Ubisoft selects EBX.Platform from Orchestra Networks for its Data Governance / Master Data Management initiative

Orchestra Networks, leading software vendor specialized in Data Governance / Master Data Management announces that Ubisoft has selected its EBX.Platform software for its worldwide MDM program.

Paris, February 16, 2010. Ubisoft is a leading producer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment products worldwide.

Diversity of its markets, product brands, channels and partners prompted Ubisoft to launch in 2009 a program to improve governance on its reference and master data. To achieve this, Ubisoft has selected EBX.Platform, the only MDM software to be able to absorb the complex relationships and provide its worldwide business users a unified tool for Data Governance.

Our MDM program starts with the management of products and development project hierarchies. This is complex, far beyond a simple product catalog” says Nasser Nailli, Business Intelligence Director at Ubisoft. “Decentralization of our production, publishing and distribution activities requires not only complex data models, but also highly sophisticated collaborative data governance features“.

The software evaluations, and choosing EBX.Platform illustrated two major criteria critical to Ubisoft:

»As a generic, model-driven software, EBX.Platform allows Ubisoft to model any type of reference / master data and design hierarchical models with complex relationships

» EBX.Platform Web-based Data Governance UI provides a rich set of Data Governance features for business teams: tables and hierarchies authoring, change and approval work-flow, management of rights and versions, standard integration interfaces

Ubisoft is a very prestigious reference for Orchestra Networks“, says Christophe Barriolade, President & CEO of Orchestra Networks. “Deployment of our EBX.Platform on this first Product MDM project demonstrates once again that our solution can address a initial set of data, and then be reused to cover virtually all reference and master data across the enterprise, in a robust, scalable and secure way“.
