Hierarchy Management

Hierarchy management is an essential aspect of master data management. The Hierarchy Manager is a specialized interface for jobs dealing with hierarchical master data, such as product hierarchies and categories or organizational structures, and allows users to productively manage complex hierarchies spread over one or more domains. Features include:

  • Efficient creation of hierarchies, including the definition of hierarchy nodes and the relationships
  • The ability to attach domain golden records, or associated data records, to nodes within hierarchies
  • Management of previously-configured hierarchies, such as cloning, merging, absorbing, and updating
  • Tools to define and manage hierarchies
  • An intuitive interface for viewing and managing hierarchies
  • Configuration and storage of node-specific presentation information
