This session carried over 45 attendees, and an eager to learn crowd on how this can streamline their digital business. SAP MDG supports central master data ownership and distribution, decentralization ownership and consolidation.

SAP Data Services and SAP Information Steward to Cleanse and Enhance Geographic Data


Moving to our next session, we were led by our two other Product Mangers that were on-site covering SAP Data Services and SAP Information Steward. This session used these two services to showcase how these tools can enhance your geographical data. Following the simple and smart capabilities that these two powerful tools have. This ultimately creates the connection between Data Steward and ETL developers to quickly start to develop data quality initiatives. These initiatives eventually led to the growth and demo of SAP’s newly released, “SAP Data Hub”. With the Data Hub we could see data being moved around to show case the strong geographic data being analyzed and instantly reported back to the user.
