DMAG provides compelling value by automating Data inconsistencies in SAP and makes the data business ready and compatible with Industry Framework for Materials, Business Partners, Digital Assets, and new G/Ls etc.

Data Inconsistencies and Data Dialysis

DMAG will identify the inconsistencies based on the Client Business rule set, Data Model integrity, and Industry Best Practices. In all the cases, DMAG reviews the master data inconsistencies by each object. There are three types ofinconsistencies, we derive using DMAG tool – inconsistencies with existing data based on the proven business rules, new data Model with Business Partners, and New fields introduced in Industry framework. The resolution will be via two methods: business rules inconsistencies are resolved by Automation, while new data model and new fields will be resolved via Guided Master Data (GMD) process.dmag3

DMAG – A fact or a myth? For every company, getting data right first time is key to achieve error free business transactions and seamlessrelationships with the key business partners, brokers, logistics providers, and most importantly, the clients.  This type of landscape requires anautomation tool that identifies data inconsistencies based on Industry best practices and predefined business rules, and automates the data inconsistencies. To address this challenge, Visionsoft is proud to announce a product called ‘DMAG’.

DMAG automates the Data Mapping, Data Transformations into new data elements, and automates the Data Resolutions. In addition, for the new data model and Business Rule inconsistencies, it provides a guided framework for the Data Stewarts to update the Master Data using Guided Master Data (GMD) Remediation. Further, perpetually, it will be a good tool for data quality check and data dialysis to measure accuracy and quality of the data proactively and take appropriate actions to cleanse the data perpetually, so the data is 100% error free.

DMAG can be used in SAP ECC or S/4 HANA perpetually. It is an ongoing assessment and proactive resolution tool to make the data error free. The Data audit can be conducted daily, weekly, or monthly based on frequency and volume of transactions for a data object.

The business Rule Sets will be maintained in a customization framework, so clients can customize their business rules based on their preferences, best practices, regulations, and laws.

Product Information – A Case in Point

Material Data is a critical component of Digital Product information distribution and for data synchronization between the business partners. There are number of considerations including Trade groups, Commodity Codes, Classification, GTINs, Customer Product Numbers, Attributes, and Price characteristics. DMAG takes into the above considerations and identifies all changes, and provides a report of all inconsistencies including the new data elements , changed data elements, and business rule inconsistencies. Business Rules are maintained in a customizing table, so each client can change their business rules according to their Industry standards. Below is an example of Product Master inconsistency report. The inconsistency report shows ‘ Business Rule inconsistencies’ for each Product vs. Industry framework below in Figure(2).
