Enhanced mobile functionality, including new SAP Fiori apps, is a feature of the newest version of the SAP Master Data Governance application.

This version of the solution, which was announced at the TDWI conference in San Diego this week, also expands master data consolidation functionality to the material data domain in addition to supplier and customer data.

New integration scenarios now facilitate an exchange of master data across SAP S/4HANA, the Ariba Supplier Information and Performance Management solution and SAP Hybris e-commerce solutions, which according to SAP will help customers better manage data across hybrid cloud and on-premise applications and processes.

“Information governance is crucial to the success of all digital transformation initiatives – be it a business network, Internet of Things or Big Data and analytics undertaking,” said Philip On, vice president, product marketing, enterprise information management, SAP.

“Our newest version of SAP Master Data Governance offers a strong technology foundation to manage SAP and non-SAP data across any master data domain in one single application. It simplifies master data management and helps customers accelerate their digital business journey.”

Other new features of the solution include upgraded analytics and SAP Smart Business cockpits powered by SAP HANA, which increases its performance and scalability.
