SAP Master Data Management (SAP MDM) is a component of SAP NetWeaver product group and is used as a platform to consolidate, cleanse and synchronize a single version of the truth for master data within a heterogeneous application landscape. It has the ability to distribute internally and externally to SAP and non-SAP applications. SAP MDM is a key enabler of SAP Enterprise Service-Oriented Architecture. Standard system architecture would consist of a single central MDM server connected to client systems through SAP Exchange Infrastructure using XML documents, although connectivity without SAP XI can also be achieved. There are five standard implementation scenarios:

1) Content Consolidation - centralized cleansing, de-duplication and consolidation, enabling key mapping and consolidated group reporting in SAP BI. No re-distribution of cleansed data.

2) Master Data Harmonization - as for Content Consolidation, plus re-distribution of cleansed, consolidated master data.

3) Central Master Data Management - as for Master Data Harmonization, but all master data is maintained in the central MDM system. No maintenance of master data occurs in the connected client systems.

4) Rich Product Content Management - Catalogue management and publishing. Uses elements of Content Consolidation to centrally store rich content (images, PDF files, video, sound etc.) together with standard content in order to produce product catalogues (web or print). Has a standard adapter to export content to DTP packages.

5) Global Data Synchronization - provides consistent trade item information exchange with retailers through data hubs (e.g. 1SYNC)

SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management ensures cross-system data consistency through interactive distribution. It integrates business processes across the extended value chain, delivering features and functions to enable:

Master data consolidation

Synchronization and distribution of master data

Centralized management of master data

Administration of master data

Management of internal content

Catalog search

Print catalog customization

Multi channel syndication of product catalog content

Business process support

Business analytics and reporting

SAP is currently on its second iteration of MDM software. Facing limited adoption of its initial release, SAP changed direction and in 2004 purchased a small vendor in the PIM space called A2i. This code has become the basis for the currently shipping SAP MDM 5.5, and as such, most analysts consider SAP MDM to be more of a PIM than a general MDM product at this time.


Question 1: About MDM

I am working in CCM 2.0 on SRM 5.0 and am interested to know more about MDM. I currently work as a Functional Consultant. I am interested to know what does the MDM do, and as a functional consultant, what would be my role.

Can you help me where to look for details as a launching point?

A: Here is the MDM home page (including relevant links to eLearning etc.):
