SAP Master Data Governance is a powerful solution to improve the quality and consistency of information across organizations by consolidating and centrally governing master data. Syniti Rapid Data Governance (RDG) is a SAP Certified accelerator that automates multiple MDG tasks such as Data Model Maintenance, Workflow Design and Business Rules in an intuitive, elegant, and graphical interface so that even users with no technical experience can use it. 

When performing tasks to create master data certain follow-up tasks may be required to enrich, validate and approve the data after initial creation in the system prior to consumption. As a requirement, one or more sequential Change Requests (CR) to execute these workflows may need to automatically created to complete the end-to-end business processes under governance. As an example, a customer can be onboarded in an initial request and assessed or validated by a legal team prior to updating their Partner Profiles in another automated request.

RDG simplifies the automatic creation of follow-up CRs, incorporating additional and subsequent workflows required to complete a series end-to-end business tasks, following the activation of an initiating CR. RDG eliminates accelerates the implementation of Follow-up CRs without the need for any technical coding.

The following steps to configure a Follow-Up CR to an initiating CR:
