problematic

Management of the Acolyance group's master data which was managed in a decentralized way

With a history of heavy data that was difficult to recover and complex in terms of its nature and structure

Solution

In order to answer the problem of our client Acolyance, we implemented a multi-domain repository strategy based on the Orchestra Networks EBX5 solution. The 1st batch of the project was the Third Party Repository: it aims to organize the management of the reference data of all third parties and covers the management of data of the following types:

  • Farmers
  • Customers
  • Suppliers
  • Physical persons

The 2nd batch was the article repository, which deals with Acolyance articles and covers the following aspects:

  • Hierarchy / Nomenclature of articles
  • Packaging and codification management
  • Danger regulations and characteristics
  • Technical characteristics
  • Management of batches of articles

Our mission To best support Acolyance, we did the following:

  • We devised the framework of business needs on the Third Party & Article repositories
  • We produced a solution specification and implementation
  • We defined the data recovery strategy
  • We supported Acolyance in the implementation of the integration architecture in the IS
