Datasheet: The Intelligent Data Hub
Bring together information that lives across applications such that it can be governed, mastered and managed in a centrally understood, non-disruptive way.
An Overview of the Intelligent Data Hub
The concept of an Intelligent Data Hub can be applied to several types of applications to solve critical business challenges to deliver value across the data management chain. At Semarchy, we believe that a data hub should provide the enterprise services to consistently manage the enterprises’ core data about Parties (people, citizens, organizations, customers, suppliers, business partners, legal entities, employees, business units, etc.), Places (locations, addresses, facilities, stores, shops, warehouses, geographies, etc.) and Things (products, items, packages, equities, securities, assets, accounts, hierarchies, devices, etc.).
With the growing interactions and observations collected by enterprises through various data acquisition points, it is becoming critical to collaboratively govern these core data elements in an agile and measurable environment. Setting up this collaborative governance within an Intelligent Data Hub drives accurate interpretation of all the relationships between these core data elements.
With the Intelligent Data Hub, operational analytics, predictive analytics, and traditional analytics share the same master data, reference data, business glossary and data catalogs to transform the interactions and observations into measurable business value.
Similarly, operational business applications leverage the Intelligent Data Hub in their core processes to guarantee semantic consistency across the enterprise, thus reducing costs and risks and increasing revenue opportunities.
Semarchy clients benefit from our platform to design and deploy critical applications orchestrating business processes across multiple lines of businesses, all sharing a single consistent and governed data hub.
