Gibson will discuss how the group leveraged xDM from Semarchy along with seasoned expertise from Entity Group. Together they put a structure in place to standardize, expedite, refine and improve all aspects of the data shared across Mundipharma. This included 100+ independent associated companies, operating across 100 countries, five production facilities and three research and development centers.

“As an organization that relies on partnerships in the way we do business, we appreciate the value of the relationships we have built while innovating our infrastructure—like those with Semarchy and Entity Group,” said Gibson. “Sharing some of the best practices we have around preparing for IDMP with collaborative data governance, which may be instructive as our fellow European organizations prepare for other regulations like GDPR, is a way of giving back to the broader community,” he added.

Entity Group, specialists in Enterprise Information Management, were included for the third year in a row in the Gartner 2017 Market Guide for External MDM Service Providers*. They make it their business to understand IDMP and other data-related regulations and have a portfolio of advisory assets covering all aspects of data governance and management.
