Presenting Maestro MDM Solutions at CGI Finland’s Microsoft Dynamics Customer Day, Helsinki, October 16
ATLANTA, GA—October 11, 2013— Profisee, a master data management and data quality software company, is expanding its global network with an exciting new partnership with CGI Suomi Oy, the Finland-based representative of global IT services company, CGI Group Inc.
The new partnership bolsters Profisee’s growing European presence, headed up by MDM veteran Ian Maclachlan. CGI Finland brings to the role of Maestro Consulting Partner a well-earned reputation for high quality engagements and first-class customer service, and a highly-regarded team of master data management experts with a depth of knowledge in the Microsoft technology platform.
According to Maclachlan, “The strength of Microsoft Master Data Services is as a base platform for master data applications. Implementing Master Data Management using MDS requires either a highly expert and experienced master data team within the IS function of a company, or the services of a proven and experienced master data systems integrator, such as CGI Finland. In Scandinavia, the preference is certainly to use large and proven system integrators to manage risk and operational costs more effectively. CGI Finland is one of a very few with a dedicated, focused data governance and MDM practice.”
Having implemented several MDS applications that required a lot of customization, the CGI Finland MDM team – and their customers – have seen first-hand the advantages of bringing the productized Maestro MDM application into the equation, in terms of faster time-to-value, as well as a lower total cost of ownership. CGI Finland’s team of highly specialized Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and MDM experts, having been well trained on the Profisee solution, now comprises a Master Data Maestro - MDS center of excellence within CGI Finland.
“Through extensive real-world experience with MDS, we sought out Profisee and their Maestro software as the ideal way to solve more of the key platform capabilities needed in enterprise MDM solutions. This greatly increases capability, accelerates delivery and reduces risk on MDM projects,” says Kari Rautanen, Business Manager for the CGI Finland MDM Competence Center. “Further, Maestro provides uniquely devised Golden Record Management capabilities – simply better and faster than anything else we’ve seen for handling matching and de-duplication of records, in batch and real time. This best-in-class product capability perfectly complements our best-in-class MDM services.”
Rautanen and his colleagues will be presenting on their MDM services and demonstrating the Maestro solution in their booth at CGI Finland's Microsoft Dynamics Customer Day to be held at the Helsinki Fair Centre on October 16th. Attendees of the event will hear from experts regarding the latest news about Microsoft Dynamics and its future prospects. In addition, conference attendees will learn about customer solutions, operational models and tools that are useful in practice. For more information, or to register for the event, visit www.cgi.fi.
