SAP Information Steward is well suited for companies looking for profiling data, monitoring data quality and managing policies. It provides dashboards and features to create the awareness on Data Quality dimensions. SAP IS is not suited to manage huge amount of data due to performance issues. It is not designed to correct data by its own. However, It can remediate data through integration with SAP Master Data Governance or SAP Data Services.

It is well suited when looking for a solution to manage master data centrally. Master Data Governance also allows for audit trails of master data changes. SAP Master Data Governance also maintains data integrity. It also provides ease of managing master data. Area for SAP Master Data Governance to improve upon is UI (User Interface). WebDynpro UI is very slow and needs improvement.

  • There have been a lot of errors, particularly in Business Partner replication. We have had to contact SAP on several occasions to fix this and implemented several OSS notes. When we are ready to push the master data from MDG to cFin, the cFin replication config has to be turned off.

      The utility of the software is quite adequate and high quality. However, especially for a new user it may be difficult to manage all aspects of the program without adequate and comprehensive training. Even when the training is complete, the users may need support for details throughout the process. IT is a useful software which is difficult to manage in a short time

      I believe many features from SAP Information Steward are available in other SAP products as well hence it is more confusing for business or customers to do the right selection. Moreover SAP strategy is not very clear for this particular product hence often we are confused while exploring more related scenarios

      We did not evaluate any COTS product as an alternative. We have evaluated internal process changes as an option. However, [SAP Master Data Governance] solution provided far greater value for money than any process improvements. That being said, [Master Data Governance] is not an alternative to good process. It compliments good data management and well defined processes. Engaging experienced consultants will improve outcomes of [Master Data Governance] implementation.
