Understanding Survivorship Groups and Strategies
Survivorship is the process of selecting the best data from different systems and merging it into one record. In many organizations, it is a complex process that involves several teams, departments, and systems. To manage this process effectively, many companies use survivorship groups and strategies. What Are Survivorship Groups? A survivorship group is a collection of attributes that define the criteria for selecting the best data. It is created based on roles or departments that have access to the data. For example, a marketing team might have a survivorship group that selects the best data for marketing purposes, while the sales team might have a different group that selects the best data for sales purposes. In a survivorship group, you can define the attributes that are used to select the best data, as well as the rules and filters that determine which data is selected. You can also define the order in which the data sources are considered, and you can exclude certain sources if necessary.
