SAP Master Data Governance

SAP Master Data Governance (SAP MDG) for Efficient and Transparent Master Data Management

SAP’s Master Data Governance (MDG) solution offers you support in cross-board generation and management of consistent master data along your entire value chain. It delivers transparent and replicable information on changes in master data, rapid release processes and automatic, system-wide distribution.

Harmonize IT and business concerns

The goal of integrated master data management is to harmonize IT and business concerns. This creates a foundation for future projects, improves data quality and, in the long term, enhances your decision-making basis and thereby achieves indirect cost-saving benefits.

This approach not only serves to automate individual process steps or business processes – the right end2end strategy also lets you combine master data management with effective process management.

The SAP Master Data Governance solution was created specifically with this purpose in mind, and it is highly integrated with the SAP Business Suite. SAP MDG can be combined with process management components including rule-based workflow management using the Business Rule Framework (BRF+).

Fields of Application

SAP Master Data Governance offers master data management for financial, supplier and material masters. It provides predefined data models, validations and workflows that can be adapted to your specific needs. The secure release process is based on role and workflow definitions as well as automatic data validation during release and/or modification.

Software

SAP Master Data Governance (SAP MDG), Central Governance lets you establish a central ownership regime for all master data, in full accordance with the business rules and processes of your enterprise. MDG provides domain-specific, predefined applications as well as a framework for customer-defined master data. MDG offers change request-based management of master data using the following elements: workflow, staging, approval, activation and distribution.
