Enabling data-driven decision-making on higher-quality data
Having implemented SAP Master Data Governance, Shanying has established a unified master data standard for the entire business. Using a team of experts to check master data for accuracy, the company has adopted a new standard of “One Material, One Code.” This has boosted overall data quality and reduced data volume by 57%, while cutting back on the volume of material groups to just 933, down from 5,319 previously.
By eliminating duplicate master data, the company has enabled consistency between different business units, improving group-wide transparency and reducing the transaction cost between different business units. As part of the project, Shanying also cleaned legacy data and designed different cutover plans for every business unit to minimize impact.
With one, unified master data standard across its three businesses and multiple systems, the management team at Shanying now has access to accurate and high-quality data to inform decision-making.
