Marks & Spencer is a 136-year old company that is undertaking a widescale transformation programme. This new iterative, ambitious approach to innovation is driving new areas of revenue growth, personalisation, and digital transformation.
To support these ambitious business goals, Marks & Spencer is following a non-invasive approach to data governance that maps to company objectives will make everyone responsible for accurate, well-governed data use — rather than relying on top-down controls and restrictions. Underlying this approach to data governance is the Alation Data Catalog, a key component to curating the content of data, creating a shared understanding of what the data means, and fostering a virtuous cycle that rewards adoption with tangible benefits, whether the user is a data engineer, data scientist, or analyst. What this brings to M&S, what are the tangible benefits at a simplistic level.
