► Data protection regulation as a fuel for sustainable digital transformation

Yao Schultz Zheng, Former Head of Compliance, BMW


  • Centralized IT organizations have historically been considered a cost centre, not a business enabler. Therefore many monolithic systems have been built to save on license, maintenance and operating costs.
  • Data protection (GDPR and Intellectual Property), however, is a cultural, national or regional issue, since collecting and consuming valuable data in the digital age has a very high impact on the security, profitability and competitiveness of a country or region.
  • There is therefore a high tension between legacy centralized data processing and the strict requirement to store the data locally and close to the owner.

How (illuminated by a case study)

  • Breaking down rigid, centralized and waterfall-based silo process and organizational structure and establishing a risk-based, policy- & identity-driven, distributed and networked BizDevOps process and organization model.
  • Disassemble historically grown monolithic systems according to data protection as well as the need-to-know principle, and additionally to provide more agility.
  • Build decentralized hybrid cloud infrastructures
