Retail - MDG + Pricat in HANA 1709


In retail industry (using SAPRetail) I would like to know if it is possible:

1. Activate Pricat using S/4 HANA 1709
2. Activate Pricat with MDG-F and MDG-S in the same system (using S/4 HANA 1709)
3. If I can't activate Pricat or MDG, is there another tool tha I can use in order to govern materials, G/L accont and suppliers master data in retail industry
4. If I can´t activate MDG, can I use another tool in order to govern G/L accont and suppliers master data (in S/4 HANA 1709)?

I know that:
- In S/4 HANA 1709 is valid use MDG 9.1 but I do not know If I can use MDG with SAPRetail
- We can use Pricat if we use SAPRetail at least without using SAP HANA 1709

Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Hi Alejandra,

    you can use MDG and activate MDG with SAPRetail and govern all master data for the standard MDG domains (financials, material, business partner (customers & suppliers) or any custom object).

    For the Retail Article there is a partner Solution Extension available which has to be licensed separately. Both MDG-Material and MDG-RFM can run together.

    For PRICAT we did not do any explicit test, but I saw that it can be activated on S/4HANA as well (not knowing about separate license cost though). I should work independent or complementary to the MDG offering (for sure it does for MDG-F and MDG-S) - but customer should make sure the processes around Material / Article work hand-in-hand. On the S/4HANA roadmap we rather recommend to include hybris commerce solution which is part of the so-called "SAP Retail Reference Architecture" whereas Pricat is not.

    Feel free to contact me directly via since I work closely with many MDG implementation projects incl. partners.

    Best regards
