This course is for:
Implementing IBM InfoSphere MDM Server for PIM course offering promises to be what the business and technical audience have desired, a true implementation course focusing on IBM's implementation strategy for InfoSphere MDM Server for PIM. This course will introduce the methodology of Iterative and Incremental principles, as well as take the participant thru the hands-on process of building use cases to actually implementing the use cases within the IBM InfoSphere MDM Server for PIM product to create MDMPIM components. Not only will the participants have first hand experience in creating a true InfoSphere MDM Server for PIM solution but also witness the effectiveness of IBM's strategy as the implementation process moves through the phases of planning to actually deploying a solution.
Overview Common Implementation Issues MDMPIM Implementation Approach - Iterative and Incremental Approach Principles of the Iterative and Incremental Approach Discovery Iteration Construction Test Go Live Discovery Objectives Perform quantitative analysis: Data entities and their relationships; Integration points; Data volumes; Business processes; Data Migration; Usage pattern and hardware sizing Gather high level business requirements and define scope of the project Identify Stake Holders (Sponsors, End Users, System Users, etc) Deliverables High-level Scope High-level Solution Overview High-level Business Use Cases (descriptions only) prioritized by business value and risk Iteration Objectives "Getting started iteration" - setup systems and define processes Define overall solution architecture Sign off on high priority use cases Review solution architecture with Engineering Preparation of iteration plan Deliverables High level design documentation for all components (Overall Solution Architecture, Data Model, Workflows, Imports, Exports, Reports, Security) Deployment of a draft data model Iteration Plan Use Case Exercises Creation of Use Cases Create Use cases Prioritize Use Cases Sign off on high priority use cases Construction Objective Deliver working components of the solution Characteristics of the Construction Phase Detail Design Build Unit Test Deploy Deliverables Test Ready Code\Components (Initial and Subsequent Releases) Log of detailed design decisions Use Case Exercises One and Two Build 2 Use Cases using the Construction Phase (Detail Design and Build) Use Case 1: The Client would like to manage their attributes in MDMPIM Server because of inconsistent data. Use Case 2: The client would like to put limits on the value of the attributes in order to effectively control the normalization of the data. Use Case Exercises Three, Four and Five Build 3 Use Cases using the Construction Phase (Detail Design and Build) Use Case 3: The client would like to capture industry specific information for their items. Use Case 4: The client would like to match a supplier provided hierarchy with their own. Use Case 5: The client would like to formalize their process for creating a new item. Use Case Exercises Six, Seven and Eight Build 3 Use Cases using the Construction Phase (Detail Design and Build) Use Case 6: The client would like to formalize their process for maintaining an existing item. Use Case 7: The client would like to accept input files from a supplier. Use Case 8: The client would like to publish item data to an external system Solutions Presentation Each group will have 15 minutes to present their solution Deployment Discussion of the deployment process for MDM Server for PIM Test and Go Live Discussion of the Test and Go Live process for MDM Server for PIM Daily Course Agenda Day 1 Overview Discovery Phase Scenario Introduction Lunch Exercise Lab: Design 8 Use Cases based on Scenario Review Lab Exercise Discuss Iteration 0 Exercise Lab: Perform Iteration 0 Day 2 Review: Deployed Draft Data Model and Highlevel Design Document Construction Phase Overview Case Study: QandA Session Lunch Creation of Use Case One for Construction #1 Creation of Use Case Two for Construction #2 Day 3 Creation of Use Case Three for Construction #3 Creation of Use Case Four for Construction #4 Lunch Creation of Use Case Five for Construction #5 Day 4 Creation of Use Case Six for Construction #6 Creation of Use Case Seven for Construction #7 Lunch Creation of Use Case Eight for Construction #8 Project Wrap-Up Solutions Presentation Deploy Phase Test and Go Live Phase
