APGAR is a leading Data Advisory consultancy company focused on supporting our clients to make the best usage of their key data. From people awareness and organizational changes to technology enablement & support, we provide tailor-made solutions to support our customers in their data management transformation journey.
Reference data is commonly scattered across domains and often redundant due to lack of coordination and standards at both the business process and technology levels. This results in two main challenges:
- Multiple definitions: Reference Data is scattered across domains lacking governance and ownership
- Multiple sources: Different applications may rely on different versions of code sets to define the same thing. Each version may be true to its own domain but may, or may not, align with others.
APGAR Reference Data Management (RDM) is a turnkey solution for the management of the generic lists of values shared by several business domains. It effectively regroups the organization, maintenance, and governance of all those lists used in a master data management or overall IT landscape.
RDM has a major impact on both the business by dramatically improving data quality for critical reports, and the IT landscape as it results in smoother integration that makes it easier to onboard data from a wide range of data sources
APGAR RDM is built on top of TIBCO EBX®, leveraging the different capabilities of the solution in order to offer a set of features that can be easily configured to adapt to various needs, such as dynamic data models with the possibility to roll out new a value list and extend the data model without development.
- The TIBCO EBX®-based APGAR RDM offers an agile and dynamic data taxonomy while supporting a single view for data analytics and ensuring quality, standardization, and distribution across systems.
- Complexity and cost to maintain can largely be avoided by defining a single source of truth for reference data.
- The solution offers features that can be easily configured to adapt to various needs. It provides flexibility, such as a generic Value List Data Model covering 90% of RDM needs with the possibility to roll out a new value list and extend the data model without development. Additionally, it offers predefined workflows and roles to manage the creation and update of Reference Data Lists and Values.
