According to the product overview that introduces my past blog post about the MDG innovations in the SAP S/4HANA 2020 release, I’d like to give you an update on the 2021 innovations along the following key capabilities in SAP Master Data Governance on SAP S/4HANA:

MDG Innovations with SAP S/4HANA 2021

Central Governance

Central Governance comes with various enhancements in the MDG framework and across the individual master data domains. These include, for example:

  • Continue improvements in usability and performance prioritized via SAP Customer Connection (for example, recall of change requests, enhanced search of change requests, improved error message for Material data, hierarchy download and enhanced features in hierarchy comparison and processing of Financial data)
  • Adaptation to SAP S/4HANA innovations (for example, handling of multiple addresses for Customer data, attributes for Financial Services Business Partner, account type ‘Cash Accounts’, new fields for ‘Budget Control’ and ‘Open Item Mgmt by Ledger Group’ for Financial data)
  • Support of mass changes for long texts fields in mass processing

Consolidation and Mass Processing

The extended scope in consolidation and mass processing of Business Partner and Product data includes, for example:
