    Hi Venkateshwar,

    Master Data means the data which doesn't Change,

    Master data is the central information source for your company. All SAP components access this data. By integrating master data in central database objects, you can avoid data redundancy. SAP components use data from the individual master data records for most transactions.

    while Customer Data means the Data which is related to Customers like Name, Address, Tel No etc.

    Regards,

    Sunil

    hI,

    Master Data: Master data is data that remains unchanged over a period of time. It contains information that is always needed in the same way. For example, all personal attributes can be stored in various SAP standard infotypes as records with specific validity which are called Master data. Transaction data: Data relating to the day-to-day transactions.

      Hi,

      We can differentiate the data into two types:

      1)Master Data &

      2)Transactional data

      _1)Master Data:_ Data which won't be changed very often is called master data.

      Example: Name of an employee

      2)Transactional Data: Data which will be changing regularly is called transactional data.

      Example: Time data of an employee-i.e., Daily intime & out time of an employee

    Hi

    Master data, or reference data, is information that is key to the operation of business and is the primary focus of the Information Technology (IT) discipline of Master Data Management (MDM). This key business information may include data about customers, products, employees, materials, suppliers, etc. which often turns out to be non-transactional in nature. In this regard, master data can support transactional processes and operations, but its use is certainly not limited to such (analytics/reporting is another area greatly dependent on an organization's master data). Master data is often used by several functional groups and stored in different data systems across an organization and may or may not be referenced centrally; therefore, the possibility exists for duplicate and/or inaccurate master data.

    Thus Master Data is that persistent, non-transactional data that defines a business entity for which there is, or should be, an agreed upon view across the organization.

    Master data is also called reference data master data is any information that is considered to play a key role in the core operation of a business. Master data may include data about clients and customers, employees, inventory, suppliers, analytics and more. Master data is typically shared by multiple users and groups across an organization and stored on different systems.

    customer data table is Kna1.

    it maintains all the information regarding customers.

    thnx
