  • It provides the benefits of bulk file transmission, proper validation, and error handling.
  • It's great to run our collaborative workflow and financial consolidation processes, which allow us to maintain master, vendor, and customer financial data, among other things.
  • It's a fantastic instrument that delivers excellent results in its services, however the membership costs are a little costly.

  • The self-service product access for business users is a great thing that we relish from SAP Master Data Governance. I have been in a better situation to understand business data without involving IT skills.
  • Improving data integrity by identifying data duplicates and errors.
  • Improving transparency by offering statistics that enhance confidence to us when making amendments [to the] large volume of data.
  • With the free vendor customer support team and SAP community channels, I hardly encounter issues while consolidating data with SAP Master Data Governance.

  • SAP MDG is a powerful platform that enables implementation of advance master data automation such as field auto derivation.
  • Like SAP ECC, MDG performs very well throughout all sites around the world.
  • SAP MDG comes equipped with the standard ECC or S/4Hana data models. This greatly simplifies rollout of the governance platform.
  • As with all powerful and complex information platforms, SAP MDG does have a learning curve to it, especially if you plan on doing advanced things such as implementing MDM automation.
  • SAP MDG is capable of replicating data across many platforms (including non-SAP) however, this too, has a learning curve to it and will require some work. Bottom line...it doesn't just happen out of the box!
  • SAP MDG's flexibility can also be a weakness as sometimes you just want to implement a standard governance flow without defining everything from scratch. We have found that usually, you will need to define each workflow yourself in order for it to work properly.

  • Keeps track of missing attributes and provides reporting on data quality
  • Process analytics
  • Consolidates data to use best-matched records
  • If it's not managed properly, the same data could be placed in different places.
  • Hard to integrate with non-SAP systems
  • Hard to customize

  • Employee services are great, especially the ability to control every aspect including leaves and feedback.
  • Grading is one of the assets because both instructors and students can easily follow progress thanks to the program.
  • Booking is another pro of the product. We can easily see which venues are available or which ones are taken and book accordingly and publish the bookings.
  • Attendance
  • I would only say being user friendly because it is a bit hard to figure out how to use it at first.

  • Be able to manage so many different industries at one single place.
  • One only place for the whole company to look for Master Data info.
  • Enable a standardization of the processes in the company as all the master data is governed centrally.
  • In some cases, difficult to fit specific and vertical requirements of a concrete industry.
  • If it's not managed properly, the same data could be placed in different places.
