WHAT IS STEP?

STEP is a Multidomain Master Data Management platform that integrates multiple disparate systems in your company by streamlining the process of aggregating and consolidating information around your products, customers, suppliers, employees, assets, location and reference data from multiple sources and formats, connecting that information to derive actionable insights, and publishing that information to backend systems and/or to online and offline channels.

This enterprise capable platform provides a common set of functionality allowing you to work from one, seamless platform which makes your work more predictable, significantly lowering costs and gives you quicker time-to-value when implementing and maintaining a master data project.

PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION

Waiting for queries that search through millions of records or that deal with complex operations isn’t just time consuming, it’s costly. Traditional disk-based databases can’t provide you with the type of results you need. In-memory databases offer much faster performance. By using in-memory technology as part of your MDM system, you can:

  • Perform faster object type, hierarchy and ID searches
  • Accelerate operations on complex data models, including workflow transitions, object approvals and UI displays
  • Quickly complete heavy write operations such as large imports
