Stibo Systems Cited as a Leader in Independent Product Information Management (PIM) Report

Stibo Systems, the global leader in multidomain Master Data Management (MDM) solutions, has received a Leader ranking according to The Forrester Wave™: Product Information Management (PIM), Q2 2014. In Forrester Research, Inc.’s 19-criteria evaluation of product information management (PIM) vendors, Stibo Systems was considered one of the most significant providers in the category and was evaluated based on three areas; current offering, strategy and market presence.

Stibo Systems earned the highest scores possible for its target market and enterprise track record, partner network, professional services and vendor-provided services. Additionally, the Company earned the highest scores among all vendors for market presence which was partially based on its scores for revenue and customer growth.

Key Takeaways From the Forrester Report Include:

  • “Stibo excels in integration with real-time systems, providing a multitude of transport and format options. Web service APIs based on SAOP and REST come out of the box and stay tightly coordinated with data model changes. Workflow management and tracking is standard to support the creation of product catalogs…”
  • Stibo’s inclusion in the report was due to its marketed standalone PIM enterprise application with unique capabilities that allow customers to validate source, market and promote, produce and sell, and support and retire products. Additional evaluation criteria included Stibo’s focused product road map that aligns with the direction of the market and emerging scenarios tracked by Forrester and its ability to support product data in a broader MDM solution including its rich support for the unique needs of retailers, distributors, CPG firms, and manufacturers.
  • Forrester has observed a considerable uptick in client inquiries asking about how PIM solutions can replace manual processes and home-grown tools. In a recent survey, Forrester found that 33 percent of eBusiness and channel strategy professionals cited that an investment in PIM technology was a top priority. Common scenarios that lead customer-obsessed organizations to invest in PIM include the need to have a single view of trusted customer-facing product data, reduce time-to-market for new product launches and to support larger product catalogs.
  • The PIM market is growing as marketing pros look to exploit the digital business. “Mobile, eCommerce, and online channels are where customers go to get information about products. Increasingly, marketing is going digital to be where customers are. To communicate accurate and consistent product information across an omnichannel landscape, they need a PIM solution to overcome the scale and complexity digital channels create.”
  • ”Retailers are prioritizing the enhancement of online product content above other merchandising initiatives including personalization, product recommendations, and A/B testing. Why? Detailed product content is a differentiator when it comes to customer experience.”

Forrester Research Quote:

"Customers appreciate the experience and responsiveness of Stibo to help with the technology as well as their ability to provide best practices to manage and govern product data,” wrote the report’s authors, Peter Sheldon and Michele Goetz. “Stibo rapidly deploys new functionality to meet market demands … In general, customers are happy they can start small with Stibo and scale the solution over time as the volume of their products increase.”

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
