Thank you for Joining us at Gartner Enterprise Information and Master Data Summit

Thank you for stopping by our Oracle Booth at Gartner and attending our session on Feet on the Ground, Head in the Cloud! We hope your time with Gartner and your fellow attendees was productive, fun and above all inspiring for the year to come.

Recognized as a leader in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for MDM solutions, Oracle’s strategy is to make the full spectrum of deployment options available to our customers.  With a mixture of on-premise and cloud-based applications integrated together to deliver best-in-class customer experience, we have wrestled with these problems and created solutions that can be implemented today.   The decisions you make on how to design and deploy MDM will have a magnified impact as the data explosion continues to unfold.


Oracle MDM solutions are built on the same application engines that drive our enterprise software, with thousands of customers in deployment managing billions of records. We have out-of-the-box integrations to a number of Customer Experience applications, industry standard data feeds and even third party applications and data sources. Our MDM applications are specifically engineered to be part of a heterogeneous application and technology ecosystem. Our EDQ and MDM applications are specifically engineered to be part of a heterogeneous application and technology ecosystem. That’s critically important as the MDM footprint gets extended, and your need to operate across these different environments expands.


It’s an exciting time to be in the enterprise data management space. We would welcome the chance to discuss what we’re doing in more detail, and to share our experience and our recommendations for solving your most pressing data problems.

Enterprise Best Practices for Complex Multi-Chart/Multi-Ledger Organizations

Like many industry leaders, organizations do a good job closing their books and managing change in their structures. Unfortunately, many of the processes put in place are manual and require many hours or planning, spreadsheet update and rework to address inconsistencies and additional change while the manual processes are being executed.

Diverse organizations, planning for record growth in 2014 and support many different general ledgers and/or multiple charts of accounts, have a complex challenge managing corporate reporting hierarchies and financial consolidation mappings. In this session you will learn how to:
  • Automate key manual processes to drive growth
  • Handle hierarchical change and re-organizations
  • Understand Data Governance concerns and strategies

Join Oracle, AdvancedEPM and General Dynamics for this informative webcast as we discuss key issues around how to automate change in your business. General Dynamics achievements included:
  • Reduced Planning Cycles by 30%
  • Reduced Re-Organizations, and What-If Modeling by 25%
  • Delegated maintenance responsibility to business experts most familiar with change events
  • Consolidated & rationalized corporate and divisional hierarchies across many different sources
  • Pushed hierarchies and other reference data (in multiple formats) to many downstream apps
  • Standardized hierarchies, business rules, and data validations
  • Provided better analysis tools to support Re-Orgs, M&A activity, etc.

Reduce ERP Consolidation Risks with Oracle Master Data Management

Reducing the Risk of ERP Consolidation starts first and foremost with your Data.This is nothing new; companies with multiple misaligned ERP systems are often putting inordinate risk on their business. It can translate to too much inventory, long lead times, and shipping issues from poorly organized and specified goods. And don’t forget the finance side! When goods are shipped and promises are kept/not kept there’s the issue of accounts. No single chart of counts translates to no accountability.

So – I’ve decided. I need to consolidate!

Well, you can’t consolidate ERP applications [for that matter any of your applications] without first considering your data. This means looking at how your data is being integrated by these ERP systems, how it is being synchronized, what information is being shared, or not being shared. Most importantly, making sure that the data is mastered. What is the best way to do this? In the recent webcast: Reduce ERP consolidation Risks with Oracle Master Data Management we outlined 3 key guidelines:

#1: Consolidate your Product Data

#2: Consolidate your Customer, Supplier (Party Data)

#3: Consolidate your Financial Data

Together these help customers achieve reduced risk, better customer intimacy, reducing inventory levels, elimination of product variations, and finally a single master chart of accounts. In the case of Oracle's customer Zebra Technologies, they were able to consolidate over 140 applications by mastering their data. Ultimately this gave them 60% cost savings for the year on IT spend.

Oracle’s Solution for ERP Consolidation: Master Data Management

Oracle's enterprise master data management (MDM) can play a big role in ERP consolidation. It includes a set of products that consolidates and maintains complete, accurate, and authoritative master data across the enterprise and distributes this master information to all operational and analytical applications as a shared service.

It’s optimized to work with any application source (not just Oracle’s) and can integrate using technology from Oracle Fusion Middleware (i.e. GoldenGate for data synchronization and real-time replication or ODI with its E-LT optimized bulk data and transformation capability). In addition especially for ERP consolidation use cases it’s important to leverage the AIA and SOA capabilities as part of Fusion Middleware to connect these multiple applications together and relay the data into the correct hub.

Oracle’s MDM strategy is a unique offering in the industry, one that has common elements across the top and bottom in Middleware, BI/DW, Engineered systems combined with Enterprise Data Quality to enable comprehensive Data Governance at all levels. In addition, Oracle MDM provides the best-in-class capabilities to master all variations of data, including customer, supplier, product, financial data. But ultimately at the center of Oracle MDM is your data, making it more trusted, making it secure and accessible as part of a role-based approach, and getting it to make sense to you in any situation, whether it’s a specific ERP process like we talked about or something that is custom to your organization.

To learn more about these techniques in ERP consolidation watch our webcast or goto our Oracle MDM website at www.oracle.com/goto/mdm
