What are the issues normally faced for Persistent Identifier Module in Multidomain MDM

 The Persistent Identifier Module (PIM) in Multidomain MDM is a powerful tool that can help to ensure the integrity of master data. However, there are a few issues that can sometimes arise when using the PIM.

1. Deadlocks

One potential issue with the PIM is deadlocks. Deadlocks can occur when two or more processes are trying to access the same data at the same time, and each process is waiting for the other to finish. This can cause the processes to hang indefinitely.

2. Incorrect survivorship rules

The PIM uses survivorship rules to determine which persistent ID should be used when two or more records have the same identifier. If the survivorship rules are not correct, this can lead to incorrect data.

3. Data corruption

If there is a problem with the PIM, this can lead to data corruption. This can be caused by a number of factors, such as a bug in the PIM code, a hardware failure, or a network error.

4. Performance issues

The PIM can have a significant impact on performance, especially in large MDM deployments. This is because the PIM needs to access the database frequently to update the persistent IDs.

5. Complexity

The PIM is a complex module, and it can be difficult to configure and troubleshoot. This can be a challenge for organizations that do not have a lot of experience with MDM.

To mitigate these risks, it is important to carefully plan and implement the PIM. This includes carefully designing the survivorship rules, testing the PIM thoroughly, and monitoring the PIM for performance and errors.

Here are some additional tips for avoiding issues with the PIM:

  • Use a qualified MDM implementation partner to help you implement the PIM.
  • Make sure that the PIM is properly configured.
  • Monitor the PIM for performance and errors.
  • Keep the PIM up to date with the latest patches and releases.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure that the PIM is used effectively and that your master data is protected from corruption.
