Product data can lose >15% of its accuracy, quality and value as it gets shared and updated. Not only does this lead to questionable data, but it can also lead to questionable business decisions. Discover how Product MDM solves these challenges.
Product master data management enables you to efficiently collect, collate and onboard accurate, up-to-date information from a broad range of internal and external sources, including manufacturers, brand owners and content service providers.
Options include an integrated import manager that enables enhanced onboarding through Smartsheets, supplier item Web UI and GDSN subscriptions. These tools make it easier to ingest data, ensuring it’s available for effective use within business processes.
A rigid product master data policy demands all data touchpoints be synchronized with the system of record. Product MDM can serve as the central repository for this data, as well as the source of information and content to be sent to downstream systems and applications. Stibo Systems’ open platform supports a growing list of inbound and outbound integrations, including tools to assign and manage unique global identifiers to attributes across the enterprise.
Integrations include MongoDB, Amazon SQS, SAP Material Master Connector, Hybris, and Ariba CIF/cXML, along with outbound data integration using traditional ETL techniques.
Organizations implementing Product MDM with other apps will find this combination, along with our existing integration suite (Oracle AQ/JMS/IBM Websphere/REST/JSON), offers a wide variety of options to quickly realize business objectives.
The solution also includes seamless integrations with leading translation services and a print publishing solution.
Product MDM leverages data modeling, roles, workflows, business rules and controls to efficiently guide and govern how data is used, managed and shared across the business ecosystem.
The solution features machine learning-based auto-classification, as well as powerful mapping tools to associate products with multiple classification structures, domains, entities and assets. These provide univocal terms of reference to support superior decision making and business results.
With Product MDM, users can implement and enforce policies from the start unlike many traditional PIM solutions, which often lack the ability to create golden records or match and link products. The ability to do so ensures stability and consistency across all touchpoints.
In addition to standard attributes, classifications and references, Product MDM offers additional modeling and governance features supporting the delivery of trusted data to meet specific industry needs. These include rule-based product classification, supply chain packaging and hierarchy management, a data catalog connector and fast-start prescriptive support for vertical markets.
The solution ensures data is accurate and fit for purpose by leveraging a range of tools for maintaining and enriching content. This includes enhanced error handling/data validation features that flag errors between sessions, accuracy, completeness and sufficiency metrics, and configurable faceted search.
Product MDM also includes integrated DAM, enabling the organization, storage and retrieval of constantly growing volumes and varieties of unstructured content, including images, audio, video, animations and other digital assets.
With the solution, you can protect asset ownership, integrity and copyrights by previewing watermarks before applying them to content. It also includes features to simplify image/content management, including an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) adapter.
