Product Data Syndication Is Key To Global Product Experience Uniformity
WHAT IS PRODUCT DATA SYNDICATION (PDS)
Product master data is the consistent and uniform set of identifiers and extended attributes that uniquely describes each product. Where no formal MDM has been implemented, this data is likely to be created and maintained across multiple business systems and siloed (such as ERP and product life cycle management [PLM]).
Product Data Syndication (PDS) is about publishing and sharing product data across different customer-facing channels, market places, merchants, and more. PDS delivers a coherent and uniform process to collect data internally, standardize it for each touchpoint, and seamlessly publish based on enterprises‘ business rules and quality standards.
With the growing explosion of customer-facing interfaces and syndication channels like B2C, B2B, and B2B2C, PDS enables customer-centric scenarios for improved customer engagement and experience through direct commerce and service channels. It truly offers powerful capabilities for eliminating multiple costly, manual, and inefficient processes that enterprises use in their marketing and digital commerce programs.
PIM & PRODUCT DATA SYNDICATION
Enterprises use customer-facing product information for multichannel marketing and commerce. Product information management (PIM), which often overlaps with MDM — in that product master data is included in the product information — but has different governance and reuse expectations. It also includes digital assets that are product-specific unstructured files, including pictures, documents, and multimedia. PIM software comprises the planning, creation, storage, and management of product data and related metadata.
Product data syndication capability in PIM software has of enormous value to many kinds of operational activities. By leveraging PDS in a PIM platform, enterprises can handle many scenarios like right data delivery, supply chain management, marketing, real-time pricing (or repricing), maintaining product availability, customer support, and other activities. The combined force of PIM and PDS gives the provision to share transformed, mapped consistently, and tailored product data by meeting trading partners’ unique format requirements.
