Overview

Omni-Gen facilitates efficient data integration and mastering by tapping into businesspeople’s knowledge of domains such as customer, location, and supplier. An agile process continually refines the master record definitions they need, while users apply source mappings and rules for data quality, match/merge, and remediation. This process improves collaboration between businesspeople and developers, eliminating typical spreadsheet-based interactions during the design of models and cleansing rules.

Master Data Services (MDS) is the SQL Server solution for master data management. Master data management (MDM) describes the efforts made by an organization to discover and define non-transactional lists of data, with the goal of compiling maintainable master lists. An MDM project generally includes an evaluation and restructuring of internal business processes along with the implementation of MDM technology. The result of a successful MDM solution is reliable, centralized data that can be analyzed, resulting in better business decisions.
