MDM Project Highlights:
Under the current model and architecture, ABB runs various web applications and have multiple systems which produce, modify and consume the Product Master data. These systems were developed over time to address the needs of specific business units and product lines. Some product lines were enhanced by ABB and have their own applications and data repositories. This makes consolidated reporting, business monitoring, financial consolidation, and the development of new applications difficult, costly, and time consuming. Also some of the systems are not futuristic and have limitations to add new products and attributes, as needed by business.
At the same time, ABB is increasingly developing business strategies and objectives that require an enterprise view and management of Master Data. In order to more fully support its vision and business strategy, ABB has decided to create Master Data Management Solution. This platform will be the go-forward Source and single-version-of-truth of master data for business information delivery and will enable business units and stakeholders to access, retrieve, and share accurate and timely information. It will enable the centralization of information for analysis and reporting of Master Data.
