Gartner Data & Analytics Summit EMEA (Virtual)
Event - Virtual | 18-20 May, 2021
Semarchy is pleased to be a returning Premier sponsor of Gartner Data & Analytics Summit EMEA in 2021. We are 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 are excited to once again have a client presenting a new case study at the event. Join Magnus Wernersson from Volvo Cars for "Data Centricity & Digital Innovations with MDM Architecture." Pekka Tamminen from Solita, a critical Semarchy partner, will co-present covering some topics on the implementation side.
This session will discuss 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. Join this session to learn how Volvo Cars approached the challenges from an MDM-architecture perspective.
New to Semarchy this year, we will also be moderating a special roundtable, hosted by VP & General Manager EMEA, Hervé Chapron. This 45-minute small group session is designed to be 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.
Lastly, while we cannot invite you to stop by the booth in the exhibit hall for a demo, we can invite you to visit our Engagement Zone and request a meeting with any of our well-qualified and friendly Semarchy staff. We look forward to connecting with you there!
