Passive governance is the process where all the data from an existing system is taken and pulled into MDO. Business rules/validations are run. Any errors returned from these validations are forwarded to authorized users whom amend and re-validate the data which is then pushed to the source system. From this stage, active governance is applied.
MDO provides passive governance for Vendor Master data. Standard business rules (schema rules) are provided by MDO and, based on these, incorrect and inconsistent records are identified. MDO also provides the ability to add customized schema rules for vendor data.
