Heading for new shores – The General Data Protection Regulation as an opportunity

The revised General Data Protection Regulation came into effect in spring 2016 and will have to be adhered to by all companies within the European Union from next year onwards. Progress has been slow in light of the comprehensive changes and tightening regulations which companies are now faced with. Nevertheless, businesses will be unable to avoid implementing the extensive measures and substantial changes to their company structure. While feared by many, the decreed change does contain substantial opportunities for companies.

Mastering GDPR – Master Data Management is your first step

When it comes to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), many companies appear to be paralyzed. Although the regulation comes into force in May 2018, many have not yet even begun to implement the new guidelines. It appears that the requirements are too great and too far-reaching, and it’s therefore very difficult to take the first step. The GDPR sets out fundamental changes in the management of personal data: Its primary focus is the storage and use of data, as well as consent from the individual. In future, every company that manages or stores personal data of EU citizens must know what data is stored where and how exactly it is used. In addition, the consent of the data owner (the person affected) for precisely this storage and use must be verifiable and the data correct.
Anyone not fulfilling the requirements can expect staggeringly high fines of up to 4% of the company’s turnover or 20 million euros.

Poor data quality causes costs in various business divisions.

Informatica EMEA MDM 360 Summit: Be an intelligent disruptor!

Data is the critical foundation for everything

Digitisation is all around us and it happens in every industry. The choice companies have to make is a rather simple one: You can either drive the business as a leader or desperately try to catch up. On the EMEA MDM 360 Summit Informatica encouraged the attendees to be a disrupter, be ambitious and to rethink their businesses. For those who are afraid Ron Matusof, VP Advanced Customer Engineering, recommends: The thing about innovation is, that your idea never existed before so you cannot make the perfect plan. Just make the best decision you can with the information you have and stay flexible.

parsionate successfully completes management buyout and funding round

Some of you know our company since it was founded in the autumn of 2013. Our colleagues and we are grateful for the encouragement and support we have received from you over the past few years. When we decided, in summer 2013, to set up a company, we could not possibly have imagined that, only three years later, we would be employing more than 60 people at different locations. But we were confident that with our focus on processes to support digitisation we had found an issue that would be very important to our customers at home and abroad.

Today, parsionate is one of the fastest growing companies with this kind of portfolio in Europe. And we will continue to accelerate our growth: As part of a management buyout, parsionate’s management team and two commercial investors acquired RS Media Group AG’s shares of our company. In addition, the parsionate Group GmbH was founded as a holding company.
