Hierarchy Management

Manage complex hierarchies in your master data with our expertise.

Corporations and institutions are facing increasingly complex hierarchy management challenges.  Most companies must manage multiple hierarchies that are internally created and/or externally generated, including sales and account, customer, and financial hierarchies.  Additionally, changes to organizational structures, accounts, or products make hierarchy management difficult and cause adverse effects that ripple across the entire organization.

To minimize those and other challenges, LumenData can help you design, manage, and govern your hierarchies across all your master data.
