Reference data is a key aspect of any application integration. Today, many enterprises have no centralized enterprise governance and management over reference data. Reference data variations and inconsistencies can be a major source of data quality issues within the enterprise and cause business losses through system downtime, incorrect transactions, and incorrect reports. IBM® InfoSphere® Master Data Management Reference Data Management Hub (InfoSphere RDM Hub) is designed as a ready-to-run application that provides the governance, process, security and audit control for managing reference data as an enterprise standard, resulting in fewer errors, reduced business risk and cost savings.
In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we describe where InfoSphere RDM Hub fits into information management reference architecture. We explain the end-to-end process of an InfoSphere RDM Hub implementation including the considerations of planning a reference data management project, requirements gathering and analysis, model design in detail, and integration considerations and scenario. We then show implementation examples and the on-going administration tasks.
This IBM Redbooks publication can help IT professionals who are interested or have a need to manage reference data efficiently implement an InfoSphere RDM Hub solution with ease.
