Loading Data into Siebel UCM and Updating External Systems
After installation of Siebel Universal Customer Master (Siebel UCM), the initial customer data must be loaded into the database. In preparation for the this process, it is recommended to:
- Cleanse the data in each external system prior to loading data
- Load the best or highest quality data first
Use Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager (Siebel EIM) to load bulk data records into the Siebel UCM. For further information on Siebel EIM, see Siebel EIM and Integration of Siebel Master Data Applications and Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager Administration Guide.
