This course is designed for anyone who wants to get an understanding of how to use and customize the InfoSphere Master Data Management Advanced Edition using the InfoSphere MDM Workbench. This course takes a participant through the process of setting up a local workstation to customizing the InfoSphere MDM using the InfoSphere MDM Workbench. The focus of the course is on the core features of the Workbench: Setting up a Development Environment, creating an Addition, creating an Extension, creating a Behavior Extension, creating a composite service, working with Product Types, ceating a Spec, and importing a physical data model. For each core area, the instructor will explain the high-level concepts, have the participants work with the feature and then demo and review the feature details. Heavy emphasis is put on exercises and activities, allowing course participants to apply the knowledge that they learn in the classroom, after course conclusion.
