Large global companies need to take a holistic view of their Data Architecture if they are to truly reap the benefits of their scale and reach. AB InBev is the world's largest brewer, with customers and employees on at least six continents, and this session explores its progress so far on its global Data Architecture journey as a way to highlight the importance of bringing people and data together for better Data Architecture, touching on topics including:

  • Building a global data team
  • Engaging stakeholders across the organization
  • The importance of having a comprehensive information blueprint or roadmap to facilitate communication
  • Architectural considerations and choices
  • Tool selection
  • Evaluating progress and successes

Harinder leads global data strategy and Architecture for Ab Inbev. He is passionate about building data products to unlock the power of information within the organization. 

Over the past 20 years Kevin has led ADRM Software to its current position as the leading independent provider of comprehensive industry-specific data models.
