Demo: Using webMethods OneData Workflow to Validate Change

OneData’s MDM governance framework provides a highly configurable workflow engine. Some companies, in fact, depend on OneData’s workflow as their primary tool for validating and approving changes made to any kind of sharable, enterprise data.

Depending on business requirements, automated workflows are constructed as simple or complex processes, involving any number of data stewards and business users. (Insurance companies, for example, can be heavy workflow users in order to support SOX compliance).

Workflow triggers are associated with change to any data attribute (down to the column level), and based specifically on whether the change is generated by the insertion of a new value or record, the updating of a value, or its deletion.

In this first MDM demo of the new webMethods video series, OneData workflow is called into action when an entire sales department is moved to a new location.
