In these times of globalization, it is becoming more and more important, particularly for large multinational companys, to create tighter links between their international departments or subsidiaries, and this includes their data. Many processes within a company are now conducted in different departments in several countries, which means an increase in the demands on the company’s databases. Trading products, for example, need global article numbers so that they can be clearly identified. It is also important for the correspondence within your company that addresses can be matched with individuals and individuals to departments and locations.
Globally standardized master data and global standards are necessary for units of measure for packaging and container sizing as well as for product and article labeling. This standardization in master data management is known as Global MDM.
