Could anyone explain what is the exact difference b/w Master Data Harmonization and Central Master Data Management? I read the documentation but couldnÂ’t really differentiate the point-to-point difference between these two functionalities. For E.g: Part 2a & Part 2b in MDH looks similar to Part 2 of CMDM

Thanks and Regards,

Sam Mathew

    The main difference is that Master Data Harmonization is focused on managing globally relevant (identifying) master data attributes, whereas Central Master Data Management is finally aimed at handling all master data attributes centrally. Therefore, local maintenance is not foreseen in Central Master Data Management.

    Kind regards,
