What is Riversand?

Riversand is a cloud-native platform offering a range of solutions for Master Data management, PXM and CXM. It is recognised by Gartner as a leader in Master Data management solutions and by Forrester as a leader in product Information Management.

Its flagship is the Master Data Experience Platform (MDxP), which allows customers to leverage product data through automation, intelligent insights, and multi-domain SaaS solutions. It drives the digital transformation journey for its customers by enabling improved business agility, faster adoption and improved collaboration company-wide.

Riversand features

The Riversand platform is built on a four-layer model:

Apps: businesses can customise Riversand platform to their needs. Custom apps can easily be created using Riversand’s SDK (Software Development Kit). The platform adds value for businesses, rather than obliging them to pay again and again for unscalable modifications.

Experience: Businesses can deploy the experience Layer to provide customers, consumers, suppliers, distributors, and partners with an optimal experience, while increasing searchability.

Governance:  it is the quality of intelligence that helps businesses make the right decisions at the right time. That reliability is based on what kind of data it gathers. This layer enables businesses to establish reliable data governance and stewardship, essential for the foundation of effective decision-making processes.

Master Data Experience: the platform is built on a flexible base layer that handles multiple domains with built-in analytics, providing actionable insights to business users at all levels, and guaranteeing IT and security compliance.

It offers, among others, the following features;

  • Cloud-native, multi-domain: built from the ground-up for elastic scale and to handle structured and unstructured data
  • Workflows; automated, robust, and seamless, to enable collaboration
  • Smart category-based templates; pre-validated to your exact requirements, to offer ease of content mapping
  • Connectors; a continually-growing breadth and depth of connectors to a growing number of endpoints
  • Dynamic data governance; balancing speed of onboarding versus quality of content
  • Business rules engine; robust and flexible, and capable of validating and automating any content to its contextual needs
  • Complete visibility of product content: from attributes, to digital assets, to product relationships, and more
  • Innovative UI; user-tested for multiple roles
  • Data privacy: compliant with and certified across multiple global certifications

Riversand migration

Riversand has extensive experience in the operational and support aspects of data migration. Alongside their partners, they always carry out pre-migration activities such as general guidelines, data grooming, and creation of guidelines. They also configure the migration tool and migration process. Once completed, they issue a post-migration report.

As official Riversand partner, we ensure that migration planning and preparation is fully aligned with the client’s requirements and that there will be no unexpected setbacks during the ETL process.

Riversand integration

Integration and interoperability is central to Riversand’s MDM platform. It is deployed alongside existing stacks so that businesses can maximise its potential;

eCommerce – full integration with all eCommerce platforms

Marketplaces – the PIM capabilities of the Riversand platform enable businesses to publish product data directly to online marketplaces

Data Aggregation – to increase efficiency of data import and aggregation, the MDM solution is integrated with data aggregation software

Simple Integrations – a platform which is built to enable easy (single integration point and open APIs) integrations can easily connect with other software platforms that businesses rely on, reducing its complexity (and the costs of IT support)
