SAP Master Data Management

As digital transformation progresses, high data quality is more important than ever, and clean master data remains the foundation for making sound business decisions. It does not matter whether it is a matter of creating SAP master data for material; customer or vendor, maintaining data in the business partner under SAP S/4HANA; or preparing SAP master data for an upcoming SAP S/4HANA transformation and data migration.

End-to-end processes for master data maintenance in SAP for better data quality

Automated creation of master data for material, customer, vendor, and business partners in S/4HANA greatly reduces maintenance costs and prevents input errors. Creating data for any number of organizational units in just one step increases data security and harmonization. Thanks to a flexible workflow concept, all environment data and necessary process steps can be integrated.

The SAP add-on MDC Master Data Cockpit supports the checking of data records for completeness and the release of master records for completing an SAP workflow. The respective employees are notified automatically via e-mail from the SAP workflow.

Since the process is transparent, you can keep track of all new steps at any time. Another important aspect: The MDC Master Data Cockpit can be integrated completely into SAP and customized.

For automated SAP master data changes via workflow in the productive system, the SAP add-on MDC Process Cockpit is the solution. Both SAP add-ons are available separately and can be combined with one another.

MDC Process Cockpit: Automating master data changes in SAP

Questions about responsibilities, approvals, and clearances are a regular part of daily business when it comes to making changes to productive master data. If these processes are still manual – via e-mail, paper form, phone call, or even without communication – they are often confusing and erroneous. And also time-consuming for everyone involved.

This can be changed with an automated workflow network in SAP. valantic’s MDC Process Cockpit experts will be happy to help you. 

Controlling SAP master data change processes with workflows

With our new MDC Process Cockpit, your company can simplify and structure its SAP master data change processes in (e.g. material discontinuation, field changes in the material master data, or address changes) and control these securely via flexible SAP master data workflows – thus making processes transparent and efficient for everyone involved with significantly shorter throughput times.

The MDC Process Cockpit for automated SAP master data management is available as a stand-alone solution or in combination with the MDC Master Data Cockpit. Both solutions are completely integrated in SAP and require no data migration.
