Golden Record aka Master Data¶
AgileData.io is very flexible and allows you to name your Concepts, Details and Events in any way that makes sense to you or your organisation.
When dealing with data that is stored in multiple systems of record there are a number of patterns we have seen for how you create a golden record for these. These can also be referred to as Master Data or Single View.
Feel free to pick one and use it or make up your own naming standards/ontology/taxonomy.
Examples of Golden Records we have seen are:
These examples are interchangeable in the pattern, for our examples we will use Customers .
Golden Record Concept Pattern¶
Multiple System of Record Concept definitions and combined Golden Record Concept (recommended)¶
In this pattern we define multiple Concepts, one for each system of record and a separate Golden Record Concept, that is defined based on matching rules.
The Golden Record has its own Detail, that is derived from the SOR Concept Detail, using a Golden record survival rule.
