DataLens System 5.1 also expands the AutoLearn and Data Governance features first introduced earlier this year. In combination, these capabilities extend the unique capability of the DataLens System to perform in-line data mastering including standardization, enrichment, matching, repurposing and governance of highly variable product, vendor and related data. The DataLens System V5.1 brings unprecedented levels of automation to data mastering – both in the speed and simplicity of deployment, and in the self-tuning and exception management functionality for ongoing use.
Real-time, automated Product Data Mastering is core to product information management (PIM) and master data management (MDM) systems as well as a broad variety of data quality, data integration and data governance situations, from e-commerce to supply-chain synchronization. The ability to automate data mastering processes at an enterprise level typically lowers the time, cost and risk of new systems’ implementation and enhances the interoperability and value of product-centric systems or processes.
“One of the most difficult type of data to master is undoubtedly product data – the items, assemblies, parts and SKUs that are core to many businesses,” said Andrew White, research VP at Gartner, Inc. “Product data is inherently variable, and its lack of structure is generally too much for traditional, pattern-based data quality approaches. Product and item data requires a semantic-based approach that can quickly adapt and ‘learn’ the nuances of each new product category. With this as a foundation, standardization, validation, matching and repurposing are possible. Without it, the task can be overwhelming and is likely to include lots of manual effort, lots of custom code – and a whole lot of frustration.”
Highlights of the DataLens System 5.1 include:
“The DataLens System is unique in its ability to enable real-time data mastering,” said Barbara Mowry, president and CEO of Silver Creek Systems. “This newest release brings unprecedented automation not only to the data mastering process itself, but now also to the associated set-up and ongoing governance and maintenance processes. The ability of the system to build semantic recognition from rules extracted from the data itself takes the technology to the next level in terms of speed of implementation, quality and usability. More and more, we are being contacted by companies that have tried to apply other data quality approaches and have failed because the tools were unsuitable for the job. It is important for enterprises to know there is another – and much better – way!”
The DataLens System 5.1 is immediately available and is priced according to project requirements. For more information contact Silver Creek Systems or visit www.silvercreeksystems.com.
