DXC Technology subsidiary and SAP solution specialist Oxygen has struck an exclusive partnership with DATUM, a provider of data governance and stewardship software.
The agreement will enable DXC to resell DATUM’s Information Value Management data governance platform to enterprise customers in Australia and New Zealand.
As large enterprises strive to deliver more agile business models based on data transparency, data standardisation, predictive analytics and high-quality data, Oxygen director Stuart Dickinson says digital transformation and data readiness have emerged as top priorities.
“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,” said Dickinson.
He said that based on decades of experience in information management, 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,” said Dickinson.
Paul Wedeking, senior vice president, channel strategy and ecosystem development at DATUM, 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,” Wedeking said.
DATUM’s Information Value Management platform has been named as a leader in The Forrester Wave: Data Governance Stewardship and Discovery Providers, Q2 2017 and the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Metadata Management Solutions.
