Increased data quality with a simple solution

The key objectives for the solution were increased data quality with a harmonized corporate-wide master data management process, and the possibility of managing data for multiple operative systems via single user interface. Since Suominen was also renewing their ERP at the time, it was considered a plus that the solution also supported legacy system migration and data cleansing activities.

"The workflow-oriented SmartMDM tool has proven a proficient tool to implement the Suominen data governance model and needed controls."
- Timo Rautakorpi, CIO, Suominen
