Challenge

Over the years, our client acquired a significant amount of manufacturing companies across the globe. The integration of entities and exchange of information is not always evident. The different regional branches often unwittingly compete between themselves on pricing, leading to loss of margin. A solution to make information on their sales activities visible and readily accessible via a globalized data platform was required.

Approach

The first step was to define the best suited data ingestion–, transformation– and storage components for the future Data Platform. As a next step, we recommended Master Data Management (MDM) principles and Data Catalogue components. Simultaneously we implemented small end-to-end Proof of Concepts to demonstrate the actual value of our recommendations. Our mission also included to define best practice data governance principles to ensure future data quality. Finally, we recommended the best approach, with a corresponding on-boarding roadmap for each geographical region, to ensure logical and efficient integration of all entities into the global platform.

Benefits
