What are the differences between IDD Data View and IDD Business Entity applications

Would you like to know what are differences between Legacy IDD and Entity 360 or   Entity application? Are you also interested in knowing what are the open issues with Legacy IDD and Entity 360 application? If so, then you reached the right place. In this article, we will have a detailed discussion about the differences and features of both the applications. These differences are captured based on Informatica MDM 10.3 HF1.

IDD Data View
IDD Business Entity
Use of IDD User Exits
1.     Integral part of IDD Configuration
        2.    Easy to implement customization
        3.    Easy to deploy as a component of IDD
        4.    No separate resource configuration required, resources allocated to IDD will be used for User Exist
       5.    Error handling follows MDM standard practice, no additional handling is required
         6.    No additional security required as it integral part of IDD Application
No User Exit support
        1.    Need to write external services (Restful or SOAP-based Web Services)
       2.     Required additional efforts to build and implement and deploy these external services
        3.    For scalability, high availability of external services, additional dedicated servers are required
        4.    Need to apply and maintain security  as these are external services to IDD Business entity
         5.    Extra error handling is required to follow MDM standard practice
      6.    Extra the configuration is required to call external services
         7.    Dedicated resources need to be allocated to handle user requests
Data Import template
IDD Data View provides the feature to import data. It is a very helpful tool when business would like to import bulk data in need basic. No need to create or update requires manually
Do not support Bulk import template.
Need to create or update bulk volume of data manually
Unmerge functionality
It supports both Tree unmerge and linear unmerge.
Note: During Tree unmerge unmerged unmerge records get separated from the group. During linear unmerge children records of unmerged record remain associated.
Supports the only Tree unmerge
Easy to integrate repots in the IDD application using Jasper Reports
Jaspersoft reports work in a Home page only if it is the only component in the Home page.
If IDD application includes workflows, we must generate the business entity schema as a requirement for Data Director to manage the workflow tasks. However, we need to migrate to business entities
The business entity the schema will be generated as part of Business Entity application publish event using the Provisioning Tool.
Both Entity and IDD Data Views- Hybrid mode
Informatica recommends that the Hybrid mode only on a temporary basis

Manual Override of matched record
Manual override  of value in the Matches view is allowed
Manual override a value in the Matching Records view is not allowed
Hierarchy View
Hierarchy relationships can be configured to show in a section to show duplicate hierarchy records. 
The Hierarchy view does NOT permit the following actions:-
     ·         Finding a duplicate entity.
     ·         Initiating a merge.
     ·         Sharing a bookmark URL
     1.       In the task inbox on the Home page, you cannot filter tasks by the creation date.
     2.       When you export search results that are based on a timeline, the export process ignores the timeline and exports all data.
     1.       The Cross Reference page and the Merge Preview page have pagination issues.
     2.       In the search results, some rows are empty. The rows represent records that are filtered out because the user does not have permission to view the records.
     3.       When a user role does not include the create and read privileges for a business entity, users with this role can still view the tasks associated with the business entity.
     4.       In the History view, the timescale labels in the Options menu do not appear correctly initially.
     5.       In the Hierarchy view, business entities in the Relationships tab of the history do not open in Business Entity view.
     6.       In the Timeline view, you cannot open the relationship records that appear on the Relationships tab.
     7.       In the Hierarchy view, in the Entity Details dialog box, when you click More Details, the dialog box closes without opening the selected business entity.
     8.       In the Matching Records view, when you merge records, the system can appear unresponsive.
     9.       If you delete a record and then search for the record, the ROWID of the deleted record still displays.
     10.   In the History view, when you try to view event detail, an error might occur.
