Product Data Management

Product data management includes classification, standardization, elimination of duplicate data, and processes to manage these activities. Mastering product data is different from the regular domains such as customer and vendor data, where standards exist to a certain extent. Product data standards are still evolving, and the complexity and variation within the product data descriptions makes it difficult for traditional tools and approaches to handle the product data management process.
