Gartner Data & Analytics Summit EMEA (Virtual)
Event - Virtual | 18-20 May, 2021
Semarchy was pleased to be a returning Premier sponsor of Gartner Data & Analytics Summit EMEA in 2021. While we would have preferred to meet in person, we were excited to join this virtual Gartner format, as it remains one of the biggest and most important events in this industry.
About the Event
Per Gartner tradition, we were excited to once again have a client presenting a new case study at the event. Magnus Wernersson from Volvo Cars presented "Data Centricity & Digital Innovations with MDM Architecture." Pekka Tamminen from Solita, a critical Semarchy partner, co-presented covering some topics on the implementation side.
Available to watch on-demand by clicking below, this session discussed how when saddled with a mature, overwhelming IT legacy and data landscape in need of modernization, Volvo Cars needed to create a fundamental MDM platform from the ground up. It was not only challenged by being a multi-brand, multi-legal entity, global organization but also by enterprise data management immaturity and a departmentally siloed history. Watch this session to learn how Volvo Cars approached the challenges from an MDM-architecture perspective.watch
New to Semarchy this year, Hervé Chapron, VP & General Manager EMEA, hosted an interactive conversation around "How to Combine Data Management & Governance to Improve Business Value."
Business managers are more hands-on in data management and governance, making it critical to effectively integrate, refine, and explore data that spans customers, supply chains, employees, etc. This roundtable discusses the problem of data silos, the proposed solution of a data hub, and how it spreads the glue of data governance, MDM, and data quality. Join to discuss the tradeoffs of converged platforms, and keys to successful data hub programs.
While we don't have a recording of this conversation for participant privacy reasons, if you would like to discuss this topic, get in touch!
