IBM® InfoSphere Master Content for InfoSphere Master Data Management Server bridges content from IBM FileNet® Content Manager to master records in IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management (MDM) Server. This release provides the ability to

  • Create and maintain a linkage between enterprise content and an MDM party
  • Batch load existing documents for linkage to MDM party records at the outset of a project
  • Perform search and retrieval: resolve an MDM party ID to its associated documents for application use

For ordering, contact your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: YE001).

Overview
Bottom rule

By leveraging enterprise content for reuse in master records, IBM customers can deliver a single-view of party applications that span all types of information -- data and content. IBM InfoSphere Master Content for InfoSphere Master Data Management Server identifies and synchronizes enterprise content (and its data) with data in the InfoSphere Master Data Management Server. More trusted, complete, and authoritative information about customers and citizens within a single-view application supports better decisions and smarter business outcomes.

Traditionally, organizations that aspire to providing a single view of customer to applications throughout their organization use Master Data Management (MDM) products as a foundation. IBM customers provide trusted information about their own customers through the use of the InfoSphere Master Data Management Server. Implicit in that architecture is a focus on providing a single view of a customer using data-structured information typically stored in relational databases.

Yet it is a frequently cited statistic that 80% of information in an enterprise is unstructured. An enterprise's content (the unstructured information) routinely makes up the vast majority of information in an enterprise. Yet when business applications (like customer relationship management (CRM) systems or a self-service application) require a trusted view of the customer, Master Data Management systems are typically focused on delivering structured data alone. Business applications rely on InfoSphere Master Data Management Server for trusted master records about customers.

IBM InfoSphere Master Content addresses this requirement by linking content from IBM FileNet Content Manager, an enterprise content management (ECM) system. The InfoSphere Master Content offering monitors FileNet Content Manager. If content is added or changed and content meets customer-defined criteria, a linkage is established between a master record in the InfoSphere Master Data Management Server product and the content in FileNet Content Manager. If a corresponding record does not exist in Master Data Management Server, then a new record is created.

The result is that master records in InfoSphere Master Data Management Server can now provide a more complete, comprehensive view of customer entities. The "other" 80% of information, or content, is incorporated into the single view of the information provided by the InfoSphere Master Data Management Server. With InfoSphere Master Content, the master record can now span all types of information -- data and content. The trusted information served up by InfoSphere Master Data Management Server is now enhanced to deliver a more complete portrayal of customer entities, and as such provides a more complete basis for making better decisions and driving better business outcomes.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM InfoSphere Master Content for IBM InfoSphere Master Data Management Server identifies and synchronizes enterprise content (and its data) with data in InfoSphere Master Data Management (MDM) Server. More trusted, complete, and authoritative information about customers and citizens within single-view applications leads to better decisions and smarter business outcomes.

This product delivers the following key pieces of new functionality.

  • Ability to create and maintain a linkage between enterprise content and an MDM party. This key piece of functionality is central to the value of the offering. IBM InfoSphere Master Content for MDM Server monitors FileNet Content Manager. If content is added or changed and that content meets customer-defined criteria, a linkage is established between a master record in the InfoSphere MDM Server product and the content in FileNet Content Manager. If a corresponding record does not exist in MDM Server, then a new record is created.

    The data delivered from IBM FileNet Content Manager is controlled by a mapped configuration.

    Linkages are only supported between FileNet Content Manager and the party-individual domain of InfoSphere MDM Server.

  • Batch loading. In addition to the core, day-forward ability to monitor for new content and new master records, InfoSphere Master Content provides the ability to batch synchronize enterprise content from FileNet Content Manager to InfoSphere MDM Server. This batch synchronization capability is primarily designed for use at the outset of projects, when you want to enhance your Master Data Management information with business-critical content and metadata from your ECM system. InfoSphere Master Content can enhance the MDM repository with information extracted from IBM FileNet Content Manager.
  • Search and retrieval. InfoSphere Master Content provides a search and retrieval library for resolving search queries for content in FileNet Content Manager based on the master record ID. User interfaces requiring access to the master content can incorporate this library for delivering content synchronized to master records with InfoSphere Master Content.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

IBM InfoSphere Master Content for MDM Server hardware requirements.

Disk space: 200 MB

This is in addition to the system requirements for FileNet Content Engine. Additional space might be required for data and related independent software vendor applications.

Memory: FileNet Content Engine requires 2 GB of physical memory per JVM. InfoSphere Master Content (which must be co-located with FileNet Content Engine) does not add additional physical memory requirements to this existing 2 GB per JVM requirement. Memory requirements are highly dependent upon actual transaction workloads and user activity. This estimates is for entry-level deployments.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
