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:
MDC can be used in combination with other Ataccama and third-party tools to administrate and manage any 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 throughout your enterprise (Reference Data Manager). Third-party middleware systems may be used for generic DI, EAI, and BPM tasks.
Customer Data Integration (CDI), Prospect Management, Product Catalogue Consolidation, Product Information Management (PIM).
A user-friendly UI for business users with various intuitive data layouts and visualizations, controlled user input, straightforward approval workflows and issue management.
Consolidation style, Co-existence style, Centralized (System of Record) style, mixture of styles.
High availability, transactional consistency, monitoring, auditing, security, and permissions.
Full Ataccama DQC functionality, including Data Quality Firewall.
Ataccama MDC is configured via a configuration UI in a model-driven process. 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.
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.
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 a set of out-of-the-box online and batch interfaces.
As part of the Ataccama Integrated Platform, MDC can seamlessly integrate with other Ataccama tools. 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.
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.
Gartner positioned Ataccama on the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Master Data Management of Customer Data Solutions in 2015.
