For batch processing, data is loaded from source systems and processed in Informatica MDM Hub via a series of processes.

Land: Transfers data from a source system (external to Informatica MDM Hub) to landing tables in the Hub Store. Part of the reconciliation process.

Stage: Retrieves data from the landing table, cleanses it (if applicable), and copies it into a staging table in the Hub Store. Part of the reconciliation process.

Load: Loads data from the staging table into the corresponding Hub Store table (base object or dependent object). Part of the reconciliation process.

Tokenize: Generates match tokens in a match key table that are used subsequently by the match process to identify candidate base object records for matching.

Match: Compares records for points of similarity (based on match rules), determines whether records are duplicates, and flags duplicate records for consolidation. Part of the reconciliation process.

Consolidates: Merges data in duplicate records to create a consolidated record that contains the most reliable cell values from the source records. Part of the reconciliation process.

Publish: Publishes the BVT to other systems or processes via outbound JMS message queues. Part of the distribution process.
