You may already have seen and learned quite a bit about the federation of master data governance, the many benefits it can have for your organization, and how you can optimize master data management through federated data governance.
For example, in his insightful blog post Plan your own MDM roadmap with SAP Master Data Governance, Markus Kuppe explains how federation provides value, and why this could be the more effective approach for organizations that are eager to strike a balance between central and decentralized master data management to become more modular, and to be able to handle master data as perfectly as possible, exactly where it is best understood.
You can also find a broader perspective in a recent SAP Thought Leadership Paper that describes why you need the right mix of technology and organizational support as well as effective data governance to optimize data management, all in the context of federated master data governance.
As an addition to the existing blog posts and papers, we’ve published a video about Federated Master Data Governance that uses the creation of a new customer record in SAP Sales Cloud as an example to show the connection between:
- the management of core master data in SAP Master Data Governance, cloud edition,
- the management of application-specific data in the application where it is best understood, and
- a master data management process for the governance of core and application data across different applications.
