E. & J. Gallo’s product quality investigation process is a multi-stage process involving supply-chain information that starts from the grower and proceeds all the way to the retailer.
Unable to quickly identify product quality issues, which is dependent on multiple data silos, the company faced possible brand dilution, lost revenue, and FDA compliance issues.
The winery wanted to create a flexible, universal, and easy-to-deploy data services layer for the quality investigation process.
E. & J. Gallo implemented a RESTful data services layer using the Denodo Platform, to enable the easy, intuitive browsing of data entities across the entire supply chain.
The company created canonical data entities with grower, product, tank, barrel, and retailer information, for easy access to supplier information and the ability to quickly drill down to the cause of issues.
The Denodo Platform enabled single queries to multiple data sources, and a single information feed to multiple data consumers, from a single model.
Improved product quality – Easy issue identification in the manufacturing process helped E. & J. Gallo to quickly address quality issues.
Brand value – The Denodo Platform helped E. & J. Gallo to make product changes and product replacements to ensure their brand value remains strong.
Compliance: Through easy issue identification and deep-dive root cause analysis, the company is able to more promptly comply with FDA rules.
