Concento RDG provides an effortless Cross Entity Rule Derivation

Concento™ Rapid Data Governance (RDG) is an SAP UI5 Cloud-Based Application that builds on the SAP Business Technology Platform to automate MDG customizing and enhancements. It provides an elegant UI and sensible logic to help users to perform necessary tasks for a typical SAP MDG implementation.
