MDM in a landscape with extreme master data volume & volatility

I'm interested in any statistics relating to the performance of MDM in landscapes where tens of millions of master data records are managed, and have very high volatility (i.e. >10k master data changes per day).

I've read most of the collateral available and can't see any clear guidelines or warnings. Obviously, infrastructure plays a major part in performance, but I'd be very interested in any examples or studies.

Thanks, <i><b>Andy</b></i>

    Hi Andy,

    In general, as you pointed out there are a number of factors including the infrastructure, server types, network latency etc that can play a big role in determining the answer to your question. We generally see such large volume requirements coming in from specific industries such as banking and retail and continue to incorporate them into our release planning. We currently cannot provide you with specific numbers given the sheer number of factors involved as mentioned above and additionally, such factors such as time difference between triggers, whether the changes follow a bell curve distribution in terms of throughput etc. As you can imagine, there are a number of variables involved.

    We would rather suggest that if you are involved in an MDM implementation, to contact the SAP project lead who will then work with us with respect to your specific requirements. Generally speaking, MDM sizing information is based on ongoing performance tests and is communicated to SAP implementation teams through SAP Field Service once a project has been initiated.

    thanks

    Sunil

    • Thanks Sunil.

      We're at the assessment stage at the moment, and are planning several feasibility workshops. I've been in contact with the SAP-MDM product manager for the UK (CB), and he's been very helpful, and will be contacting him again with the specifics of our customers requirements.

      Thanks again, <i><b>Andy</b></i>
