Fix data quality of existing business partners in SAP MDG, cloud edition

Product Manager

The November SAP Master Data Governance, cloud edition 2211, introduced a new functionality provided with the integrated CDQ solution: CDQ First Time Right is rolled out to existing business partners, enabling more speed in change processes too.

With the 2205 release in spring 2022, the first CDQ solution was integrated into SAP MDG, CE: Business Partner Lookup function was enabled for new business partners. CDQ provides a “Golden Record” which combines the data hits from the matching external reference data sources and combines it to one record with the most recent, correct, and valuable data. With the 2208 release in summer, the solution was further improved and refined.

The November release brought the new functionality “Look Up and Enrich”. Business Partner data with its available content is checked against the external reference data sources.

This helps to fix incorrect data sets regarding name, address, identifiers, or tax numbers. Furthermore, missing data can be conveniently added by enriching the existing business partner with attributes from external data sources. The usual governance and federation process can then be used.

Learn how the “Look Up and Enrich” works as a whole

Within the business partner record, click the “Edit”-button and then “Look Up and Enrich”. The “Look Up and Enrich” functionality conducts a search with all available attributes of the existing business partner record.

  1. Use Look up and Enrich to search for additional reference data for a Business Partner.
  2. Existing information of the Business Partner is used to search for reference records from CDQ. Search criteria can be manually adjusted.
  3. Select the reference record of interest and pick from the provided information.
  4. Automatically, all configured data sources are referred to provide data. As usual, the CDQ Golden Record augments Business Partner with additional data from our proven reference sources.
