The My Council Services MDM platform comes with a number of characteristics that truly make it enterprise strength as MDM platform:
Configuration and customisation options
The My Council Services platform has been designed for rapid configuration and customisation, with broad extensibility in mind.
The application suite is defined using configuration, and the resulting metadata is stored in a central repository. This metadata includes the business model, allowing entities to be extended, and new objects and entities to be created and linked to those objects already in existence. A major advantage of this approach is that application upgrades are simpler to undertake and to deploy.
Modularity and flexibility
MDM implementations range from lightweight registries to robust, persistent masters able to manage and store not only the core customer profile but also to provide a centralised single view of child entities associated with the customer.
My Council Services MDM is designed in a modular fashion allowing the organisation the flexibility to deploy anywhere from a lightweight registry to a robust persistent hub with associated child entities.
The architecture and platform have been designed to be object based, service-oriented and metadata driven. Building on this architectural platform, My Council Services MDM provides a rich set of prebuilt MDM services, together with a set of adapters to support the most common integration technologies.
Organisations have varying requirements when it comes to choosing how to deploy an MDM solution. Many organisations will deploy a stand-alone MDM Hub that is integrated to all other applications. My Council Services MDM supports this “stand alone” deployment mode.
Generic master data management and mapping utility
This tool allows business users to define grid web based eForms to allow data mappings. The utility can be configured and used without the need for specialist technical resource. The platform allows the following cardinality when mapping data.
- Or many-to-many
Your organisation’s mapping data can be made available via web services for real time consumption or in CSV/delimited format for consumption in batch mode. Furthermore this utility allows businesses to create various other master data sets, such as list of values and data hierarchy.
The data hierarchy can be used by the enterprise business intelligence reporting layer of the business for reporting needs.
The data sets created and managed by the business users are presented via web services and cloud hosted ETL to the business.
