Silver Creek Systems
THE LEADER IN PRODUCT DATA MASTERING
Silver Creek Systems is the leading provider of Product Data Mastering tools and technology. While traditional tools founder on the complexity and variability of product data, Silver Creek Systems uses breakthrough semantic technology to allow companies to ‘master’ their product data quickly and more efficiently than ever before - reducing costs and driving efficiencies across the business.
PRODUCT DATA - A KEY PART OF EVERY BUSINESS
Many technology solutions focus on well-structured data, such as customer data, but the larger problem is in the less structured product, parts, vendor and related business data - where there are fewer standards and much more variability.
PRODUCT DATA MASTERING - INITIAL CLEANUP TO ONGOING GOVERNANCE
Data Mastering is all about getting your data ‘right’ and keeping it ‘right’ so that it can be shared, integrated and repurposed across the business. Data Mastering includes elements of Data Quality, Data Integration and Data Governance and is a foundational requirement for any Master Data Management program or related data cleanup, standardization, integration, consolidation or migration initiative.
80/20 MASTER DATA MANAGEMENT - 80% OF THE VALUE AT 20% OF THE COST
Although a full MDM or PIM (Product Information Management) program can be difficult to cost-justify, a Data Mastering approach can provide much of the value at a fraction of the time and cost - and in any case, getting your data right is the first step towards any MDM or PIM program.
HOW WE DO IT - BREAKTHROUGH SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGY
The DataLensTM System uses semantic technology to recognize and transform complex, unstructured and unpredictable data from any source - overcoming the fundamental limitations of traditional data quality and integration approaches.

White Paper: Key Elements of Master Data Management
Master Data Management (MDM) is one of the most rapidly growing areas of enterprise software, yet there are many aspects of MDM that are not well understood. At the core is the misapprehension that MDM is a product that can be bought off the shelf. Rather it is a strategy and a process supported by various pieces of technology. This document introduces a model to clarify the main areas of MDM functionality. It also discusses alternative project and implementation approaches and makes recommendations based on industry best practice.
