Data Governance Solution for Retail & Fashion Now Available on SAP S/4HANA® 1809

New Release Improves Centralized Management of Retail Data to Control Access and Change By Adding Flexible and Scalable Mass Processing

MUNDELEIN, IL (July 24, 2019) – Utopia Global, Inc., a leading software and services company for end-to-end data quality, data migration, and data governance solutions has announced the newest release of SAP Master Data Governance, retail and fashion management extension by Utopia available on SAP S/4HANA® 1809.

New functionality in SAP Master Data Governance, retail and fashion management extension by Utopia available on SAP S/4HANA includes:

· Retail Mass Processing (RMP) of multiple articles in one change request

· Easy Excel upload to create and enrich existing change requests with the ability to separate out articles into a separate workstream

· Faster data enrichment via Excel upload and onscreen mass maintenance features

· New version 9.2 is compatible with latest S/4HANA 1809 and previous releases

The management of article master data has been a major pain point for retailers due to inefficient and manual processes. As the amount and detail of this data is constantly increasing with multi-channel retailing, this poses a significant challenge for IT organizations to keep it accurate and consistent across systems. As a result, master data records are often duplicated, inaccurate or out of date. SAP Master Data Governance, retail and fashion management extension by Utopia allows retailers to bring new products and services to market faster and deploy an omnichannel experience while reducing IT master data management costs.

This latest release gives users the ability to manage data in one simplified environment, while offering tools that aid in the creation, enrichment and standardization of retail master data. By providing a predefined data model in a central repository, users can establish and enforce standardization in the same environment as master data for finance, materials management, supplier and customer relations. The predefined model for article master data objects covers key attributes such as merchandising categories, article hierarchies, bills of materials, basic and purchasing views, while role and function-based field settings allow for optional process support.

“Every retailer faces the challenge of streamlining retail processes and lowering costs,” said Martin Printz, Global Director of Retail Solutions at Utopia Global. “For the first time, SAP customers have an easy and integrated way to address this issue by leveraging functionality within their SAP MDG system and expanding on it through a platform built to significantly improve productivity through end-to-end data creation, management and governance.”

SAP Master Data Governance, retail and fashion management extension by Utopia for SAP S/4HANA is a part of Utopia’s growing portfolio of SAP software for the retail industry and is a commitment to helping retailers address their biggest master data challenges.
