MDA Workbench.

Master Data Aficionado Workbench is a free and powerful tool for transforming SAP functional knowledge into functional and technical deliverables for data migration, interface mapping, or generally working with data in SAP S/4HANA or ECC 6.0.

If you create mapping documents for SAP data migration or interfaces ... then you need MDA Workbench.

If you use Legacy System Migration Workbench ... then you're working too hard! You need MDA Workbench.

If you work with SAP Master Data and Configuration ... then you're likely to find MDA Workbench to be a handy addition to your toolkit.

MDA Workbench is a productivity booster.

Its main purpose is enabling SAP data migration and mass updates by creating LSMW projects, ready to import into an SAP system. But MDA Workbench is incredibly useful for more general tasks, such as creating beautiful mapping documents as Excel workbooks or extracting data from an SAP system-client for analysis.
