Talend MDM architecture can be broken down into functional blocks that enable interaction between users and the MDM Hub and their corresponding IT needs.
The chart below illustrates the main building blocks of Talend MDM.
The building blocks you have available for use depend on your license and on which edition of MDM you have.
The list below describes the main building blocks of Talend MDM:
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, administrators can set up and operate a centralized master data repository. They can build data models that employ the necessary business and data rules to create a single master copy of the master data. This master data will be propagated back to target and source systems.
From the Web browser, business users and data stewards can search, display or edit master data handled by the Studio.
The Talend Servers block includes an MDM server - where the master data is governed and monitored.
The Databases block includes the MDM database - where the master data is stored.
For further information about how Talend MDM fits in with the other products in the Talend suite, see the Talend Installation Guide.
