Key Mapping

Value Mapping
 Function for mapping values determined at the time of design. While configuring the central system(in Customizing), you define, for example, country codes and map these to their counterparts locatedin the target system. The application-specific enterprise services use value mapping.
Changing and Replicating of Master Data
Master Data Governance enables you to change master data in workflow processes. You can assignauthorizations to these workflow processes. The workflow processes are documented for reviewingpurposes.
The system manages and documents all change steps in a change request.
You can access and edit the change requests from within a worklist in the portal.
You can replicate master data changes from the central system, in which you make and manage thechanges, to the target systems. The DRF enables the automated replication of data. You can run suchreplications either on a regular basis or on demand. When doing so, you can use filters to determinewhich objects are to be replicated in which systems. In addition to IDocs and enterprise services, youalso can use upload and download functions to replicate the master data changes to the targetsystems.
