IS MDM7.1 a pure SAP basis work?
For MDM7.0 and lower version, system integrators do most of the work while basis people only do install and alike.
It is said that from MDM 7.1 most of the work like configuration, mapping, etc. that used to be done by integrators, will
be done by basis persons.
Is that true?
First of all as suggested by Shiv- whole MDM operations are not basis activities. as data modelling, validations, assignment, data quality and overall maintainance needs to be done by MDM person.
for more clarity you can follow below link.
and it totally depends on you whether you opt to learn MDM,since this product is very much inclined towards Enterprise information managment now, which can help you in a broad way.
hope it helps.
