New Fraunhofer IAO study compares current multidomain master data systems

01.10.2015

Where is the field of master data management currently headed? How can companies find the right products to meet their needs? In a recent market study, Fraunhofer IAO compared the master data management systems of 14 providers, with a primary focus placed on the features of the various systems.

In the digital age, data is becoming available in ever greater volumes, and the complexity of this data is increasing as well. At the same time, the number of processes supported by IT systems within companies and other organizations is also on the rise.

For this reason, it is becoming increasingly important for enterprises to systematically manage their master data. For several years now, established methods and tools for master data management and data quality management have been available on the market for this purpose, thus allowing small and medium-size companies with limited resources to successfully roll out their own implementations.

Viewing master data within the context of business processes

In order for companies to create practical, cost-effective implementations, they must not only choose the right IT solutions but also look at the master data within the context of business processes. This includes processes such as those where master data are used in the rendering of services. It is also important for companies to pay attention to processes that either create new master data or affect existing master data.

New study on master data management provides an overview of the market

In the recent study entitled “Multidomain Master Data Management Systems 2015”, Fraunhofer IAO focuses chiefly on the features of modern master data management systems, classifying these with respect to IT developments and application options. The study is intended as a response to the growing market for, and increasing interest in, master data solutions.

It features a market overview of current multidomain master data systems, with a user-friendly presentation of current systems and their features that makes it easier for potential users to compare available products. In addition to the market overview, the study also covers potential trends in the sector over the next several years with its survey of master data management system developers.

Initial findings of the study presented at SSF 2015

Fraunhofer IAO will present the study’s initial findings at the Stuttgart Software Technology Forum from October 20-22, 2015 in Stuttgart. On the first day of the event, senior researchers at Fraunhofer IAO will provide an overview of several topics in seminars such as “Master Data Management and Information Quality”, “Business Process Management”, and “An Introduction to Document Management Systems”. During the following two days, researchers and field experts will share their experiences on the topics of “Business Process Management”, “Data Quality Management And Data Governance”, as well as “Introduction to Master Data Management Systems”.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
