Welcome to Fortex.co!
Arkady Kleyner participated in a Q&A regarding the future of Retail Product Performance:
Arkady, you recently came back from the National Retail Federation conference. What are some of the issues that retailers are struggling with these days?
There are some interesting trends happening right now in retail. Amazon’s presence is creating a lot of disruption which is pushing traditional retailers to modernize their customer experience strategies. For example, most Brick and Mortar retailers have a web presence, but they’re realizing that web presence can’t just be a second arm to their business. To succeed, they need to integrate their web presence with their stores in a very intimate way. To make that happen, they really have to peel back the onion down to the fundamentals of how product data is shared and managed.

If you’ve seen my video about what Master Data is, then you know about some of its inherent consistency challenges. But there is one type of Master Data that is particularly vexing. And that’s Product Data. See unlike many other types of Master Data like Customer, and Company, there are few solid outside data sources to validate product data. This is because the manufacturer of a product largely determines the products name, weight, color, description, etc. So segmenting product data can be very difficult even for a human to do. This challenge is magnified because product data is used
