Implementing Product Information Management (PIM) in any organization is complex. Getting consensus across lines of business around how products and services should be organized and related to one-another, getting to a single source of the truth, and getting all the data into one system of record is challenging to say the least.
But what if your goal was to implement a shared platform and product information source to share across multiple operating companies in a conglomerate? Is PIM a good target for a shared service? Are there limits to the value of having a centralized platform for PIM? Can you get different businesses, with different priorities, different processes, different products and services, and different clock-speeds to all standardize on a PIM platform and data model?
Join us as we explore how and whether shared PIM platforms, master data, and services are right for parent-subsidiary enterprises.
The audience for this month’s Roundtable are executives responsible for marketing and digital commerce in retail, manufacturing, supply and/or distribution in such industries as apparel / footwear, hi-tech, materials, aerospace, life-science and MRO.
