The IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management (MDM) Server 9 provides a solution for managing enterprise data.
The framework provides a comprehensive data model and associated business services that can be extended to create a customized solution tailored to your business.
This article provides guidance on how these extensions are developed using the MDM Workbench supplied with the MDM Server product. The following topics are discussed with the use of examples to help you get started:
- Setting up your development environment
- Adding new entities to the data model
- Customizing entities within the data model
- The use of code control systems to manage generated artifacts
- Methods for testing
The majority of this whitepaper is also applicable to the IBM InfoSphere Master Information Hub (MIH). The MIH workbench provides similar capabilities to the MDM Workbench, allowing the user to add new entities to the application.
The white paper has now been submitted for publication as a developerWorks article and we are making it available early here for the MDM Workbench community.
