Overview

Top rule

IBM Master Data Management Express is an operational master data management solution, purpose-built for departmental and SMB use, and capable of ingesting data from disparate sources in an intelligent, machine-learning-assisted fashion. Through accurate matching, Master Data Management Express establishes an authoritative single view across the data records from those disparate sources. The solution provides search and view capabilities for the master data records and enables search, view, and maintenance functions for consent management data. Furthermore, the master data can be accessed through a set of REST services or exported in batch mode.

Streamlined master data management functions for insights-driven business decision making

  • Quick setup within hours. The program guides the user quickly through the software download, installation, login, setup of addition users (team members), selection of the desired data model, and company-specific tailoring. Master Data Management Express is designed to be installed, managed, and operated without IT staff and has a small exposed footprint.
  • Streamlined process for adding data. The program guides the user in selecting a data source, extracting the source's metadata, reviewing the mappings proposed by the program's machine learning algorithms, and defining any transformations. The user can initiate the loading of the source and, upon completion of the load, review the matching statistics. If statistics are considered positive, the user accepts and data load is complete; if negative, the user can reject and perform the process again. For subsequent sources, the user performs the same process until all sources are loaded. Sources that have been loaded, but have seen updates over time, can go through the load process again. Any changes are picked up and applied.
  • Improved data mastering. With data loaded and matching applied, users can work with the mastered information. Users can view statistics about the Master Data Management Express repository, through the program's intuitive UI search; view entities; manually link and unlink records to entities; and add and modify consent data.
  • Multiple master data sharing options. In addition to interactive use through the program's UI, the mastered information can be shared in batch mode (export) and in near real time (comprehensive REST APIs). This information can be fed into downstream applications or directly into operational systems and business processes.

By enabling master data management capabilities that are designed to be quick, easy to use, and easy to set up, business users can master data from multiple sources to create a single, trusted view of entities. This can result in better analytic insights, faster time to productive use of the data, and improved customer and entity data.

Product positioning

Top rule

Master Data Management Express is purpose-built for small-to-medium enterprises or departmental deployments in larger organizations, enabling easy and rapid implementation to overcome duplication of key entity information in siloed data sources, and create a single view of customer. Organizations can accomplish this goal in hours or a few days without requiring IT-level resources, and deploy on common Windows™ or Linux® platforms.

Business users can leverage master data through an intuitive UI. Master data can be consumed in batch and real time by business systems and downstream processes.

Organizations that require management of data subject consent information can quickly meet regulatory requirements.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
