(FIN_MDM_ACC), you need to make some changeovers (for example, from UI models to UI configurations)before you can activate the given business function. For more information about the changeovers, see theRelease Note
MDG_FOUNDATION: Master Data Governance, Generic Functions
When you activate this business function, the following functions from the Master Data Governance (CA-MDG)component become available:
Generic Basic Functions
Enhance Existing Master Data Models or Create Your Own
You can enhance the data models delivered by SAP (for example, by adding custom fields) and youcan create your own data models and use them in the change processes.
You use change requests to change master data using workflow-based change processes. Qualityassurance reports on the change process are available. You also can process change requests usingSAP Interactive Forms by Adobe.
Data Replication Framework (DRF)
The DRF is the technical platform for replicating the master data processed in a change request. Youcan use filters to make unrestricted and very granular data selections, for example, to replicate thedata of certain company codes in very specific systems.
Function for mapping values determined at runtime (for example, business partner IDs or materialnumbers) in the central system and target system.
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.
