    • SAP Master Data Governance: Empowering business users to make material data changes while upholding data standards.
    • This demonstration shows how the SAP Master Data Governance application allows you to access centralized functionality to
    • create a workflow-driven change request, and approve material data changes while complying with data standards
    • Enabling you to empower business users to make material data changes, ensure the quality of master data,
    • and comply with data standardization and governance requirements.
    • Create a workflow-driven change request.
    • John Miller is a product management specialist and is responsible for initiating master data changes.
    • John opens his SAP software to request a change to the company’s material data.
    • Product management has decided to change the classification of one of its items – a pump – from “special design” to “standard design.”
    • The software lets business users like John make changes to material master data, while ensuring that the change complies with pre-defined data
    • standardization and governance rules.
    • John starts by searching for the material he needs to change.
    • He can search for the data several ways, including a full-text search or a direct search from a drop-down menu.
    • Since he knows what he’s looking for, John types in the item name.
    • The search produces one result, which John identifies as the correct material by looking at the data attributes.
    • He selects the material and clicks the change button.
    • First, John needs to complete mandatory fields in the change request form.
    • He adds a description, sets the priority, and adds a due date and a reason for the change.
    • Next, to change the item’s classification, John needs to modify two additional fields.
    • He expands the options and chooses the appropriate value for the laboratory where the pumps will be assembled.
    • He then changes the product hierarchy, following the same procedure to choose a value.
    • John adds a note for Maria Fuller, who is responsible for approving the change.
    • Before submitting his request, John wants to make sure that he completed everything correctly.
    • The software confirms that he has followed all of the change-request steps appropriately,
    • ensuring that this change is in compliance with the company’s data governance rules.
    • He can now safely submit the request for approval.
    • Once the request is submitted, the software triggers an automated workflow which channels the request for approval.
    • Approve material data changes while complying with data standards.
    • Maria Fuller is a data steward and is responsible for checking and approving changes to the company’s material master data.
    • When Maria opens her SAP Master Data Governance software, she sees the change request from John.
    • Maria selects the request and reads John’s note in a preview pane.
    • As she begins the approval process, the software leads her to the material data requiring the change.
    • She is immediately able to verify the changes by viewing the fields with the new information.
    • But Maria wants to get a closer look, so she drills down into the change request documentation for more detail.
    • She can see all of the changes John has made – as well as the old, and new, values.
    • Everything appears to be accurate so Maria will approve the request.
    • She adds a note to document her decision.
    • The software’s role-based configuration provides Maria with access to administrative data fields, where she can add her comments.
    • Maria activates the approval and the request is released.
    • The software confirms that Maria has successfully activated the change, which will trigger any other predefined
    • processes to update the data throughout the enterprise.
    • The software sends John an e-mail message indicating his request has been approved.
    • A link in the message takes John to his list of change requests, where he selects the appropriate change request number.
    • John reads Maria’s note and is pleased with how quickly and easily the change was populated throughout the enterprise.
    • SAP Master Data Governance centralizes master data management and empowers business users to make material data changes
    • while ensuring quality and data governance standards.
