“While one challenge was the customization of Preactor, the whole process brought to light the complexities of the system to the internal team and clearly highlighted the need for master data management. With a dedicated Master data Management (MDM) team, masters for all the required fields were created. Many processes which required disciplined data input were streamlined using special restricted processing to improve the quality of data input. At the end of the process we had created masters that would ensure the system runs meticulously.”O.P. BansalCIO, ITC (Packaging & Printing Division
