DataVera Release 8.18 Now Available from Petris

A brand new module for Master Data Management (MDM) called DataVera Master-Set™ has been introduced as part of DataVera Release 8.18. Developed in collaboration with clients who are using DataVera to implement MDM, this new Master-Set module combines existing features from HealthCheck, Clean and Match modules into a single module with improved functionality.

MasterSet can provide data quality governance across the entire enterprise, helping organizations manage the quality, consistency, usability and availability of data.

            The new module has advanced MDM rules to help users consolidate individual HealthCheck metrics across multiple data stores. In addition, it has more matching algorithms and E&P specific rules. Version 8.18 includes 700+ additional standards reference tables – based on the PPDM 3.8 reference tables – that a company can use to store their naming conventions. This version can also support International geodetic conversions. DataVera has integrated with ESRI’s ArcGIS Engine, which means that users can transform geospatial data into a common datum for geospatial data cleaning and matching.

            A challenge in managing multiple datasets is that the same attributes may follow different naming conventions (USA in one system, United States of America in another). Manage Alias Set allows users to group these inconsistencies and link them to a single standard value (USA = United States of America). With this feature, users can apply the new MasterSet HealthCheck to validate naming conventions across different systems and identify the ones that fall out of this alias set.

            In the past, DataVera could only support column-based units of measure (UOM). The latest version has a new interface and support for row-by-row conversions. When configured to look by row level, DataVera will look at the value and its corresponding UOM and complete the conversion at that row. DataVera comes with its own set of pre-established conversion algorithms, but similar to the rules repository, users are able to add their own UOM algorithms at any time.

            In addition, DataVera can now handle French and Italian datasets with Release 8.18.
