The Talend MDM Platform functional architecture is an architectural model that identifies Talend MDM Platform functions, interactions and corresponding IT needs. The overall architecture has been described by isolating specific functionalities in functional blocks.
The following chart illustrates the main architectural functional blocks.
Several functional blocks are defined:
The Clients block includes one or more Talend Studio(s) and Web browsers that could be on the same or on different machines.
From the Studio, you can set up and operate a centralized repository. You can build data models that employ the necessary business and data rules to create a single copy of the master data. This master data will be propagated back to target and source systems.
From the Studio, you can also use predefined patterns and indicators to analyze data stored in different data sources, browse and query analysis results and remove corrupt, incomplete or inaccurate data.
From the Web browser, you can search, display or edit master data with tasks defined by the Studio.
The Servers block includes an MDM server - where the master data and the staging data are governed and monitored.
The Databases block includes the MDM database - where the master data, the staging data and the system data are stored.
From the Talend Data Quality Portal, you can generate reports on analysis results and share them with other business users.
