The IT Manager's product data challenges

The requirements for the IT infrastructure are constantly increasing.

The number of communication platforms is increasing, we communicate in multiple languages, and the number of product variants is growing. At the same time, customers and partners expect product data to be consistent — at all times and everywhere.

This can be challenging when:

  • Your company wants to open new sales and marketing channels, such as e-commerce portals, microsites, e-catalogues and mobile devices in addition to old fashioned price lists, print catalogues and brochures;

  • Working with suppliers and customers requires updated product information to flow among all parties automatically;

  • Systems are not sufficiently integrated and information management is inconsistent;

  • Constant changes in business operations mean that your custom-built solutions need to be endlessly adapted.
