SAP MDM adoption in Market

Hi MDM Experts

I have a few questions about SAP MDM adoption in the market. Inferences from your personal experience would help (I have already done enough searches on the websites). This would help the MDM community in understanding the direction this new concept is headed

What are some of the live implementations that have taken place (your personal experience); what was the methodology adopted & time frames for completion.

What are the popular master data & or scenarios that is brought under MDM - Vendor/Material/Customer/Products/Article

What industry types are seen increasingly adopting MDM - any trends like Auto/Retail/CPG/Pharmaceuticals/etc

What is the popular approach - Proof of concept/Prototyping/Phase wise implementation/Big bang approach

Any pointers or any inferences would help.

Thanks in Advance

    Hi Rehman,

    Many companies have implemented SAP MDM and planning to implement SAP MDM. So it is considered as a developing technology. Also many companies are not aware of MDM.

    I have worked on three implementation projects I am sharing my experience for you.

    (Due to company policies I can’t disclose the project and approach details)

    <i>What are some of the live implementations that have taken place (your personal experience); what was the methodology adopted & time frames for completion.</i>

    SAP MDM Data Enrichment Service Implementation, SAP SRM-MDM Catalog Implementation and MDM Implementation for banking clients are the projects I have worked for.

    Methodology: Each company has their own implementation methodology. It has been defined based on their experience and solution approach.

    Time frame: Time frame depends on the system landscape, data size, Data model complexity. The time line varies from 2 weeks to several years.

    <i>What are the popular master data & or scenarios that is brought under MDM - Vendor/Material/Customer/Products/Article </i>

    I have worked on Material master, Customer master, Product master and Business partner. From my experience and from forum knowledge I can say the popular scenarios would be Material master and Business Partner.

    <i>What industry types are seen increasingly adopting MDM - any trends like Auto/Retail/CPG/Pharmaceuticals/etc</i>

    SAP MDM can be implemented for any enterprise. The focus area is their needs. Say a bank may require SAP MDM for its procurement process or an automobile industry may require SAP MDM for its business partner maintenance.

    <i>What is the popular approach - Proof of concept/Prototyping/Phase wise implementation/Big bang approach</i>

    Above all, for initial start you can proceed with Case studies on real time implementation either specific to the client's need or specific to the technology.

    Hope this sharing helped you.

    Thanks,
