Preparing Your Data for Hierarchy Manager

Preparing Your Data for Hierarchy Manager

To make the best use of HM, you should analyze your information and make sure you have done the following:
  • Verified that your data sources are valid and trustworthy.
  • Created valid schema to work with Informatica MDM Hub and the HM.
  • Created hierarchial, foreign key, and one-hop and multi-hop relationships (direct and indirect relationships) between your entities:
    All child entities must have a valid parent entity related to them.
    Your data cannot have any ‘orphan’ child entities when it enters HM.
    All hierarchies must be validated.
    For more information on one-hop and multi-hop relationships, see the
    Multidomain MDM Data Steward Guide
  • Derived HM types.
  • Consolidated duplicate entities from multiple source systems.
    For example, a group of entities (Source A) might be the same as another group of entities (Source B), but the two groups of entities might have different group names. Once the entities are identified as being identical, the two groups can be consolidated.
  • Grouped your entities into logical categories, such as physician’s names into the “Physician” category.
  • Made sure that your data complies with the rules for referential integrity, invalid data, and data volatility.
    For more information on these database concepts, see a database reference text.
