Master Data Management System
Master Data Management System (abbrev. MDMS) is an application that ensures data consistency when replicating data between multiple Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central databases. For this purpose, MDMS offers functions that enable the user to set up any set of data within Dynamics 365 Business Central database and replicate it to another Dynamics 365 Business Central database.
With its features for replication, master data management and data consistency, the MDMS application supports companies that use Dynamics 365 Business Central in multiple subsidiaries.
In MDMS, target companies with databases, to which data will be replicated are set up as receivers. It is possible to set up multiple receivers.
The structure of data replicated is set up as data sets.
Users can use any number of created data sets and set them up to be replicated to a particular receiver, by using a replication card. Replication can be set up as either Full or Incremental. While processing incremental replication, only the data changed or added since the last replication is exported.
The application is particularly useful when a company wants to create and maintain standardized Dynamics 365 Business Central cards (e.g. items, BOMs, vendor cards) in one main company/headquarters – called “master” company, and afterwards synchronize the cards and data with its subsidiaries (“receiver” companies).
The MDMS application uses SOAP Web Services as a data transport layer.
