Overview

Organizations all over the world are looking for a way to manage reference data. Reference data is recognized to play an important role in data governance initiatives. Whether you refer to it as lookup values, reference code, code tables, or reference hierarchies, reference data is an important part of your business when you need to govern common code types. Without reference data management, you’ll see major issues in the quality of your data impacting reporting, compliance with regulations, transactions, and your ability to successfully master data.  As more and more Master Data Management (MDM) customers utilize reference data, a need emerged to help standardize how organizations utilize this type of data in their data governance and MDM programs.
