Master Data Management (MDM).
Professional management of your data.
The establishment of consistent reporting, the use of fully automated intercompany processes, overviews of sales and purchasing volumes: clean master data is the very basic requirement for using the full efficiency and transparency potential of SAP.
If, for example, the master data is not consistent, up-to-date, or it contains double entries, the aforementioned goals cannot be achieved without time-consuming mapping programs or manual and thus error-prone reworking.

MDM programs – the basis for long-term success
GAMBIT regards master data management as a program, not just a one-time action. Besides the cleansing of historical data stocks, the prime focus is the assurance of long-term up-to-dateness of the master data.
GAMBIT MDM programs qualify master data according to various criteria. These include, among others:
- Quantity structure of data
- Frequency of the creation and maintenance of data
- Skill maintenance for experts and working groups
- Data requirements regarding availability, validity, and distribution
- Use of data in intercompany processes
The design of target processes, the assignment of organizational responsibilities, as well as the implementation of necessary tools in SAP and the IT environment are all carried out considering the above criteria.
