SAP NetWeaver MDM [EOL] Review

It has helped standardise processes, enforcing strict workflow and audit control, as well as controlling data input, and reducing duplicates. However, it's now obsolete.


Valuable Features

  • Ease of modelling
  • Flexibility of design

Improvements to My Organization

It has helped standardise processes, enforcing strict workflow and audit control, as well as controlling data input, and reducing duplicates.

Room for Improvement

It's obsolete, and not generally available.

Use of Solution

I've used it for eight years. We use it alongside SAP Master Data Governance (MDG).

Scalability Issues

Yes, unscalable for large volumes and hence obsoleted by the vendor.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

It's good.

Technical Support:

It's good.

Previous Solutions

It's primarily used in SAP ERP landscapes where integration with other vendors is a challenge due to the native structures and data model of SAP ECC. Both MDM and MDG have a strong integration layer for SAP ECC instances

Initial Setup

It's complex, as most implementations require ingestion of data from multiple sources, definition of matching and merging rules, creation of workflow for data entry, as well as publishing data to multiple sources.

Implementation Team

Implemented through my team for clients. Any implementation should have a robust business case and a supportive executive sponsor. It is imperative to understand the business requirements clearly upfront, and work with an experienced SI in a transformation type programme to get the maximum benefit.

ROI

This is very subjective, and would depend upon the type of implementation as well as the business case, degree of adoption, etc.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
