Welcome to RDM

Ataccama Reference Data Management is a tool for managing reference data by supporting formal, defined processes and ensuring central authority over all reference data changes. RDM allows not only browsing all reference data, but also changing, creating, and deleting existing data. Its domain-agnostic nature also ensures flexibility to adapt to all types of industries while also being an easy-to-use product for data managers.

RDM is used both as a standalone, fully featured solution for the purpose of managing reference data and in combination with other products for a bigger solution (for example, Ataccama Master Data Management). In addition, RDM can integrate with a number of other systems and applications via standard interfaces in various modes.

The module fulfills the following business roles:

  • Provide means for reference data management operations, including a process of validation.

  • Easily configurable workflow for business approval processes.

  • Synchronization processes across systems, maintaining consistency of the reference data.

  • Browse reference data, through hierarchies, views or entity tables, supported by filtering and other advanced navigation features.

  • Historical traceability and auditing of data over time.

Thanks to this, you can:

  • Manage all reference data across a diverse range of source systems.

  • Provide a central authority for reference data editing (for example creation, modification), supported by configurable workflows for a business approval process.

  • Ensure consistent reference data to consuming systems and synchronization with other different reference data sources.
