Master data management for Oracle EBusiness Suite and SFDC

Triniti Master Data Management Overview

Leading edge components that bring data quality to the fore

Our story started in 1995 when we were tasked with implementing Oracle ERP at Lucent Microelectronics ( AT&T Microelectronics then) in Allentown, PA. We were required to integrate all their internal factories, foundries and Sub Contractors into a single instance to be the single source of truth for the entire company.

While Oracle has the deep capability for business processes and inter department integration, it is easily susceptible to bad data. That would destroy the objective of the entire ERP implementation. Good data is at the heart of timely, reliable, accurate, and complete information and is the bedrock of data-oriented decision making. Good Master data, is a prerequisite for good data. To generate good master data, the following attributes are mandatory.

  1. Easy User Interface
  2. Real time error checking to enforce policies and constraints
  3. Approvals to ensure stakeholders signoff
  4. No Latency between the time the data is created and its consumption in downstream transactions
  5. No gaps between data in the ERP and data in the MDM.

To meet these objectives, we built a custom solution for them and it was for the product domain. Subsequently, when we implemented the same ERP for Sony Semiconductor in Japan, we decided to build a framework that could handle multiple business entities such as Product, Customer, Supplier, GL account, Cost Center, Location, People etc.,

Since Sony Semiconductor went live in 2003, many other customers have used Triniti’s MDM to create and maintain high quality master data. They include Qualcomm, Power Integrations, DSPG and Peregrine Semiconductor.

With Triniti’s MDM you can achieve the benefits of zero latency enterprise to make faster, and reliable decision making. Armed with error-free transactions in your ERP,CRM, etc, you will be able to avoid pitfalls of not meeting program expectations.

By using Triniti’s MDM you can achieve the following functionality:

  • Model your master data
  • Model complex hierarchies that represent your master data
  • Set policies and constraints
  • Validate foreign keys with member applications directly without replicating in the MDM
  • Do data quality checks
  • Integrate with member applications in real time using industry standard protocols
  • Enforce authorship
  • Execute survivorship in member applications
  • Define required workflows and approvals
  • Get data quality metrics
  • Configure 360-degree views of your domains

Triniti MDM provides out-of-the-box support for Oracle E-Business suite and SFDC for Product, Customer, Supplier, and GL Chart of accounts structure including GL Account and Cost Center. Check back! We will update our content as we release more domains. To make your job easier, we also provide the following tools:

  1. An ROI Calculator.
  2. A Vendor evaluation form.

Triniti Product Information Management (PIM)

Triniti's Master Data Management software for product data in Oracle Ebusiness suite allows users to build the entire supply chain bill, including Items from a single user interface. In repeated observation, we have seen it improve productivity by 6 times and reduce errors 100% compared to maintaining all product related information in Oracle directly or the Oracle MDM. You can create Bills of material, alternate bills, substitutes, co-products in multiple organizations without having to go to multiple screens. T-P-M supports all types of sourcing that are natively supported in Oracle EBusiness suite. Unlike other MDM’s, with T-P-M you can also maintain all other entities including Items, item attributes, item categories, routings, all descriptive flexfields on the same screen.

T-P-M leverages Triniti’s industry leading application data framework to create reusable supply chain templates to simplify metadata management. Play the video to know about Triniti Product Modeler.

Easier, Better, Faster, Cheaper.

Gain 80% productivity improvements and 100%  accuracy using the Triniti Product Modeler (TPM).

As an Oracle ERP user, you labor through multiple screens to create a basic supply chain. After all that laboring, your confidence of data accuracy is still low.

As a result, you may experience some of the following symptoms of poor data quality:

  • Inaccurate Oracle ASCP Plans

  • Untrustworthy Business Intelligence (BI) reports

  • Operation reports massaged manually in Excel

  • Items shipped to the wrong destinations

  • Customer invoices with errors

  • Excessive credit and debit memos

  • Large manual Journal entries in General Ledger

  • Inability to automatically perform 3-way match for supplier invoice payments

Most likely, you use Alerts and reports to validate accuracy and completeness of data.  You are probably used to this daily routine and assume it is part of using Oracle.  It does not have to be. They lead to inefficiency and constant firefighting. This is costing you time and money daily and you probably do not even know it.

Solution

You can use TPM, a tool designed and validated by end-users. Thanks to TPM, they spend more time on operations than worrying about data.  With it you can create the complete supply chain data in one screen including:

  • Multi-org Item (attributes, descriptive flexfields, categories and catalogs)

  • BOM (Bill of materials) 

  • SR (sourcing rules including assignment sets)

  • Set default values for some attributes to eliminate user errors 

  • Routings, Resources, and all the associated attributes

  • Have the right users create the data by using workflow

TPM can be configured to your specific industry.

Next Generation MDM
Next Generation CDM

Easier, Better, Faster, Cheaper.

Achieve 75% productivity improvements and 100%  accuracy using the Customer Data Management (CDM).

As an Oracle ERP user, you labor through multiple screens to create Party, Customer Accounts, Customer Sites, Contacts. After all that laboring, your confidence of data accuracy is still low.

The Oracle Trading Community Architecture (TCA), is a very powerful data model to describe a customer.  However, the user interface is very complicated.  It also lacks governance.

Many Oracle EBusiness suite customers also use SalesForce.com (SFDC) to manage their sales funnel, requiring at least two systems to have a record of a customer account.  

You may not have integrated them to have a single source of truth.

As a result, you may experience some of the following symptoms of poor data quality:

  • Inaccurate transactional performance
  • Lost Revenue
  • Error data
  • Inconsistent data across shared systems
  • Increased operating costs
  • Poor Customer Service
  • Upset customers getting redundant messages or solicitation offers from multiple channels.
