In many organizations, the search for a “single version of the truth” in one data set results in a multitude of truths in other data sets. Ataccama’s Reference Data Manager (RDM) enables you to maintain a consistent representation of reference data across all departments and databases in your organization.

This user friendly web-based application provides the flexibility and workflow functionality needed to create a company-wide reference data environment that is not only secure and powerful, but easy to use as well.

RDM allows collaboration between IT and business users to manage all of an organization’s important internal data in one centralized place and to facilitate the distribution of changes in data to all systems requiring notification, on customized terms and schedules.

And, of course, RDM is part of our proven family of products, forming the basis of a complete data quality, data governance or master data management solution.

User-friendly interface for reference data entry and review

RDM’s thoughtfully designed web-based interface neatly presents the information users need to easily define and manage important data critical to any organization.

Customizable approval workflow for confirmation of entered data

Multi-level workflow capabilities enforce permissions, facilitates data export and synchronization, and keeps track of history, changes and user activities in support of Data Governance initiatives.

Secure multi-user environment
