Lock your horns with SAP’s national leaders of data management to learn how the SAP Master Data Governance application, the newest solution in the master data management portfolio, is designed and what’s going on behind the scenes. Ever since SAP Master Data Governance went into ramp-up in December 2010, we have had an enthusiastic and overwhelming response from customers of the SAP ERP application. In this workshop, you learn how master data governance approaches the data management problem within the SAP software landscape with the utmost ease and efficiency. White board–led sessions provide insight into all aspects of the solution (data model, security, workflow, data replication, extensibility, and customization). The workshop equips you with more knowledge to continue your master data journey with SAP Master Data Governance and start your projects off on the right foot. This session will be led by Vikas Lodha and Simer Grewal from the enterprise information management (EIM) center of excellence and product management team.
