Announcing the finalists for the (EMEA) Gartner Excellence Award for Master Data Management 2013

If you have not heard already, Heineken International, GlaxoSmithKline, and Michelin have been selected as finalists for the EMEA-based Excellence Award in MDM.

The Conference and track chairs reviewed 12 to 15 detailed case studies from organizations of all sizes from many different industries.  Some programs were single domain; some multiple.  Some were national in scope; some global.  We were very impressed with the detail and increase in maturity and scale of the programs we reviewed.  However, we had to select three and it was a close run thing.

Congratulations to Heineken, GSK and Michelin.  Now the hard part – presenting to the conference floor and “getting the vote” from the attendees.  Good luck and see you there!
