Make data-driven decisions with confidence

You’re aware of the trend: Big data is driving efficiency and innovation in every industry. You want to capitalize on the opportunity—but simply amassing quantities of data does not ensure you’ll get the insights to support a business strategy.

Your internal systems may implement incomplete or conflicting rules, or human input errors may invalidate data in ways that are difficult to find. According to Experian, inaccurate data affects the bottom line of 88 percent of organizations and impacts up to 12 percent of revenues. Trying to cleanse, process, and restructure data is an even bigger suck on resources.

Infor Master Data Management (MDM)—powered by Ataccama—is an end-to-end suite that provides complete coverage for all your data quality needs—it can correct data, using your own business rules, and create one perfect record. With Infor MDM, you’ll have the visibility to drive better decisions, quickly.

Unique capabilities

Infor’s application integration architecture eliminates the need for the most time-consuming and expensive part of an MDM project: the design, build, and maintenance of the master data management model. Additionally, several unique industry advantages reduce the time to value for the implementation of your Infor MDM solution.

MDM_Capabilities_Multi-domain_65x65

Multi-domain support

Support any topology for data mastering—all Infor MDM components can work with data from virtually any data sources, including RDBMs, CSV, TXT, XLS, XLSX, Web Services, XML, and of course Infor open standard OAGIS.org BODs (business object documents). Infor MDM acts as a service on Infor ION®, a JMS or RDBMS-based business architected middleware.

MDM_Capabilities_Unified_65x65

Unified architecture

Infor MDM provides complete coverage for the five widely accepted needs of data quality assurance: profiling, cleansing, mastering, governance, and reference data management—all from within a single software architecture.

MDM_Capabilities_Real-time_65x65

Real-time processing

Offering proven real-time data quality or mastering capabilities of up to millions of records per hour, Infor MDM provides the oversight for you to fix quality issues right at the input screen—before they become a more expensive issue. With more control over their data, decision makers also gain a better understanding of how it’s collected.

With client data consolidation and unification, we gained a single client view and are able to ascertain who our client is, what products they have, and what we can offer them.
