Master Data Management on the rise, but is SAP MDM 5.5 the best choice?


Last month was our big Master Data Management theme month. It was surprisingly popular, considering that it wasn't more than a year ago we tried another MDM push with little user interest and modest traffic. This time around, traffic spiked and items like the new SAP MDM 5.5 quickstart guide took off for the moon. Clearly, MDM is on the rise and you, the readers, want to hear more about it.

Indeed, as the big ERP players move towards SOA with open arms (or ESA in SAP's case) it seems that more and more turn to some type of Master Data solution to get the most out of the next generation of ERP technology. In the course of the theme month I heard users and industry experts talk about MDM and SAP's MDM 5.5 product, the most current release. Interestingly, it seems not everyone agrees SAP's own MDM product is the natural choice for SAP shops.

Now, I don't use MDM myself so I'm going to throw the question out there to you: what's your take on the issue of SAP MDM 5.5 vs. other MDM solutions for SAP shops? 

Please send your two cents on the matter to us for a chance to win a nice book bundle:

Good luck!
