Maintaining and storing big datasets is very time-consuming and cost-intensive. Due to the multitude of articles, it is particularly important in trade to automate the data creation and maintenance processes and keep data retention costs low. The FIS/mpm shadow database guarantees efficient master data management in your company.
The FIS/mpm shadow database is used as an external data basis for subsequent processes. Here, data with minimum requirements, such as basic product information, simple descriptions and prices, can be decoupled from the SAP live system and kept in the optimally integrated shadow of FIS/mpm. You can continue to actively use and process this data in the ERP system due to the consistent SAP integration. The reduced data volume requires significantly less maintenance efforts. Only if the information stored in the shadow master is required in the live system (e.g. if the product was ordered) will it be transferred to the ERP system, enriched and created as an article. This enables you to accelerate your processes and reduce the data retention costs.
There are numerous and individually implemented application scenarios for the shadow database of FIS/mpm. Read about the possibilities and potentials of such a database in the following factsheet or contact the SAP professionals from FIS for detailed advice.
