I rate this solution a nine out of ten. Although other SAP solutions are available, this solution provides seamless connectivity. Hence the chance of losing data is minimal. Additionally, the solution complies with all industry standards and validates all aspects from security to authorization and authentication as applicable at the backend, providing room for easy maintenance. This solution is good but it does not ensure data matches after system upgrades.

The amount of time a user might use the solution all depend on the customer's needs. You do not create a Master Data link on daily basis. It can take a bit of time in a week. If your business has two domains and both are being implemented, it doubles up the usage and could require more attention. I would advise others before getting involved in a solution like this to look at the foundation of their organization and consider their strategy before moving forward. I would recommend this product. I rate SAP Master Data Governance an eight out of ten.

We're clients. We don't have a business relationship with eh client. We've been implementing the solution for a number of years, as it's a National Defense project. The entire project is ongoing. Due to the nature of the project, we don't have anything on the cloud. Overall, I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

I would recommend SAP MDG to others who are looking into implementing it. If a company is already using SAP, then there is no doubt that it is a good choice. MDG is the preferred choice for SAP users. If they do not use SAP, the choice will be based on the detailed requirements for the company — the business requirements — to pick the right product. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate SAP MDG as maybe a seven-of-ten.

What SAP needs to do for this product is to improve the user-friendliness of the dashboard to make sure they are going to have a more user-friendly product in the future. Another task for SAP is to accommodate China's local requirements because this product is still a global one. Sometimes what the module does will not fit so well for Chinese user requirements. It needs to be more global-aware.

The workflow works well, however, there's not a lot of options in defining roles. There are roles that are very specific within the MDG and we had to adapt our process to the roles that are in the workflow. I'm talking about the workflow in the roles, not access rights or things of that nature (such as access or identity management). I'm talking about how the flow works in the different types of roles. It's not very flexible. Overall, they just a little bit more flexibility in terms of assigning roles or adding new roles. We have a longer approval process, so we need to break it down into more roles than what is typically available and we need to hard-code it.

The cost of the product is not ideal. It will be matched centrally by the global act for us. We have some help with the cost.

I don't have any details in regards to the licensing costs related to the solution. IT tends to take care of licensing and procurement.
