Alterra Master Data Management (MDM)

Managing master data in a networked and heterogeneous system landscape centrally and keeping them consistent is a challenge for many companies.

There are different factors that affect the consistency of master data:

  • Factors that interfere with the consistency your Master Data
  • Increasing distribution of data across different systems.
  • Global use of master data.
  • Use of the same data set in a variety of contexts. 

Approaches to system integration such as EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) can solve only part of the problems inherent to distributed data. These solutions require master data that are often simply not available. 

However, without master data that are conclusive in themselves, the complexity of business information processes can not be reduced.  Insufficient master data management in the medium term results in poorer data quality, an increased effort in data management and distribution, and in many cases even in impaired competitiveness.
