Master Data Management & Master Data Governance
MDM and BPM initiatives should go hand in hand, and together they can help organizations achieve business goals more efficiently and effectively – MDM needs organizational collaboration, as well as integrated process-oriented capabilities to break down information transaction silos and delay; contrarily, BPM projects cannot succeed in optimizing workflow or improving operational efficiency without accurate, complete and timely data flows.
As a centralized repository, Enterprise Process Center ® (EPC) offers a highly collaborative and interactive manner for MDM and BPM to work together throughout the whole master data lifecycle – by binding Master Data structure to human tasks, the EPC captures all critical data from every business process and activity, and creates a robust master data asset for your organization. Interfacing’s MDM solutions go beyond data quality and data governance, and offer the possibility to establish a joint value proposition with BPM and maximize the value of your existing resources. Let us leverage the power of your Master Data and guide your organization towards success!
Enterprise Process Center® recognized by Gartner® as a global leader in Business Operation System, Operational Intelligence & Enterprise Business Process Analysis (EBPA) including Enterprise Architecture, Business Process Analysis, Strategy-to-Execution & Workflow Automation.
Master Data Governance
App Web Editing
Users have the full editing capabilities for all objects directly within the Master Data Module on the Web App. This list includes Master Data Sets, Master Data Folders, Entities and Attributes.
Master Reference Source & Data Integration:
With a single repository that includes all the established and on-going processes throughout the whole organization, the EPC truly breaks down information silos among personnel and departments with one centralized Master Data file, creating a common point of reference (Master Reference) to integrate all data into your data hub for the entire organization.
Complete Data Lifecycle Management:
By reducing data errors and redundancies, the EPC focuses on every areas of your data governance, from availability, consistency, integrity to security. Interfacing’s MDM solutions will support your business with accurate, high quality and up-to-date data throughout the complete data lifecycle.
Ownership & Accountability Assignment:
Under the structured hierarchical frameworks within the repository, accountabilities are assigned consistently at all levels. With specific CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) paradigm for your MDM, our system can prevent duplicate data creation or data modifications. Accountability is set not just in data governance, but also in data creation and consumption phases.
Master Data Migration
Database Entity Schema& Relationship Diagram:
Master Data is defined by a set of entities and attributes, which can be imported and displayed from tables and columns, as well as processed and analyzed under different views of the EPC, whether in granular database entity schema or in dynamic relationship diagram. By visualizing your database, you can relate accurate data to any business processes or activities in a more productive and efficient method.
Time, Costs & Risk Reductions
The EPC uses simplified ETL process to reduce your costs for data cleansing, reparation, transformation and integration into the master file. Time and risks related to a specific task or procedure can also be minimized since redundant, overlapping, and even conflicting sources of information is eliminated. Once data meets the quality thresholds, the EPC will help you maintain a high quality master reference and give you peace of mind.
Simplified Data & Knowledge Sharing:
Web-based yet highly mobile responsible, the EPC allows you to access and process data via multiple system architectures and platforms, including tablet and mobile phone. This convenience allows cross-departmental employees to stay informed on the latest data wherever they are and whenever they want.
Besides, through the cloud-based database import script, users can easily import database in standard CSV format to build ongoing, standardized data seamlessly in one single repository. The cross-functional data sharing capabilities of the EPC will greatly break down your operational complexity and promote best business practices among individuals and units.
Alignment between Actions and Objectives
Processes & Flow Shapes:
After creating data, users can assign entities and attributes to processes and flow objects to help map data flow, information transfer, etc. following the CRUD methodology. Hence, we help you align your data to everyday tasks, processes, activities and objectives performed by distinct parties within your organization.
After documenting and aligning your data structure to your activities, the EPC facilitates more productive and efficient process execution through a bird’s-eye view. Following the hierarchical and granular data structure, procedures related to a specific process or task can be directly monitored, linked to your strategy, as well as evaluated under various performance matrixes.
One Discipline for Multiple Specialized Improvement:
The EPC leverages the same data for different business processes and purposes. That being said, different users from different units can use one single trusted version of data. In return, data homogeneity will encourage best practices and continuous improvement, which will ultimately increase your bottom line.
By linking master database to processes, the EPC combines tangible targets with recurring processes review – users can see exactly how a change on one item would affect the other parts of the overall architecture. They can also generate analysis-based reports to assess process development, set milestones, track improvements. A strengthen data-process relationship will help you avoid zero-sum decision-making, and better prepare yourself for ongoing organizational wide change management.
Simplified Change Maintenance:
The EPC minimizes the effort required to maintain the ongoing updates within the repository, as most of the work is automated and pre-defined by standardized schemas. The EPC also feeds your processes with aggregated and consolidated data for on-going maintenance and continuous improvement. Once data meets the quality thresholds, the EPC will help you maintain a high quality master reference and give you peace of mind.
Culture of Data:
The EPC will help cultivate a culture of data to acknowledge and share benefits across various individuals and units. The MDM framework also fosters cross-organizational commitment towards a shared mission, vision, or goals and objectives. The MDM will increase user adoption rates, stimulate critical thinking and transparent communication within the organization.
