“A growing number of global organisations, with combined revenues exceeding US$100 Billion, trust Entity to unravel the complexity of their enterprise data, and to define their on-going enterprise information management strategies and solutions,” states James Wilkinson, CEO of Entity Group. “Sponsorship of the Gartner Enterprise Information & Master Data Management Summit is a natural fit with Entity’s services. At the event, enterprises will discover deep research synonymous with the Gartner brand, and how to identify best practices across core MDM and Information Management disciplines. Entity has been providing best practice advice and solution implementation in this domain for almost a decade.”

Also being announced at the event is the successful implementation of London Borough of Camden’s ‘residents Index’. Entity has, in partnership with IBM and Scisys, implemented IBM’s InfoSphere Master Data Management throughout the borough. Within just three months, Camden has unified information from multiple services to create a single, consistent view of all residents and the council services that they are accessing. This gives a 360 degree view of how residents engage with services; driving cost efficiencies, avoiding duplication and fraud, and helping to deliver right-first-time services. Entity’s SIVIC – Single View of Citizen – implementation at Camden has been nominated for the UK Government’s Kable Computing Award.
