Creating a single master data record that can be transmitted between systems is practical. To make a CR for commercial activity that follows a procedure and can be tracked in this way. It works with the company's data quality and optimization teams to ensure that the data is consistent.

Data governance is an enterprise-wide discipline with a vast purview. The picture of what data governance is getting easily muddled when you consider the many types of data: transactional data, behavioral data, performance data, temporal data, operational data, and many more. As an organization, we need a single customer view across multiple lines-of-business, for differing purposes. And those different purposes will raise questions as to the actual definition or meaning of ‘customer’. Master data governance allows a glossary of agreed terminology to be created along with particular metadata attributes which are used to define ‘customer’ and provide a standard and consistent definition across the organization. This reduces the scope for misinterpretation, misuse, confusion, and errors in the future.

A university is a body which has very different departments and needs. That's why, a higher education context is actually a very suitable context for SAP use. Instructors and students can use it even as a learning management system, while instructors can easily switch to the employee view to see their payments, leaves and other facilities provided by the employer. Human Resources and IT for example can easily communicate with relevant parties with a single software. However, for very small institutions which do not need expansion it may be too much to handle.

Large organizations with multiple business units operating across regions and geographies will benefit greatly from SAP Master Data Governance. Companies like ours where acquisitions are a norm, we face severe challenges with IT Data consolidation due to too much duplicate data. Our procurement, finance and sales data go a huge facelift with SAP [Master Data Governance].

SAP Master Date Governance [currently] is only suitable for large companies. Not only for the costs, but for the robustness of the system, it contains and manages a lot of information. This is great for large companies, but for small companies, a system aimed at the small business owner is lacking. Currently you have to look for the solution in a not so safe software example (Excel). Because the cost of implementation and investment in the tool is high for a small business.
If there was a less complete and more objective tool aimed at small businesses, surely the reach of the tool would be greater.

We believe that SAP Master Data Governance fits well in an SAP landscape with SAP systems. If you get a hybrid landscape with different data models, it requires a bit more effort to get the solution configured. All the existent validations and UI are SAP data model focused. The replication is also straightforward with SAP systems. I would say it is less appropriate if you only have non-SAP systems in your landscape.

If you are in a large company, spanning many legal entities and are using SAP ERP as your main transactional system, SAP MDG is a great choice with many possibilities. Furthermore, if your landscape includes many products in the SAP family where data synchronization is required, it is also a great choice. If you are looking for a generic platform for data replication among many different non-SAP systems, you should careful study how this would work in practice. Additionally, if you are also looking for a data quality reporting platform, the combination of SAP MDG, Information Steward, and Data Services is very powerful and capable to achieve this.

SAP Master Data Governance is best suited to manage any master data across any enterprise. The availability to work with product characteristics allows you to define what is needed for each kind of product. Also, it can be used to provide data to third-party systems. In some cases, it is difficult to fit the specific and vertical requirements of certain industries.

SAP MDG is clearly focused on those organizations that have to manage a huge amount of data with several sources. It allows you to consolidate and update the data in one single place. Also, it can be used to provide data to third-party systems.

The answer is mainly based on the volume of the data. In case you have a huge amount of objects (product, customers, ...) and every single entity has many entry points is a strong recommendation. The tool allows customizing alerts of completion and data quality that helps a lo having good data in the system,
