Choosing your MDM software
In this digital transformation age, all businesses, regardless of size and their trade sector, should pay close attention to the quality, validity and traceability of their data, just as they do to the business processes related to that data. This is the benefit of Blueway’s integrated platform, which combines MDM (Master Data Management) with a BPM (Business Process Management) component.
Master data management (MDM) projects meet these particular requirements, dictated by internal or external demand, which can be placed into two main categories:
- Improved data quality, through a single master data repository for the entire business
- Traceability of changes to data, and the ability to reconstitute your master data on any date.
The Data Governance module and the Blueway platform provide a toolkit for this approach, support it, and make it agile and easier to implement. Our approach is intended to be straightforward and pragmatic, for quick instantiation. Your functional rules can be applied to any data storage medium: you determine the attributes and targets to associate with each data item to check, confirm, transform and ensure the traceability of all data.

02 METHODS AND SOLUTIONS
The architecture around the single master database for MDM
Access to the master data repository is simplified by automatic Web service generation, which ensures data is distributed and used properly, following the standard modes of create, update and delete.
Your architecture, built on a single master data repository, consequently shifts to a service-oriented architecture model (SOA) while adhering to data access security rules.
You check your data against functional rules (field composition, length, optional/mandatory, validation checks for bank details or trade sector codes, existence in a table of permitted values, etc.) and any data updates are traced and archived in the master data repository using this Master Data Management approach.
Using Blueway platform functionalities, you ratify the selected model, control data traffic flows and build an up-to-date master data repository. You can also produce screens that present data giving access to the single master data repository, by means of user-friendly interfaces that can be accessed from any type of device (PC, mobile, etc.). Statistics can also be generated.
