During an audit of the data tools and software assets Marel had on hand, Elsa and her team discovered the company already had a limited license for exMon, the data quality management platform, and master and reference data management tool. Although the company was using it in a limited capacity for unrelated purposes, it was ideal for the task, and a tool Elsa had prior experience with.
Taking the initiative, she opened the company’s data warehouse – “We had the full license, so my first step was to implement it.”
With exMon in play, the team began moving away from the company’s legacy processes. Asked about its adoption and ever-increasing role in master data governance at Marel, Elsa responds
“In the first two or three months, my team got access to exMon and we moved away from using Excel. Within a very short time frame, we already had over 200 of the most important checks up and running. We have cross-system checks, and checks within each system. This was great news for the organization because they had never used a data quality tool before.”
