Getting Started with SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management
Today, large and mid-scale companies operating on the base of diversified IT landscapes often suffer from master data that is inconsistently stored in multiple, disconnected systems or databases. Unmanaged master data is notoriously inaccurate, redundant, and full of discrepancies, all of which result in high maintenance costs, vulnerable business processes and poor business decisions.
SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management (MDM) enables companies to consolidate and harmonize their master data within heterogeneous IT landscapes. It consistently delivers vastly reduced data maintenance costs, ensures cross-system data consistency, accelerates the execution of business processes, and greatly improves decision-making.
