The improved data quality of all major master data objects will affect the efficiency of all processes. For example, if you're talking about product from a supply chain processes to all other demand chain processes, it will improve analytical capabilities of our systems that we will be able to do more accurate aggregation of our data worldwide. So from transaction handling to more efficient transaction handling to better analysis of our sales or our spend, all this will deliver better decision making and increase efficiency. Another way SAP NetWeaver MDM is helping the company is data management process of our vendor master data. The poor data quality of vendor master data is a major obstacle for us against improving the efficiency of our procurement process. Implementation of our global SRM solution is slowing down due to these data problems.

We will be able to support the data governance process that will enable stewardship, data stewardship, which will enforce the global data standards and the higher data quality.
