Hello MDM Guru's.
In our system Landscape, use Baan ERP system to fetch data into MDM, cleanse it and push data to SRM/BI system for Business Requirements.
Our MDM is neither connected to any R/3 (ECC) system. we want to have a kind of Reports developed for MDM Data present in our system based on Companies (our Manufacturing sites) and have a automatic mapping of our Manufacturers , Suppliers & Customers based on Global and local Stratergy.
According to my understanding, we can use MDM API's (ABAP or Java). As MDM is not integrated with any of the ERP (ECC or Netweaver Data base)?
We have options to integrate MDM with ECC 6.0 & Netweaver system. Which could be a better option to connect with? we are planning to integrate MDM with E-Portal too, could Portal data base be used.
Please guide me.
Thanks in advance
Refer to the below links.
Hope it helps.
If you want to use MDM in you landscape and store and cleanse data in it and then sent the cleansed data to a reporting tool for analysis then you can do it in one of the methods:
- Either connect MDM to the other systems in your landscape using XI as the means of data trnasfer
- Or connect MDM to other systems using the API.
In the first method.you need to use PI/XI to manage the flow of master data to and from your MDM system to others. MDM can be used for data cleansing and enrichment within MDM before syndicating it out.
In the second method you can connect to MDM through other systems using the API.
As you mentioned about reporting on the master data in MDM based on the Companies or manufacturing sites etc.You can achieve this suing MDM ABAP API.
ABAP can be sued as a reporting tool.wherein it will connect to your MDM system through the configured API and fetch the MDM data and generate simple reports .
If you wish to access the MDM data online you can use portal front end. but in this case portal wont be capable to store any information as it is just a front end.
You will have to use MDM as a backend storage system.JAVA API can be used for futher customization on EP.
For ABAP API use you can refer the below link:
For Java API you can refer the below link:
Hope It Helped
Thanks & Regards
Thanks for the information.
Now, i have specific question: We get data from Baan ERP systems (50 ERP system data) into MDM.
I want to have an user interface for Business Partners (Suppliers, Customers, Manufacturers), where Global Partners (Corporate) will be mapped to Local Partners(Companies depending on location).
Can we have: Baan --> ECC 6.0 --> MDM landscape for Business Partner Data flow. so, that we can create an Mapping interface of Global & Local Business Partners data using ABAP API's.
Baan --> MDM --> ECC 6.0 --> MDM landscape.
My basic intrest is to create a user interface using ABAP API's to mapping GLobal & Business Partners before syndicating data to other ERP system (could be an SRM/ ECC 6.0/ BI/ e-sourcing).
Can i use the Business Workflows in of ECC to connect to others applications (MDM/ECC6.0/BI/e-sourcing/ EP) etc.
can anyone send me official no.
