Data governance at the centre of new business models…
Oxygen, the SAP specialist subsidiary of DXC Technology – and which was once more easily identified as ‘UXC Oxygen’ – struck a deal it calls ‘an exclusive arrangement’ with DATUM, which provides data governance and stewardship software. It’s effectively a reseller arrangement, which gives DXC the rights to take DATUM’s Information Value Management data governance platform to enterprise customers throughout Australia and New Zealand.
In a statement, Stuart Dickinson, Oxygen Director, said digital transformation and data readiness have rapidly emerged as top priorities for large enterprises looking for agile business models based on data transparency, data standardisation, predictive analytics and high-quality data.
“The ability to consolidate and centrally govern data to ensure its quality and consistency across the organisation is a fundamental requirement of any transformation, and it is key to leveraging the advanced capabilities of S/4HANA, SAP’s intelligent cloud ERP solution,” he explained.
DATUM is a specialist information management company focused on solving business data complexity which is recognised as a leader by Forrester and Gartner. Dickinson said based on decades of experience and proven practices, DATUM has developed a data value management platform to help organisations define, manage and sustain a data operating model for ongoing information success.
“This partnership will enable customers to better identify what data is important to them, and enable them to improve processes in finance, customer service, procurement and across other critical business areas.”
Paul Wedeking, DATUM channel SVP said he sees Oxygen as a key partner to address customer success within the SAP community in both Australia and New Zealand.
“By joining forces, we can provide SAP enterprises with the strategy and implementation teams required to execute any data/information governance initiative. This includes a full portfolio of software and professional services that deliver an overall data strategy, data cleansing and quality initiatives, data governance and stewardship, data migration and ongoing efforts to ensure a smooth and accelerated digital transformation across the enterprise.”
The companies’ statement said analyst firms have highlighted DATUM’s Information Value Management platform within key reports and research, including naming them as a Leader in both The Forrester Wave: Data Governance Stewardship and Discovery Providers, Q2 2017 and the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions.
