Disappearing thread?

Is Big Brother watching? Was I censored? Did the SDN forum hic-cup? Anyways....I had posted a thread yesterday about MDM and IS (Industry Specific solutions) limitations, received a response from MG on it and posted again on it this morning but viola, it is now gone. What happened? =)

    • Hi Chris,

      Sorry for any inconvenience.

      Anyway, in your message you mentioned that the standard SAP MDM data model currently doesn't integrate

      IS-Oil specific vendor/customer attributes, and you asked how in general industry-specific data

      is addressed by SAP MDM.

      As a matter of fact, SAP MDM is not an out-of-the box data model that embraces each and every industry needs from the scratch. I think this is obvious.

      SAP MDM has to be open and flexible to integrate with any solution. Therefore SAP MDM includes e.g., enhancement features to adjust the data model to specific needs.

      In our product definition cycle, we certainly consider SAP industry solutions as stakeholders bringing in their requirements. These are thoroughly evaluated and, if suitable, brought into standard. Examples here are the industry specific requirements coming from e.g, the Consumer Product and The Finances/Banking sectors.

      Kind regards,

      Markus

    Hi Christopher,

    We don't believe in censorship. Please feel free to ask again. The MDM section was recently opened and it is possible we had a hiccup.

    Cheers

    oops...the censorship remark was being sarcatic. =) Sorry if it was taken wrong. I for one appreciate all you uys (SDN folks) do here. I am quite grateful to have this place.

    I will hold all questions/comments/experiences/etc till after MDM is GA (if then even). Thanks. Maybe this new area of SDN was a little pre-mature other than initiating some buzz and some pre-release info.
