Company leaders struggle with eliminating fragmented data in an effort to streamline operations and create a more efficient work environment.

This session describes how to plan for a global consolidation and get buy-in for the projects from the business, while addressing what decisions need to be made and what impact those decisions might have on the business and on the project. Case studies of companies’ path to a single source of truth will reveal some of the businesses reasons behind their consolidation projects, evaluate critical success factors, and assess the consolidated systems’ effectiveness.
