Collate Enterprise Data from Contributing Applications
Use Application Adapters
Use either dedicated application adapters for Oracle Cloud applications or a custom application adapter to connect with business applications. Register applications via simple question and answer wizards. Generate metadata to instantiate application-specific perspectives. Import from or export to connected applications.
Import lists or hierarchies from contributing applications. Load dirty data without having to validate on entry.
Validate entire viewpoints at your own pace to improve the quality of data within an application or domain. Generate requests to submit changes and record them for audit purposes.
Use REST API
Utilize available full-featured, granular, RESTful interfaces to automate and integrate this service within the enterprise service-oriented data fabric.
Curate Changes to Enterprise Data Elements
Use requests to create new or change existing enterprise data, relationships, and attributes.
Validate system checks and application-specific validations during request curation.
Model and visualize each request item and associated actions against the target structure(s) to understand change impact and priority.
Submit new items and apply changes to existing ones together via a single atomic request to ensure consistent submission and commitment against target viewpoints.
Conform Changes Across Different Business Perspectives
Run validations in real time during request submission or run validations across entire viewpoints prior to exporting to consuming applications.
Compare alternate hierarchies within an application or business perspectives across applications to understand differences. Rationalize differences using a visual, drag-and-drop interface.
Drag and drop distinct nodes from source to target viewpoints within and across applications to harmonize alternate hierarchies or rationalize specific domains across multiple registered applications. Auto-align associated properties based on configuration. Ensure that descendants of rollup points are harmonized automatically among alternate hierarchies.
Consume Changes Among Downstream Business Applications
Export dimensions and mappings to consuming applications. Integrate with one or more connections for registered applications or download to file for consumption in target applications.
Download any viewpoint to a desktop file for collaboration and sharing purposes or to conduct offline maintenance. Reload via the request experience to perform mass updates.
Use the EPM automate utility to script automated integrations with consuming applications via a full-featured REST API.
Review detailed change histories by browsing audit trails for completed requests.
