This crash course is an aid to selecting, installing and operating the core components of SAP Master Data Management (MDM) 5.5. It is intended to supplement SAP guides.
MDM is a package of heterogeneous components -- a diverse mix that makes selecting the right combination the first step to a fruitful implementation.
While MDM is firmly positioned as the Master Data solution for SAP NetWeaver, its underlying technology stack is eclectic, and allows quite a bit of site-specific creativity in the software selection and installation process.
The Java API is the focal platform for custom coding on MDM. A section of this guide is dedicated to getting both experienced and novice Java developers started on MDM based custom development.
Finally, a few tips and helper utilities are included for the care and feeding of the MDM ecosystem.
