Level:  Business/Strategic

A global beverage company wanted to improve its data quality as it embarked on a multi-year project consolidating multiple systems onto a single common SAP instance. Learn how the company implemented a data stewardship platform to support its migration activities and go live with relevant, clean data, validated to support its business processes. Learn how the company:
  • Recognized that in order to maintain a high level of data quality post-go-live it would not only require the same level of validation for data maintenance, but also need to manage the process by which data is maintained
  • Used a data stewardship platform to provide a blend of passive data governance (to monitor, identify, and remediate data anomalies) and active data governance (to sequence the collection of accurate data for new master data across customers, materials, and vendors)
  • Gained real business benefits — including fewer business interruptions and the ability to plan and make decisions based on clean and accurate data, thus driving internal efficiency and allowing the company to deliver better customer service

As VP of Global Pre-Sales, Mick Collins holds the responsibility of ensuring that BackOffice's solutions accurately address customer needs, and is responsible for the delivery of the data quality assessment engagements. He has more than 24 years of IT experience, including significant experience in data management, configuration, customization and development with SAP and Oracle.
