Business Situation

Client’s legacy data in SAP ECC wasn’t consistent and complete. There is no data governance process to maintain the master data (customers and vendors). Migration to SAP4/HANA is in the Client’s road map. Converting the existing customer and vendor data into a structure with Business Partner is one of the key prerequisites to move to SAP4/HANA. Each region (or territory) is following their own process to maintain the master data in SAP ECC, where there is no centralized control or process maintained company wide.

  • DataZen (Master data management)  - Implemented Forms for data entry, complex approval workflows, data governance, access control, DNB integration for credit check, multi lingual support, custom business data validation, data profiling, data cleansing, and data deduplication
