hierarchy viewer provide all necessary information to support data stewards in day-to-day tasks.
  • Issue management—MDA provides data stewards with a list of tasks and issues related to master records experiencing errors, and suggests solutions, such as matching proposals or correct values.

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 quality monitoring and trend reporting (DQ Dashboard), data quality issue and exception resolution (DQ Issue Tracker), and keeping reference data up-to-date, valid, and available through out your enterprise (Reference Data Manager). Third-party middleware systems may be used for generic DI, EAI, and BPM tasks.

Product features

Model and metadata-driven

Ataccama MDC is configured via a configuration UI in a model-drivenprocess. Data models, either imported or created in MDC, drive the configuration of the entire hub. Models are fully configurable, customizable, and allow for both extensions and upgrades. Templates can be customized, and various languages are supported.

Front-end stewardship

Working with master data is streamlined with our business workflow. Data stewards have the ability to save important or interesting records for further action and easily access drafts.

Short time to deployment

Ataccama MDC is a pre-built framework with no further coding or programming required. After a necessary model-driven configuration, MDC will automatically generate a master data repository and aset of out-of-the-box online and batch interfaces.

Integration, SOA, Messaging

As part of the Ataccama ONE Platform, MDC can seamlessly integrate with other Ataccama ONE modules. Integration with other source and consumer systems via batch interfaces (files, JDBC), online interfaces (HTTP, JMS), and messaging (JMS) is easy to configure. MDC can read and write Hadoop files, and integrate with Stream and REST interfaces.


Ataccama MDC provides rich functionality with a very competitive cost and fast and easy implementation. In addition, by leveraging modern platform and code optimization techniques, this solution requires significantly less powerful hardware than that of our competitors.

From DQ to MDM

MDC supports the transformation from data quality to master data management. Any data quality or data governance solution created using Ataccama tools can be quickly and easily used as the base of your MDM hub.
