The general aim of the Master Data Management Portal is to list products (i.e. articles) from METRO Suppliers within the METRO Cash & Carry world.

We take three different users into consideration for the Portal:

  1. Category Manager (CM)
  2. Master Data Manager (MDM)
  3. Supplier

In general, the whole process starts after the CM and the supplier have negotiated and agreed on the products/items which will be bought from the supplier. Hence, after the agreement has been reached, it is the CM who gets in touch again with the Supplier to ask about the delivery of the master data. However, when contacting the Supplier we have to take into account a fundamental distinction between two types of suppliers:

  1. GDSN Supplier: This is a supplier type who provides his data over a data pool called GDSN (consider this as a centralized data pool to which bigger suppliers are connected to. GDSN serves as a broker between the Suppliers and the retailers). This type of data exchange is basically used by major Suppliers (such as Henkel, Nestlé etc.).
  2. Non-GDSN Supplier: This is a type of supplier who is not using a centralized data pool like GDSN to provide its data but simply provides its data by using an excel file to which it has been agreed on between the supplier and retailer. Most of the mom-and-pop suppliers (i.e. smaller suppliers) provide their data  this way.
