Consultant Data Engineering

"Data as the foundation for supply chain solutions: you can make the difference for our customers by making the right data available in the right way."

Data engineering is the foundation of good supply chain solutions. For example, how do you set up a well organized and secure data infrastructure? Or data flows in a cloud environment? How do you manage information security? As Consultant Data Engineering at Districon, you will be solving these questions. You provide advice on the data infrastructure, so the right data is available in the right way to the right people. In doing so, you can make the difference for our clients in food & beverage or retail. You design solutions that support supply chain processes, such as a production planning solution for a manufacturer or a solution for an S&OP/IBP cycle. You only stop when you are sure that the customer is completely satisfied.
