Director Advisory & Master Data at SolutionSpace
Peter has a distinct focus on business models, configurability of products and services, and how this impacts and sets requirements on Master Data for pricing and product variance. Through his 15 years of experience implementing Master Data Methods and Governance in various C25 companies and several mid-size companies, he refined his focus on products and services, drifting from Engineer-to-Order and Produce-to-Stock towards highly configurable offerings with related complex and dynamic pricing. This requires a new approach to MDM and Governance: as Master Data acts as infrastructure, the mapping of business processes in different departments and system capabilities falls in the work of advisory.
