Product Master on Cloud Pak for Data

Version: 1.0.4    Premium   IBM


IBM Product Master provides trusted Product Information Management (PIM) and collaborative Master Data Management (MDM) capabilities. It creates an accurate and up-to-date repository of products and service information that can be used throughout an organization for strategic business initiatives.

An architectural diagram depicting the layers of the core components, from bottom to top: data access, collaboration, infrastructure, business object, and api. These interact with the database and document store on the back-end, and on the front lead to the advanced and integration components, which are finally exposed to the application interface.

With the PIM capabilities in Product Master, you can:

  • Aggregate information from any upstream system.
  • Enforce business processes to ensure data accuracy and consistency.
  • Synchronize trusted information with the downstream systems.
  • Use built-in tools for modelling, capturing, creating, and managing information.
  • Set up business user workflows for supporting multi-department and multi-enterprise business processes.
  • Manage unstructured data such as product images, videos, and brochures by using Digital Asset Management capability.
  • Collaborate with Supplier by using Vendor Persona for the native Supplier module.
