Oracle Enterprise Data Management

Connect disparate enterprise applications

Easily connect using prepackaged application adapters

Connect both Oracle and non-Oracle business applications using dedicated application or universal adapters. Use simple wizards to register applications and their dimensions.

Import dimensions

Import lists or hierarchies from contributing applications. Save time without having to validate data on entry, even with dirty data.

Validate viewpoints

Improve the quality of data within an application or business domain by validating separate perspectives, called viewpoints.

Load viewpoints

Choose from one or more file formats to load a business perspective.

Automatically share data across viewpoints

Automate the incremental update of downstream viewpoints based on imported data sources using subscriptions.

Synchronize with REST APIs

Synchronize enterprise data by integrating with applications using full-featured, standards-based, RESTful interfaces.

Model changes to enterprise master data elements

Model enterprise data

Model enterprise data—from Oracle and non-Oracle sources—across multiple domains with application awareness.

Author change requests

Create new or change existing enterprise data, relationships, and attributes with requests in an easy-to-understand shopping cart interface. Make changes interactively or load from file.

Validate changes instantaneously

Validate nodes and hierarchies during the request process using configurable system checks and packaged or custom application validations. Set severity to ignore, warm, and critical.

Visualize the impact of proposed changes

Understand the impact of changes before committing by modeling and visualizing each change request and associated actions against the target structure(s).

Submit changes for further review and posting

Model and submit changes, either simple or complex, across one or more application contexts with a single request.

Coauthor changes in real time

Build a shared data foundation

Augment attribution from connected applications, user content, and rule-based content to build new insights in the form of derived properties, conformed dimensions, and alternate hierarchies.

Involve coauthors to enhance collaboration

Invite collaborators as needed to create and enhance a request. Alerts keep everyone in sync by advising coauthors of changes.

Multiple users can coauthor changes in real time

Collaborate concurrently and securely across a group of users on complex structural changes.

Track activity with conversation threads

Use conversation threads to discuss issues, communicate points of view, and share feedback at an item or request level. Use file attachments to justify the request or add supporting details.

Keep participants engaged

Speed up collaboration through the use of user mentions, reminders, and email notifications.

Engage stakeholders with adaptive inference workflows

Permission-based access

Use role-based access control and data permissions to tailor end user browse and edit experiences.

Policy-driven governance

Configure policies to invite or un-invite stakeholders as needed to approve, commit, and notify participants in the desired order of execution.

Adaptive inference workflows

Combine permissions and policies with data context unique to each change request to infer the next workflow step. Invite and un-invite participants as policies are fulfilled.

Multiple approval methods

Enrich or approve requests using static or dynamic methods and introduce approvers conditionally to solve the most complex workflows through pure configuration.

Easily ensure compliance

Assure compliance with the four-eyes principle and the RACI project management matrix in every workflow with a no-code approach.

Rationalize differences across business perspectives

Visualize with side-by-side comparisons

Visually identify differences via side-by-side comparisons of alternate business perspectives of type, list, or hierarchy. Reconcile and resolve missing node, relationship, or property differences.

Use drag and drop to reconcile differences

Harmonize alternate hierarchies and rationalize differences using drag-and-drop changes to viewpoints within and across application contexts. Based on comparison results, automatically build a change request or populate a comparison request.

Save time with subscriptions

Use subscriptions to automatically propagate changes made in one business context to multiple applications downstream. Transform names, property values, and relationships from source to target context.

Distribute changes to consuming users and applications

Search, browse, and query viewpoints

Look up nodes of interest. Browse associated lists and hierarchies. Query viewpoints to identify meaningful subsets and analyze further.

Generate reports and download

Design and consume your own reports or share them with your peers. Download viewpoints for offline sharing and maintenance. Perform mass updates by reloading changes as requests.

Export dimensions

Synchronize dimensions and mappings with consuming applications. Integrate with registered applications using connections or download file(s) from a staging area.

Extract from viewpoints

Retrieve data from a business perspective, tailor its shape, and direct it to a cloud connection or a local file. Zip two or more extracts into a package to combine them or collate your output.

Automate integrations

Save time with our REST API or a command line utility to script automated integrations with consuming applications. Invoke APIs from your favorite integration cloud, data movement utility, or business process orchestration tool.

Audit data and metadata changes

Request history

Audit request details to learn who made what change, when they made it, and in what order and where.

Request lineage

Trace a string of related requests back to the originating change and forward to each direct or indirect subscriber of that change request.

Node history

Browse changes made to a node, including the author, the action taken, the time and date of the change, and the request that drove it.

Transaction history

Audit the details of every change committed for every enterprise data record. Configure access for external auditors with ease.

Metadata audit

Audit logs of system events and configuration changes made to various metadata artifacts, including permissions, policies, subscriptions, and validations.

How Enterprise Data Management (EDM) can reduce finance's reliance on IT

Nick Stankovic, Rahul Kamath, and Charles Homs, Oracle

The global Covid-19 pandemic has significantly changed the world as we knew it. Disruptions in global supply chains, migrations from brick and mortar to online business activities and sales, and the unforeseen great resignation trend has been unprecedented. According to PwC, over 65% of workers are looking for new jobs, and that rate could get higher before things stabilize.
