FAQ about SAP Master Data Governance (SAP MDG)

If you deal with master data management for the first time it’s usually quite difficult to find relevant information on all the webpages, marketing brochures, documentations and communities that exists. Some information there is really high level, other is very technical and none of them answers usually your “first” basic questions. In the mentioned FAQ document I’d like to collect these common questions I’m often asked in customer workshops about SAP Master Data Governance like

  • What’s the difference between Master Data Management (MDM) and Master Data Governance (MDG)

  • What is SAP MDG from a technical perspective and

  • Is SAP MDG a dedicated separated system?

These and many more questions with answers are listed in this FAQ document

If not explicitly mentioned all answers are based on the latest SAP MDG release “SAP Master Data Governance on SAP S/4HANA” release 1909” (April 2020).

When the FAQ document will be updated, I will add a comment on the blog post so please follow the blog to get notification of any updates.
