Vendor Master Management - How to make 'Corporate Group' field an automatically updated field
I am doing a Spend Analysis and thereby restructring some aspects of SAP and business processes. One of the intiatives is to leverage the 'Corporate Group' field in Vendor Master for getting the consolidated spend visibility at the corporate group level of vendors. So far this field wasn't been used to effect. I can update it manually, but the question remains is how do I do with the change management of the corporate group of large vendor base in the scenario of everhappening Mergers and Acquisitions. Are there any alternatives anybody can suggest ? (Like linking D&B numbers etc)
Thanks in advance for your suggestions..
