What are the benefits of Support Package 8?
The latest support package SAP NetWeaver MDM 7.1 brings additional value by further enhancing MDM usability, administration, security and performance. In this blog, I’d like to shed light on one particular usability enhancement: the optimized visualization in hierachy management.
With SP08, clear usability enhancements have been made in displaying record hierarchies.
For example, now, you can clearly see in the MDM Data Manager UI, which suppliers offer a specific product. Technically speaking, the Record Hierarchy Display option lets you see the main table records linked from each record on the current main table, and navigate to those records.
In addition, a new Relations Graph window lets you navigate graphically backward and forward through a record’s hierarchical relationships.
There are many more things to benefit from in SP08, including, for example, usability improvements in tuple handling, and enhancements in system administration, security and performance. For a complete description, see the What’s New in MDM 7.1 SP08 document and SAP Note 1573045.
Enjoy the new package,
