Oracle Enterprise Data Management

Connect disparate enterprise applications

Connect easily using application adapters

Connect both Oracle and non-Oracle business applications using dedicated application or universal adapters. Use simple wizards to bring in applications.

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.

Synchronize with REST APIs

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

Manage changes to enterprise master data elements

Streamline requests

Create new or change existing enterprise data, relationships, and attributes with requests in an easy-to-understand shopping cart interface.

Validate data immediately

Validate nodes and hierarchies during the request process using configurable system checks and packaged or custom application validations.

Visualize the impact of changes

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

Simplify submissions

Ensure consistent submissions and commitment against target viewpoints with a single request for submitting new items and changes to existing ones.

Collaborate and coauthor in real time

Involve coauthors

Enhance a request by inviting collaborators as needed. Alerts keep everyone in sync by advising coauthors of changes.

Track activity with conversation threads

Collaborate using conversation threads to discuss issues, communicate points of view, and share feedback, either at an item or request level.

Tag participants

Speed up collaboration and get a collaborator’s attention as needed by using @ references to tag participants and issue real-time email notifications.

Grant granular permissions for data access

Maintain security with granular, permission-based access to applications, dimensions, and related data objects.

Streamline with automated workflow

Invite the right stakeholders to participate at the right time by leveraging an intelligent engine that combines knowledge of the request content, user permissions, authorized approvers, and request stage.

Rationalize differences across business perspectives

Visualize with side-by-side comparisons

Visually compare alternate business perspectives, lists, or hierarchies, in a side-by-side layout. Understand issues such as missing nodes and relationships or property differences by comparing alternate hierarchies.

Use drag and drop to make changes

Harmonize alternate hierarchies and rationalize differences using drag-and-drop changes to viewpoints within and across applications. Build a change request or populate a comparison request automatically based on comparison results.

Save time with subscriptions

Use subscriptions to copy changes made in one business context automatically to a downstream application. Save time with auto-submit changes that don’t require human intervention.

Distribute changes to downstream applications

Export dimensions

Provide dimensions and mappings to consuming applications. Integrate with one or more connections for registered applications or download to a file for consumption in target applications.

Download viewpoints

Collaborate, share, or conduct offline maintenance by downloading any viewpoint to a desktop file. Perform mass updates by reloading.

Automate integrations

Save time with full-featured REST API or the Oracle Cloud EPM Automate utility to script automated integrations with consuming applications.

Provide an audit trail

Provide transparency with the ability to browse, filter, and download detailed change histories for completed requests. Easily configure access for external auditors.

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.
