Streamline Master Data Management with it.mds

Reliable business analytics depend on effective master data management. Find out how it.mds can help you simplify data maintenance.

Improve Data Accuracy and Automate Manual Tasks

Proper master data management forms a secure and stable foundation for business processes and decision making. However, managing data quality and keeping records updated can be extremely time-consuming and prone to errors if performed manually.

Moreover, with each new person that uses or modifies data, the risk of data integrity issues rises. Poor quality master data can result in significant inefficiencies and loss of revenue. To tackle this, we developed it.master data simplified (it.mds) – our effective solution for master data management.

Benefit from 95% Reduced Manual Data Entry

With out-of-the-box functionality and features that facilitate master data maintenance, your company can count on a single version of truth for decision making. At the same time, automated completeness checks and workflows help eliminate errors and save considerable time and effort.

Are You Facing One or More of These Master Data Management Challenges?

  • Are your business users spending hours performing manual tasks for master data maintenance activities?
  • Is unsynchronised data in your SAP systems leading to data integrity issues and error-prone processes?
  • Does your organisation lack a single version of truth for all master data?
  • Are you experiencing a growing need for an authorisations workflow?
  • Do too many people have access to the individual fields in your master data?

Thanks to clear business rules and defined responsibilities, it.mds helps you simplify data maintenance and enhance data quality.

it.mds: The Easy Way to Simplify Master Data Management

Enhanced Data Quality

Master data management needs to be based on central, standardised rules and clearly defined ownership – throughout the entire lifecycle. By harmonising and synchronising master data, it.mds minimises errors, inconsistencies, and data integrity issues.

Simplified Decision Making

Instead of complex, technical ERP terms, your users can define company-specific terminology to facilitate quick decisions based solely on business needs. With workflow support and a clear overview of all master data across your business, decision making is much easier.

Reduced Manual Effort

With it.mds, over 90 percent of data maintenance tasks can be automated. This not only reduces the risk of human error; it also saves your company significant time and enables your employees to focus on other important business activities.

Strong Governance

In addition to improving data quality, it.mds includes an integrated data governance process. This allows you to administer content and processes centrally and establish a framework for data integrity, availability, and usability.

Intuitive User Interface

As your organization grows in size, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage the rising volumes of data. it.mds makes your employees’ lives easier with a user-friendly interface that displays only the fields that are really relevant to them.
