Why are we launching Product Data Lake?
Sharing product data within business ecosystems has grown dramatically during the last years driven by the increased use of ecommerce and other customer self-service sales approaches.
Most initiatives around handling product data has been focused on internal processes and technology, and there are many viable solutions for that today. However, we have not seen many solutions that solves the problems in the exchange zones between trading partners.
Most companies participating in cross company supply chains uses spreadsheets for exchanging product data. Doing that is very cumbersome, error-prone and does in most cases not provide the needed data quality for having self-service ready product data.
Product Data Lake is the solution to end the hailstorms of spreadsheets and automate the sharing of product data.
