South Harwich, Mass., March 4, 2013
BackOffice Associates, LLC, a leading provider of data migration and information governance solutions, with a concentration on enhancing ERP data quality, today announced that it will be a Gold-level sponsor of SAP-Centric EAM 2013. The conference takes place March 3-6 at the Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach, Calif.
Now in its ninth year, SAP-Centric EAM will bring the community together once again to network, share ideas and experiences, and explore critical solutions for Enterprise Asset Management (SAP PM). It is North America’s largest and most comprehensive program designed specifically for the SAP EAM community. BackOffice will be at Booth #15 at the event.
Bill Towsley, GM Information Management, Canadian Pacific Railway, and Rex Ahlstrom, Chief Strategy Office of BackOffice Associates, will lead a session about SAP Materials Management. The session will take place on Tuesday, March 5, at 10:45 a.m.
“I’m pleased to be presenting alongside Bill Towsley from Canadian Pacific,” said Rex Ahlstrom. “Master data management and data governance strategies exist today to help organizations streamline the creation and management of new-material masters. Our session will explore methods for managing the multi-role mass update process by breaking the update into stages that can be individually validated prior to routing and final posting to SAP.”
Added Bill Towsley, “The complexity of managing new-material creation goes up exponentially when large quantities of materials, such as MRO parts updates, are required to be validated and cross referenced prior to posting in SAP. We’ll demonstrate how streamlined management and governance eliminates duplicates and bad data entry, leading to business process interruptions.”
