    Hi Chandu ,

    There are plenty on threads for newbie on MDM .

    Some of them are :

    new-to-mdm

    mdm

    flow-of-mdm

    mdm

    Basically , You got wrong impression abt MDM . Its wrong to compare databases and MDM . MDM sits on the database . Its called Maser Data management cause all the organisation Master Data can be/is maintained in MDM and then sent out to other systems .

    Your next question will be that why we need to use MDM . The answer lies is this thread :

    benefits-of-master-data-management

    hello chandu,

    c if this can answer atleast ur 2nd n 3rd question.....

    real time scenarios:-

    1) What if your company has facilities around the world and you need to perform a global spend analysis? You want to tally global spend by product, by plant, and across business units.

    You want to compare vendor prices and performance with industry benchmarks, collaborate with suppliers to improve product yield, and much more. But the information you need –

    for example, master data that is error free, harmonized, and reliable – is trapped in various information silos throughout your organization. Your organization lacks the enterprise information infrastructure to carry out such analysis.

    2 ) what if you are with a large company that has recently acquired several smaller companies? They are operated as wholly owned subsidiaries. You suspect that several or perhaps all of the companies use the same vendors, and you need to leverage this fact in your purchasing process. But the master data from order processing is either unavailable or not integrated – another lost opportunity.

    3) Perhaps you need to know more about your customers, for example, to better align sales territories and distribution channels or package the best cross-sell offer for customers, based on their current relationship with your company. But a heterogeneous

    IT landscape makes collecting integrated customer information extremely difficult or, in some cases, simply impossible.

    4) large pieces of machinery are a major company asset and you would like information about their cost, depreciation,maintenance, and other key data. But you do not have the

    infrastructure in place to efficiently gather, analyze, or use this information.

    SAP MASTER DATA MANAGEMENT

    Fortunately, there is a solution that goes beyond homegrown solutions, data-cleansing solutions, or the capabilities of enterprise application integration (EAI) software – the SAP Master Data Management (SAP MDM) a key component of the SAP NetWeaver technology platform.

    Key advantages :-

    SAP MDM allows your organization to aggregate, map, exchange, analyze, and disseminate master data – at a business object level and on a global scale – without disrupting your IT infrastructure.

    • The main purpose to use MDM (Master Data Management) avoids duplication.

    • The MDM contain Accurate and consolidate master data, so it is used to reduce the cost to maintain master data, and we can fetch master data easily without affecting confusion,

    • The MDM increase the execution of business process, improving decision making, and helps to companies to maintain their competitive advantage by providing reliable information.

    So for that reason only all the companies using MDM.
