Course Content

SAP Master Data Governance (MDG) is an important module within the SAP ERP. SAP defines MDG as a state-of-the-art master data management solution, providing out-of-the-box, domain-specific master data governance to centrally create, change and distribute or to consolidate master data across your complete enterprise system landscape. SAP Master Data Governance is one of the first fully-integrated and active data governance application with strong governance capabilities for the creation, maintenance, and replication of master data. SAP MDG is a prebuilt solution that requires configuration as against other modules that are toolsets and need coding. SAP MDG can also be configured to leverage consolidated master data from SAP NetWeaver MDM as well.
