The good thing about providing Software-as-a-Service is that you do not have to ship the software to all your users and the good thing about using Software-as-a-Service is that program updates are immediately available to the users without that an IT department has to schedule, plan, test and go live with a new version of an application. This is also true for Product Data Lake, the cloud service also being a win-win application by providing business benefits to both manufacturers and merchants of goods.
Using Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)
Already existing means to feed to and consume product information from Product Data Lake include FTP file drops, traditional file upload from your desktop or network drives or actually entering data into Product Data Lake. With version 1.7, that went live this week, you can now also use our APIs for system to system data exchange by both pushing (put) data into the lake and pulling (get) data from the lake.
