Tetra Pak joins the Competence Center Corporate Data Quality
We would like to extend a very warm welcome to Tetra Pak, the world's leading food processing and packaging solutions company, as the latest member of the CC CDQ! We have put together some information to give you a quick overview of how data management at Tetra Pak looks.
Since the modern ERP era, Tetra Pak has always recognised the importance of both data governance and proper data management. During the past 3 years, the company has been putting in place a modern data governance system that includes data quality analytics as well as significant workflow automation. In late 2016, Tetra Pak began consolidating some of its various data teams to build a centralised team focused on data stewardship and to assist global transformation initiatives in implementing their data objectives. The company established this team within one of Tetra Pak’s shared service centres for synergy. This year, Tetra Pak senior management has requested a renewal of the data strategy to incorporate the following:
- Reinforce and emphasise the role of data ownership: Expand the current definition to encompass more than just data in order to meet the challenges of digitalisation and products or services that rely heavily on data and data quality
Expand and grow the role of master data stewardship: Shift all data domains away from reactive data cleansing activities toward more metric-based monitoring that incorporates intrinsic business value to work on the areas that serve our customers and their needs
Capitalise on the opportunity of the next generation ERP (S/4HANA): Define and incorporate proper data fundamentals into the planning and execution of the next generation ERP initiatives with an emphasis on simplification and sustainability of proposed master data structures
Tetra Pak is looking forward to participating in the CC CDQ. The company is enthusiastic about the opportunity to share experiences and to collectively advance and expand the understanding of the fundamentals of world class data management.
