What are the different phases of Informatica MDM Implemantion


Are you planning to implement the Informatica Master Data Management project? Are you looking for what are the details you need to capture? If so, then you reached the right place. In this article, we will understand what are the phases of Informatica MDM implementation. We will also see what will be the outcome of each phase.


Introduction:

There are 5 phases in Informatica Master Data Management implementation.




1. Discovery Phase
2. Design Phase
3. Development Phase
4. Testing Phase
5. Deployment Phase



Let's understand each of these phases one by one.


A. Discovery Phase:

We need to perform the activities below as part of the discovery phase -
  • Perform data profiling
  • Conduct interviews and workshops 
  • Document solution requirements 
  • Define conceptual architecture 
  • Define the logical data model 

What will be output?
The output of this phase will be 1. Functional Requirements Specification 2. Testing Plan


B. Design Phase:

We need to perform the activities below as part of the Design phase -
  • Define detailed business rules 
  • Develop system design specifications for all technology components 
  • Develop Traceability Matrix 
  • Establish DEV Environment 

What will be output?
The output of this phase will be 1. System Design Specification 2. Traceability Matrix

C. Development  Phase:

We need to perform the activities below as part of the Development phase -
  • Configure and develop MDM components
  • Perform unit testing
  • Develop Test Scripts 
  • Develop Test Schedule 
  • Update Traceability Matrix 
  • Establish QA and PROD Environment 

What will be output?
The output of this phase will be 1. Configured and developed MDM components 2. Test Scripts 3. Traceability Matrix





D. Testing Phase:

We need to perform the activities below as part of the Testing phase -
  • Execute System Testing 
  • Execute Rules Testing 
  • Execute Integration Testing 
  • Execute User Acceptance Testing 
  • Develop Test Summary Report 

What will be output?
The output of this phase will be 1. Tested, production-ready MDM solution 2. Test Script Results 3. Test Summary Report 

E. Deployment Phase:

We need to perform the activities below as part of the Deployment phase -
Deploy the Solution into the Production Environment 
Execute the initial IDL Initiate 
Gray Area Reconciliation 

What will be output?
The output of this phase will be  1. Deployed solution Initial data loaded and ready for reconciliation
