  • Integrating Customer master data across multi-national (North America, Europe, and Asia) channels via architected data services to support DTC (direct to consumer) and retail channels for global ecommerce, point-of-sale, and call center touchpoints
  • Planning for simplified access-controlled new product introduction (NPI) of complex business models via a future MDM hub for Product data
  • Providing well-governed, multi-domain MDM business views to enhance and enable processes including product pricing, revenue recognition, consolidated buying, financial forecasting and reporting
