Duration : 3 days

The InfoSphere MDM V11

Physical Module Algorithms course prepares you to work with and customize the algorithm configurations deployed to the InfoShere MDM Probabilistic Matching Engine (PME) for the Physical MDM implementation.

Learn about

  • Information Management
  • InfoSphere Master Data Management (MDM)
  • InfoSphere Master Data Management


  • Understand how Duplicate Suspect Processing and Search (using PME) work for Physical Implementations of InfoSphere MDM.
  • Understand the MDM configuration project and database tables used by the PME.
  • Understand the PME Algorithms (Standardization, Bucketing and Comparison steps) and how to create and customize the algorithms using the workbench.
  • Understand how to analyze the Bucketing steps in an algorithm.
  • Understand how to generate weights for a given algorithm and how those weights are generated based on a sample database set.
  • Understand how to analyze the weights that are generated using the workbench.
  • Understand how to deploy the PME configuration for a Physical implementation of InfoSphere MDM.
