"We aspire to make data and information a process discipline, and will continue to build towards that vision
Crump feels many large enterprise customers either have their eye on business transformation or want innovation through Big Data, but they won’t attempt either unless they have a reasonable process for managing data on the other side of the change event.
At a time when most providers hand over static deliverables, DATUM’s focus on a ‘teach to fish’ model aims to promote strong internal leadership and knowledge within the client’s workforce. They regard this as a key success factor that sets the company apart from the rest. Focused on enabling customers with a repeatable framework for successful tools deployment, DATUM is making information management easier and investing heavily in expediting time to value for many of the preferred data solutions to the SAP marketplace.
Johnson & Johnson is one of the biggest beneficiaries of DATUM’s solution. The multinational healthcare leader has a history of respecting data and information challenges. DATUM offered a solution that helped Johnson & Johnson to effectively design enterprise data governance and manage data. Baker Hughes, Eli Lilly, Johnson Controls, General Mills, Bunge, Abbott, Mars Chocolates and ConAgra Foods are some of the successful clientele of the company.
Going forward, DATUM’s vision is to establish Information Value Management as a management console for the growing information organization within large enterprises. Consider them the Chief Data Officer’s best friend because of the instant identity and focus on value they bring to information management. The company also plans to continue to refine its services focus in stimulating business transformation through building confidence and competence in data and information success. “We aspire to make data and information a process discipline, and will continue to build towards that vision,” concludes Crump.
