How the solution responds to the challenges while migrating to S/4 Hana?.

Supports the coexistence of several SAP instances and offers flexibility on the governance

Changes to the SAP environment will impact third party applications. Finance organizations will continue to operate with many disparate systems for accounting, treasury… and often no single “master” view into finance data assets. This solution supports the coexistence of several SAP instances and enables users to govern master data across legacy and new systems with a significant flexibility on the governance.

Generates on the fly business use cases with a configurable validation process

Authorized Data Stewards can generate on the fly business use cases and easily configure their scope and validation process. Instead of building a workflow for each use, this solution provides a lighter way to set up as many use cases as needed without extra technical efforts. In addition, for each use case, the granularity for the data stewardship is defined on the company code level. This offers a flexibility to adjust the roles & authorizations to your organization based on country, zone, or company code level.
