Partnership addresses growing demand for digital transformation
MUNDELEIN, IL (Oct 17, 2017) – Utopia Global, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise data solutions and an SAP software partner, today announced a strategic partnership with DATUM LLC for a bundled master data governance software and services offering.
Combining the benefits of Utopia’s data governance portfolio and DATUM’s Information Value Management® (IVM) software, this collaboration creates an end-to-end solution to address key challenges faced by organizations who recognize that data quality and data governance are critical parts of their long-term data strategy. The joint solution includes a complete package of software and consulting services to deliver an innovative approach to data strategy, data remediation, data migration, and data governance initiatives.
Digital platforms like SAP S/4HANA offer new capabilities for predictive analytics, IoT and real-time decision making, but depend on high quality, reliable and consistent data for success. Utopia’s data governance methodology builds and enforces pre-defined data rules and processes to ensure the highest level of data integrity, across all systems of record, creating a single version of the truth. IVM provides the framework to map and link this critical data to business rules, business value and business processes.
“Utopia understands the big picture when it comes to the critical role data has within an organization. Their extensive portfolio of high performance software, along with a global footprint for consulting support is a testament to their passion for helping organizations achieve their strategic business priorities,” said Will Crump, President & CEO at DATUM. “We are proud to enhance our partnership with Utopia and offer our customers a unique approach to maximizing the value of their data assets, drive change and improve business outcomes.”
“DATUM’s IVM solution helps fill an often-overlooked critical business gap - connecting data discovery and metrics with business goals. Their cloud deployment model makes business adoption of critical data governance processes very scalable,” said Arvind J. Singh, CEO of Utopia Global. “There's wide acceptance in the industry now that data has become a strategic asset in an increasingly digital world and is often cited as ‘the next oil’. Together, DATUM and Utopia have an extremely powerful digital transformation solution.”
