The multinational company built data inventory and enabled data protection with Data Discovery as a Service
Client: A leading Energy & Utilities company
Industry: Energy & Utilities
Area of operations: UK and USA

The client had major challenges in discovering and managing personal data that was spread across their vast data ecosystem consisting of 600+ data applications. Their applications and systems landscape consisted of multiple diverse technologies including legacy systems and other applications. Many of these systems were old and thus, there was lack of clarity about systems carrying personal data.
The client needed an appropriate solution that would support data discovery and creation of data inventory to help discover and protect data as required for GDPR compliance.
Wipro implemented Data Discovery as a Service using a data security intelligence and analytics product, and solutions for managing unstructured data on the client’s systems and applications to help discover and build inventory for personal data.
The implementation of the data discovery solution enabled the client to take a holistic approach towards compliance, data discovery and data protection, and helped:
“Wipro team delivered ‘structured and unstructured data discovery engagement’ for the client as part of GDPR compliance. The engagement started with the team assessing customer needs and suggesting the best possible technology solutions. The engagement had stringent deadlines and demanded high level of data accuracy due to regulatory nature of the engagement. Wipro team delivered the solution on time, exceeding client expectations. ”
