A DRM Journey: A N00b's Perspective
Kris Calabro , JCI
Co-presenter(s): Natalie Delemar, Ernst & Young
Topic: EPM Data Integration - Subtopic: Metadata management/integration

Not all that long ago, DRM was a mystery: No one really could agree on what the acronym DRM spelled out – was it Data Relationship Management or maybe Dimension Relational Manager or maybe something else – or understand how the tool worked or even appreciate DRM's role in the EPM ecosystem. Today we know what DRM means (Data Relationship Management); have mastered (sort of) its features, functions, and intricacies; and can truly understand the value it brings in managing metadata across an Oracle EPM implementation's many tools and applications. Join Tyco EPM administrators as they review the transformative role of DRM, the challenges faced and solutions derived, and why every new Tyco application has DRM at its core.

DRG: Creating Workflows in DRM
Steven Davis , TopDown Consulting
Topic: EPM Data Integration - Subtopic: Metadata management/integration

Data governance continues to be a big topic. Regardless of company size, at some point a growing organization decides to implement workflow in order to capture the changes you need to make to the master data. This is where DRG comes in. In this session, Steven Davis, DRM and DRG expert, will show you how to create collaborative workflows in DRG. He will look at workflow models, requests, paths, tags, worklists, tasks, models, filters, and users. He will show you how to:
• Create models and tasks
• Build workflow objects
• Auto number your new accounts and create validations on the workflow
• Assign security to the users and hierarchies
• Separate duties and do conditional workflows
• Filter nodes
• And more
The session will include real-world examples as well as tips, tricks, and best practices for working collaboratively with DRG to make sure all users have the necessary change management and data quality remediation workflows to effectively do their jobs. NOTE: Attendees should have a good understanding of DRM. They should understand what workflow is and how it is used.

Best Practices of the Design and Delivery of Master Data from DRM to Downstream Applications for Large Implementations
Kate Helmer , Huron Consulting Group
Co-presenter(s): Joe Davis, Huron Consulting Group
Topic: EPM Data Integration - Subtopic: Metadata management/integration

Minimize maintenance and make delivering master data to your customers a breeze with the right design and methodology. Consuming master data from Oracle Data Relationship Management can be a convoluted mess of flat files (yuck!), tables, and technologies in a large enterprise; simplify and standardize by utilizing these design tips to creating a master data repository that can deliver and scale with ease. Join Joe Davis and Kate Helmer as they detail design considerations of master data repositories, the pros and cons of the methodology, and how to standardize the technical integrations to downstream systems.

How to Best Manage Your Relationships…With Data: Building a Strong Foundation for PAREXEL Using Oracle Data Relationship Management Best Practices
Julia Radovani , Peloton Group
Co-presenter(s): David Harter, Peloton Group
Topic: EPM Data Integration - Subtopic: Metadata management/integration

With the wide-spread popularity of integrated enterprise systems, a need has emerged for data management technology that drives the timely synchronization and alignment of metadata and transactional data. Leading organizations are positioning purpose-built Oracle data management and integration technologies as strategic pillars for achieving analytical and reporting systems expansion.
This presentation will discuss how PAREXEL, a leading clinical research organization, leveraged Oracle Data Relationship Management (DRM) to achieve data alignment and automation efficiency across changing operational ERP and EPM systems. At PAREXEL, DRM was used to consolidate hierarchies, automate the alignment of common metadata structures in target EPM systems, and promote shared data stewardship across Finance and IT functions. Particularly for non-financial master data, DRM enabled critical Project-Client data remediation processes and Organizational modeling capabilities.
In this presentation we will share some industry best practices around data management when integrating Oracle DRM with Financial Data Quality Management, Hyperion Planning, Hyperion Financial Management, and Account Reconciliation Manager. Some of the topics include:
• Mastering financial and non-financial data sets in DRM (Chart of Accounts, Capital Assets, Project, Client).
• Consolidating maintenance of data mapping rules in DRM to guarantee referential integrity and alignment across ERP and EPM data sets.
• Rationalizing data specification errors and re-mediating data quality issues from external applications in DRM.
