WHAT IS STEP?

STEP is a Multidomain Master Data Management platform that integrates multiple disparate systems in your company by streamlining the process of aggregating and consolidating information around your products, customers, suppliers, employees, assets, location and reference data from multiple sources and formats, connecting that information to derive actionable insights, and publishing that information to backend systems and/or to online and offline channels.

This enterprise capable platform provides a common set of functionality allowing you to work from one, seamless platform which makes your work more predictable, significantly lowering costs and gives you quicker time-to-value when implementing and maintaining a master data project.

 

DATA Quality

  • Provides advanced processes to cleanse and profile data
  • De-duplicate data for volumes of complex data regardless of language, structure, duplication levels, omissions or errors
  • Protect, profile, match, improve, cleanse and stage your data

Information Modeling

  • Quickly configure complex domain data models
  • Normalize data across disparate data models
  • Effortlessly make changes and updates with no programming or downtime
  • Consolidate data from multiple sources and formats
  • Set up metadata on object and reference types, attributes, workflows and more

business process management

  • Configure business processes for content creation, maintenance, approval and publishing
  • Map best practice workflows to roles and privileges
  • Easily integrate into other business systems
  • Separately govern business rules that are shared across different use cases
  • Centralize rule changes to allow rules to be changed once and the effect applied everywhere it is used

DATA Maintenance

  • Acquire, manage and publish information to backend systems and to online and offline channels using a sophisticated set of tools and an intuitive user interface
  • Manage every aspect of each master record, including hierarchy, structure, validations, approvals, versioning and enriching master data with attributes, descriptions, documentation and other related data components
  • Discover, create and manage relationships between master data in each data domain

Matching & Linking

  • Match and link multiple records
  • Identify duplicate objects with out-of-the-box features
  • Compose Golden Records using survivorship rules and message to other enterprise systems

data enrichment

  • Enhance master data records with third party data from sources such as Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), wearable trackers, census data, our existing partners and any of your preferred partners.

PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION

Waiting for queries that search through millions of records or that deal with complex operations isn’t just time consuming, it’s costly. Traditional disk-based databases can’t provide you with the type of results you need. In-memory databases offer much faster performance. By using in-memory technology as part of your MDM system, you can:

  • Perform faster object type, hierarchy and ID searches
  • Accelerate operations on complex data models, including workflow transitions, object approvals and UI displays
  • Quickly complete heavy write operations such as large imports
