Uplatz offers this comprehensive training on SAP MDG (Master Data Governance) module. This is video-based online course (self-paced training). You will be awarded Course Completion Certificate at the end of the course.

SAP MDG (SAP Master Data Governance) is a module by SAP that empowers an organization in enhancing the data quality and streamline its operations. SAP MDG reinforces a collective workflow process that integrates business rules and subject matter expertise. SAP MDG module improves Master Data Management (MDM) function and activities such as customer service and financial consolidation resulting in simplified management and reduced cost.

SAP MDG is one of the first-to-market integrated and active data governance applications and provides its governance capabilities for creation, maintenance and replication of master data "upfront" (upstream) of line-of-business applications. SAP MDG is a pre-built solution that requires configuration rather than a toolset that requires coding. SAP MDG can also be configured to leverage consolidated master data from SAP NetWeaver MDM as well.

SAP MDG is an important module within the SAP ERP suite. SAP defines MDG as a state-of-the-art master data management solution, providing out-of-the-box, domain-specific master data governance to centrally create, change and distribute or to consolidate master data across your complete enterprise system landscape. Automated workflows in SAP MDG facilitate the stabilization and acceleration of the maintenance and business processes.

High-quality master data is a prerequisite for smart data-driven enterprises. With SAP Master Data Management you can define, enforce, monitor and improve master data quality for a centralized or decentralized MDM approach (Master Data Management).

SAP MDG is a state-of-the-art master data management solution, providing out-of-the-box, domain-specific master data governance to centrally create, change. It provides an integrated data management tool for the maintenance, validation and distribution of master data. MDG module is highly compatible within the SAP ERP system.

The integration accelerates the maintenance process leading to a vast improvement in the quality of the company's master data and ensures the observance of legal requirements, for instance by validating the checks already available in the ERP system for various business scenarios.

SAP MDG enables you to take on these challenges and to control all your master data processes uniformly and automatically.

  • Reuse individual, available SAP functionalities and data structures.
  • Use the standard SAP ERP checks.
  • Expandability and adaptation to customer-specific requirements.
  • User interfaces are adaptable, configurable and customizable with the aid of Floorplan Manager (ABAP Web Dynpro based).
  • A rule-based workflow is integrated via BRFplus, which can be adapted quickly and individually and permits automated workflow control, e.g. with simple double verification principle.
  • Central generation and master data maintenance.
  • Harmonization and consolidation of the data in heterogeneous system landscapes.
  • Observance of compliance requirements.
  • Transparency on how master data influence business processes.
  • Transparency on responsibilities in the area of master data maintenance.

Course rating


Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
