Fast master data management in SAP NetWeaver BW without IT support: DMK Deutsches Milchkontor GmbH has achieved this aim by using AGIMENDO.edit of IBsolution. Due to well-defined access rights each business department is now able to manage its own data records easily and securely.

Thomas Döscher, Chief Financial Officer, DMK Deutsches Milchkontor GmbH
With a production of 6.7 billion kilos of milk annually and a manifold product variety, DmK Deutsches Milchkontor GmbH is the largest dairy company in Germany. For years, the company claims its position in a difficult market environment. Brands like MILRAM and OLDENBURGER are succesful in Germany and worldwide.
DmK Deutsches Milchkontor GmbH is now able to easier manage its master data by using the addon AGIMENDO.edit for sap netWeaver BW. Business departments can now edit characteristics and attributes by themselves – even if they do not originate from sap SAP ERP. IT knowledge of useres is not required and users do not have to access the sap user interface of the system back end. unlike in the past, administrators and executives no longer have to apply for modifications. This speeds up the processes in the departments and disburdens the IT department of routine tasks. Due to an intuitive web-based interface users can create new and edit existing data. the view of the user interface can easily be adjustet according to tasks: key users can arbitrarily combine the displayed characteristics and attributes of an information object and make them available to their colleagues for data maintenance. Individual access rights ensure that employees only can see the content they need for their work.
Reliable master data management
With convenient search and filter functions, large quantities of master data can be processed quickly in SAP Netweaver BW. However, the solution not only makes it easier to enter values, but also to adapt them later during operation. in addition, planning projects can be created for DMK Deutsches Milchkontor GmbH products, which are in early stage of development. iBsolution ́s various AGIMENDO solutions engage into one another. For example, with AGIMENDO.process the sales department can carry out its sales planning and take account of the new articles even before the market launch. The innovative software for master data management has convinced DmK Deutsches Milchkontor GmbH very quickly due to a short implementation time. Within one day the application was ready for use. Chief Financial Officer Thomas Döscher summarizes: „Our IT department can concentrate again on large projects. Furthermore, we are now having up-to-date master data at all times.“
