Flexible with good reporting and a very easy to use GUI

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used for workflows. For example, in Turkey, some of our customers have different material quotes, material numbers, or material types. Everything is so confusing from the main company. It's hard to go over the old data. However, with MDG, they can see all the data in the system. It allows for an effective data workflow. There are workflows for all kinds of items, including materials, data, customer's financials, vendor details, ERPs, etc.

Pros and Cons

  • "We've found the solution to be quite flexible."
  • "The implementation could be easier."

What other advice do I have?

I'm an SAP consultant. I would recommend the solution to other users. It's flexible and has a good GUI. It's useful for business processes. Overall, I would rate the product at an eight out of ten. We've been mostly pleased with the results.

Good workflows and record standardization but needs to be more flexible

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is great at standardizing all of our records."
  • "Overall, they just a little bit more flexibility in terms of assigning roles or adding new roles. We have a longer approval process, so we need to break it down into more roles than what is typically available and we need to hard-code it."

What other advice do I have?

We're clients. We don't have a business relationship with eh client. We've been implementing the solution for a number of years, as it's a National Defense project. The entire project is ongoing. Due to the nature of the project, we don't have anything on the cloud. Overall, I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

Security mobile app provided , ample features, saves money, and customer service responsive

What is our primary use case?

The solution is for creating and managing a Master Data across an organization. We implement the solution for customers to streamline the creation, inundation, and dilution of Master Data across domains, such as financial masters. The main use case is to increase data quality by starting to create the right data with the right people and distribute it to the consuming systems. We want to enable users to be able to identify the golden record for all of a particular Master Data set. For example, to prevent a unique customer from getting mixed up in the use cases. Bringing in data… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Some of the features that I have found to be beneficial are the search and uploads functions."
  • "The UI could improve by being more neat and clean. Sometimes users find it difficult to use it."

What other advice do I have?

The amount of time a user might use the solution all depend on the customer's needs. You do not create a Master Data link on daily basis. It can take a bit of time in a week. If your business has two domains and both are being implemented, it doubles up the usage and could require more attention. I would advise others before getting involved in a solution like this to look at the foundation of their organization and consider their strategy before moving forward. I would recommend this product. I rate SAP Master Data Governance an eight out of ten.

A good company process management tool that does what it says but is not user-friendly

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for the product is for master data management and the company IP.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable thing is what it does: data management."
  • "The user interface is not user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend SAP MDG to others who are looking into implementing it. If a company is already using SAP, then there is no doubt that it is a good choice. MDG is the preferred choice for SAP users. If they do not use SAP, the choice will be based on the detailed requirements for the company — the business requirements — to pick the right product. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate SAP MDG as maybe a seven-of-ten.
