Master Data Governance

Use

With this feature, you can provide central ownership of master data in line with a company’s business rules and processes. MDG delivers domain-specific, out-of-the-box applications as well as a framework for custom-defined master data. MDG offers change request-based processing of master data with integrated workflow, staging, approval, activation, and distribution. MDG can use SAP and company-specific business logic to create master data ready to be used in a company’s business processes.

MDG Consolidation and Mass Processing provides an understanding of enterprise master data that is owned and maintained de-centrally, as well as general mass processing capabilities for master data. MDG Consolidation delivers capabilities to standardize the master data and to detect duplicates. For each of the resulting match groups, MDG Consolidation calculates a best record out of the duplicates in that group, using survivorship rules on the master data attributes. The best records can be used in dedicated analytical or business scenarios. Mass Processing enables you to update multiple master data records at a time. To update records, you select the fields and records you want to change. The system then provides statistics on the changed fields and validates the data for business transactions use.

Within MDG you can combine consolidation and mass processing together with central governance to support various master data management scenarios, like initial load of master data as a starting point for central governance, consolidation of master data after mergers and acquisitions, or combinations where you keep de-central ownership of master data in some parts of the company while centralizing master data ownership in other parts
