Reference Data Management

The Key Segment of Business Process

Reference Data Management

Reference Data Management (RDM) provides the processes and technologies for recognizing, harmonizing, and sharing relatively static data sets for “reference” by multiple constituencies (people, systems, and other master data domains).

Inconsistent or non-existent Reference data management (RDM) can be debilitating for a company because all systems in a company rely on the reference data as a standard. Without it, business intelligence reports can be inaccurate, and systems integrations may fail.

FEATURES

Reference Entity Profile

Helps to create reference data to describe the entities and each attribute in it by using metadata.

Attribute Analysis

This requires metadata of the reference data and generates even more reference metadata of mapping attributes that need to be captured. 

Data Analysis Repository

Data Analysis Repository

This includes facts about the reference dataset or individual codes. This helps users of the reference data to understand how to interpret and use it.

Import Reference Data

The import includes the capability of updating external or internal reference data metadata as per business needs.

Assign Accountabilities

Assign Accountabilities

Assigning the accountabilities for all aspects of reference data management as per the reference dataset, particularly for internal reference datasets, this requires a rich set of reference data metadata elements.

Distribute Reference Data

A variety of distribution mechanisms such as export, connecting to internal Data Quality systems for reference.

APPROACH

01

Establish a Central Reference Data Unit

Establishing a Reference Data Unit will help oversee data management across the organization. It is important to use this for data standardization, data quality, and operational goals to increase efficiency.  

02

Manage External Data

Use the previously established standard practices to discover, profile, and understand reference data. This data should be kept up to date.  

03

Govern Reference Data 

The Reference data should be governed by SMEs as standards are more likely to have been created by them, and the team should be aware of any changes to the reference data. Departments should also be held accountable for their internal reference data.  

04

Collaboration

Since reference could be used throughout the enterprise, it is essential that all applications and all users have current, synchronized data. This will ensure operational efficiency.
