Jürg Hofer, Data Architect at Emmi Schweiz AG and Chairman of the Master Data Management Forum, discussed with us the crucial challenges of digitization for data management. Jürg covered topics such as the cultural change necessary to convert abstract data into knowledge, and how that made it possible for Emmi to effectively implement digitization. Jürg also explained the meaning of the principle "the intelligence of processes lies in data" as he understand it from his point of view.
