Experts in Master Data Management and Data Governance
We help our clients increase revenue, reduce costs, and improve agility & compliance by managing information as a true asset.


MDM Strategy and Development
Hub Designs provided in-depth expertise on customer master data strategy, as well as thought leadership and best practices for MDM and data governance. 

We provided a developer with experience in Oracle Customer Data Hub to design and develop tools for customer data cleanup and migration. And we helped negotiate and implement data enrichment using D&B global information on business customers.
MDM Software Selection
Hub Designs conducted a software evaluation & selection effort, developing a “Request for Information” that went to eight MDM vendors, scoring the vendors’ responses, and then narrowing the selection to three vendors. The finalists conducted a proof of concept using company-provided data, which led to the selection of Informatica as a long term partner.

Financial Services
Information Architecture
This engagement’s scope included developing conceptual, logical and physical components of an Enterprise Data Model (as part of an Informatica MDM hub and data warehouse implementation). 

Hub Designs worked closely with internal and external resources to design the Enterprise Data Model. We also contributed to the company’s evolving MDM strategy and provided information on MDM and data governance best practices.
MDM Software Selection
Hub Designs conducted an evaluation & selection project to choose a Master Data Management (MDM) hub.

We worked with internal personnel to develop functional, technical and general requirements, developed a scoring model based on those requirements, created a vendor “short list”, and conducted scripted demonstrations sessions with a number of MDM vendors.
Development for Oracle E-Business Suite
Hub Designs provided an experienced developer for a long term project based on the customer master component of Oracle E-Business Suite (known as the Trading Community Architecture). 

The engagement consisted of designing, developing, testing and deploying enhanced user interfaces on top of the Oracle foundation, using Oracle’s Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and the Oracle Application Express development environment. 
Customer Data Quality Initiative
Hub Designs provided master data management expertise to help increase the integrity of customer information, and to effectively migrate an acquired company’s data into the company’s Oracle E-Business Suite ERP system. 

We used Trillium’s data quality solution to cleanse and standardize customer addresses, to eliminate or avoid creating duplicate records, and advised on how to set up an effective data stewardship function. 
High Tech
MDM Readiness Assessment and Strategy
Hub Designs conducted educational workshops for business and IT people, and reviewed the company’s readiness for a master data management initiative. 

We created a strategic roadmap that incorporated current approaches (where possible) and brainstormed new approaches where needed. The result was a roadmap that described the optimal master data management strategy for the next several years. 
Data Governance Redesign and Implementation
We developed a strategic roadmap for data governance, and redesigned the client’s data governance organization, moving it to a different part of the company.

We drove the implementation of the new data governance group, using our “Design / Build / Run” approach. Hub Designs filled the Data Governance Office lead position until an internal resource was found to fill that role, and we guided the new leader until that person was up to speed on data governance. 
Information Services
Tech Support for Oracle Customers; White Paper
Hub Designs trained D&B’s internal customer care team on D&B-related functionality in Oracle Customer Data Hub and Oracle E-Business Suite. 

We also provided “front line” remote technical support to D&B’s Oracle customers. 

We also authored a white paper for D&B on “Best Practices for Leveraging D&B in Oracle E-Business Suite”.
Product MDM Strategy; Data Governance Design
Hub Designs drove the creation of a new strategy for product master data management, bringing together information from dozens of product repositories, and guiding the development of a strategic roadmap and business case. 

We also designed the company’s data governance organization, creating business processes for that group to follow, and assisting with the selection of the leader of the new Data Governance Office. 
Business Services
Customer Master Data / Information Governance
Starting with a brief diagnostic workshop, Hub Designs created a “Findings & Recommendations” document, which led to a long relationship.

We helped the company create a data governance function, taught internal resources how to use D&B-related functionality within the Oracle E-Business Suite, and developed standard operating procedure documents for managing customer information to high quality standards. 
Integrate Equifax with Oracle E-Business Suite
Hub Designs designed and developed batch integration of Equifax business information with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1 as part of the company’s Opportunity-to-Collection initiative. This program included a number of enhancements to the company’s management of customer information.  

We leveraged Oracle’s “Third Party Data Integration” capabilities, and created the integration on a “fixed fee” basis to tight timelines, with very high quality levels.
