IM102 High Data Quality in Business Scenarios by Consuming Enterprise Services
Based on the scenario where SAP Master Data Management (SAP MDM) holds the master data as leading system, SAP Consulting has successfully implemented the Business Partner creation process following the SOA approach. Technically MDMs and the attached ECC system's functionality has been exposed as Web services and registered in the SAP Enterprise Service Repository. Consumed by a Modeling Framework, in this case the SAP NetWeaver Visual Composer, the individual Web services have been wrapped to workflow steps and combined to a logical process flow. Accompanied with UI elements, also modeled in the SAP NetWeaver Visual Composer, the creation workflow can be instantiated in the SAP NetWeaver Portal. To the process designer as well as to the end user the workflow appears to be transparent and independent from the underlying architecture.
