In September 2015, the CDQ team launched a neutral platform for practitioners to exchange knowledge regarding SAP MDG. Participants may share their experiences, present their solutions, work on best practices, and provide feedback to SAP for their future MDG product roadmap.On the 27th of April, experts from Bayer, B.Braun, Bosch, Emmi, Linde, Nestle, Schaeffler, Sick, Storz, Redbull, and ZF met to reflect on the approaches presented by SAP regarding MDG-M classification and the issue of maintaining multiple addresses of business partners. In general, the approaches presented by SAP were highly appreciated by the experts. The representatives from SAP announced that they will be able to present their schedule and implementation plan in Q3. In addition, the participants elaborated several ideas for improvement regarding hierarchies (products/ customer/suppliers), usability and performance. SAP offered to showcase solutions already available in MDG’s financial hierarchy management. A web conference was hosted by SAP on the 6th of July 2016. Members of the SAP MDG focus group can find the recorded session in the SAP MDG forum section.
The next workshop will be held on the 13th of September, 2016, in Gottlieben (Switzerland). Focus topics will be the ongoing reflection of the approaches presented by SAP, the implementation of the data model in SAP MDG, and reference data management.
