Best strategy for SRM MDM Catalogue

Former Member

Hello,

Can anyone advise on the best strategy to use when setting up an SRM MDM 2.0 catalogue?

1) Use only one repository and put all items from all vendors in this repositroy. Use masks or named searches to create views of the catalogue.

2) Create a separate repository per vendor, and enable the cross catalogue search function. (I assume the cross catalogue search only accesses those catalogues the user has been given access to.)

Thanks

Hi,

I would use option 1 because it is lower admin cost and user can use full catalog functions.

Hi,

We had a similar requirement, we followed 1st option.

As first option will gives the end user to drill down for a perticular type of item (from all the vendors) or he can serach for the items. In the second option if want to drill down, he need to go through multiple catalogs.( As per the end users most of times they us drill down for the items they are looking, and they search only they know more about the item)

Hope this answers your requirement, let me know for any additional details on this.
