Product MDM in a Decentralized Organization with a Multi-Domain Vision
Wednesday 20 May | 16:35–17:20 | MDM Track 2: MDM of Product & Reference Data
With operations in over 42 countries worldwide, TIMAC Agro International (Agro supplies branch of the Roullier Group) manufactures and commercializes fertilizers and nutritional specialties for crops and animals. The PROFERT (PROduct FERTilization) project consisted of building a Master database of all products sold by the European companies of the Agro supply branch while ensuring data conformity and regulatory compliance. This project included managing the product data lifecycle and data quality as well as distributing and sharing this reliable product information. This session will share some recommendations and guidelines that have helped during the PROFERT project in discussing topics such as:

  • Understanding the role & value of agile methods, organization & steps used for this project
  • Overcoming the various challenges faced— from getting executive sponsorship to maintaining a constant communication flow
  • Determining how & why this project has been positioned in a wider multi-domain initiative
