    Hi Maria,

    What ever i read from different forums. SAP has launched MDG to overcome the short comings of MDM based on different customers feedback. I feel if SAP has to make a choice between MDM and MDG, then SAP it will stick MDG.

    Again to your question will MDM will be there ?. MDM will be there i think. Even though SAP is bring all the components(EWM , SRM) on to S/4 hana which is called as digital core. But SAP will not discontinue any of the existing products. This is how i read.

    Thanking you

      Thanks Vengaiah! my question is then... if everything will be integrated in S4HANA, which one will be the advantage of maintain MDM? Because I understand that it will not be part of S4HANA, it will be keep separately

    Hi Maria,

    Good question -- SAP suggests MDM when you are large LE customer and running multiple instances of SAP systems . In that case certainly MDM will make sense.

    Now if you are SAP customer where you only couple of systems of SAP instances or single instance of SAP , then i would suggest mdg would be right fit for you.

    I hope i answered your question.

    Thanking you
