DSM cleans up SAP data to save time and money

Arif Mohamed

DSM Nutritional Products has implemented the DataFlux tool to verify and validate data in its SAP R/3 systems.

The global manufacturer of nutritional goods expects to save time and money by using DataFlux to classify its internationally coded spend and materials data.

The DataFlux data quality tool will help the company to optimise corporate purchasing, and maximise the value and efficiency from existing SAP R/3 systems.

DSM said DataFlux allowed business users to set coding rules themselves, and maintained a single, consistent source of “master data” within a reference database.

“We have experienced a remarkable improvement in the accuracy on spend classification,” said David Barron, master data manager at DSM. “This investment is aimed at supporting our global initiative to reduce purchasing costs by ensuring the quality of spend classifications at an operational level by profiling, verifying, customising and monitoring our data on an ongoing basis.”
