Adding a workflow solution for MDM?

Hi,

Does anyone know of a  3rd party solution for MDM that can add some workflow to speed up the data request from the user? Currently, the process to create or extend a vendor / customer / material master is as follows

- User fills out a form, and e-mail it to the MDM team

- They review the form for any errors and then check the MDM systems for any duplicates, etc

- There is some back and forth in the e-mail communications to get the data right

- Authorization is done via e-mail.

- The MDM team creates the records and e-mail the user to confirm that the work has been done.

- Once the data is in SAp, the user confirms if the data is correct.

What I am looking for is a workflow solution that can interface with the MDM to simplify this process and create a user "self-service" portal to speed up the creation of records.

It be nice if the workflow can use a adobe forms.

    Hi Abdul,

    you should check the Master Data Governance space. MDG has a built in workflow - no need for 3rd party software.

    Best regards

    Hi Abdul,

    MDG is on way of going ahead, but if you are already up and running on an MDM system then i would say you can use MS Visio or BPM for having some governance process in  place.

    You can directly give the control in the End users hands and let the system worry about all the validation and duplicate checks that needs to be done.
