Booking Holdings (NASDAQ: BKNG) is the world leader in online travel and related services, provided to customers and partners in over 220 countries and territories through six primary consumer-facing brands – Booking.com, KAYAK, Priceline, agoda.com, Rentalcars.com, and OpenTable. The mission of Booking Holdings is to make it easier for everyone to experience the world. During 2019, the Company had consolidated revenues and net income of $15.1 billion and $4.9 billion, respectively, and a current market value of approximately $60 billion.
Booking Holdings is currently undergoing a Finance Transformation initiative that will drive effective finance support for business management; promote strong governance and control in the organization; and have a world-class finance organization in terms of execution and efficiency.
Within the Finance Transformation Program, we are planning a global ERP implementation consisting of SAP Hana S4 to replace legacy systems. These legacy systems consist of Oracle EBS, NetSuite, SAP, and other systems across our global brand portfolio. In addition to legacy Finance & Accounting based ERP systems, we are also looking to standardize other processes and systems across the organization (Tax, HCM, Real Estate, etc).
A critical enabler for the successful initiation, execution, and ongoing operations of these systems and processes is largely dependent on the organizations ability to clean, standardize, convert, and migrate master data across platforms (MDM). In addition to the above, we are looking to build a Master Data Governance (MDG) structure to drive operational excellence across ongoing operations, consisting of standardization, process documentation, controls, workflow, ownership, and accountability. This person will be responsible for leading the end to end design, implementation, and ownership of ongoing operations for MDM and MDG. MDM will consist of master data for Customer, Supplier, Employee, Chart of Accounts, SOX Controls, Products, Assets, Facilities, Contracts, and even policies and process documentation to name a few.
