SAP Master Data Integration has been described as a multi-tenant cloud service for master data integration. It provides a consistent view on master data across a hybrid landscape. It is a part of the SAP Cloud Integration Strategy.

But what does it mean? It means it will bring uniformity for master data objects across different SAP Cloud Solutions by using the SAP One Domain Model (ODM), a unified domain model for business objects distributed throughout different SAP applications. For years now, System Integrators have used Point to Point (PoP) integrations for master data between the systems in a complex landscape making it a nightmare for maintenance. It will reduce the integration effort by configuring the integrations between all instances in one place and also orchestrating master data from one place. SAP Master Data Integration (MDI) uses SAP One Data Model for out-of-the-box SAP integration and synchronize business objects across Enterprise Cloud landscape.

Please refer to Open SAP course - open.sap.com/courses/mdi1/ for detailed concepts and understandings.

MDI uses SAP One Domain Model. SAP One Domain Model is a single and coherent domain model for SAP's intelligent suite, spanning the digital core and all SAP Cloud line of business applications. With its harmonized domain model for objects that are distributed throughout the different applications, SAP One Domain Model provides a basis for a consistent view on master data across the entire, hybrid landscape. By mapping objects to a central domain model, SAP One Domain Model enables applications to synchronize with each other although they speak different languages, aligns configuration and transactional data, and sets the foundation for integration and extension scenarios.
