As we all know, successful master data distribution requires configuration that is the same in all systems. For example, I cannot distribute company code or plant related master data, if the company codes and plants are not configured in the recipient system.
I have several question regarding this:
1. How to identify exactly which configuration is required. For example: Business partners need Countries, regions, address versions etc. Material needs Material types, material groups etc. Does MDM provide this list per master data object ?
2. How to align the configuration across the system landscape. I know that Solution Manager provides some functionality, but not all. For example, Solution Manager cannot synchronize Plant addresses (yet). Also, is MDM integrated with Solution Manager ?
3. How to update non-SAP system with this configuration. Sometimes non-SAP systems need to receive master data, which can be achieved by using XI. But, how do we make sure that these non-SAP systems also receive the required configuration ?
Looking forward to anyone's reply to this !
