The Up Coop data management project

Up Coop was looking for an intuitive software solution to bring together its numerous data sources, repositories, and IT solutions. They wanted to bring all of their information together on one platform. They needed a data storage solution to help all data employees visualize their entire data ecosystem and take ownership of data within their sectors.

When it turned to DataGalaxy’s Data Catalog 360°, Up Coop’s data structure was still being created, so it was important they had support in implementing their data catalog. Getting the help they needed was an important criteria regarding the choice of the data management solution.



    Up Coop needed a tool that could provide practical solutions beyond the simple documentation of data, property, and IT solutions. They needed a software solution that could:

  • Verify data quality and generate related performance indicators
  • Allow them to continue to offer quality services to retailers and to improve operational efficiency for the entire organization
  • Provide data visualization to ensure all signed contract contracts were respected
  • Add value to their data sets and to provide risk management for RGPD and security measures
  • Continue to provide value in the long term

Implementating the Up Coop data catalog

Up Coop’s team knew they needed a platform that was more than just a documentation tool: They wanted a data catalog that was integrated into a larger organizational approach of data growth management and an assessment of the work processes.

A key step of this project was to redesign Up Coop’s marketing indicators, allowing teams to provide context and additional meaning to the data collected by their new management tool.
