My name is Karen Allison and I set up MMZer01 Consulting Limited in January 2013. Like many people I first experienced Master Data when I was nominated to be a Super user on a SAP implementation project back in 1999. I discovered I was nominated because of my process design / development skills and my eye for detail .
I have gone on to successfully manage Master Data in a variety of industries and ERP's (SAP, JDE, Kerridge & Lawson M3) working in the UK, Asia, South America and Europe. I have actual business experience of making Master Data work for Customer services, Sales, Production, Development, Purchasing, Distribution and Finance.
I am absolutely passionate about helping businesses make the most of one of their most important assets. It takes a lot of time and energy to understand business Master Data requirements or identify the problem areas in your existing business landscape, to convey these to your business teams and to put the necessary processes, controls, reporting and teams in place.
It's important to keep up to date with recent trends and developments and I attend the IRM Annual MDG & MDM conferences.
I have completed the IDM Award in Data Management (Institute of direct & digital marketing), Business Analysis Practise certification (Chartered Institute for IT) and Change Management Foundation level (APMG) and Agile BA Foundation Level (APMG) since launching the company.
